At Rapid True Value in Kingston, Jamaica, the lighting cloud
highlights the variety of fixtures in the store. "It adds an
extra dimension and decor to the store while at the same time
dividing up the expansive ceiling," says Patrick Chambers, chief
category manager for the company. "It is highly visible from the
outside, so our customers are drawn to it."
At Denver True Value in Denver, Colorado, a sample
product is wired to the front of the bin. This makes it
easy for customers to see what is in the bin. Since many
of these items are bagged, it means customers can get
a visual look at the item's size, and may save them from
trying to take it out of the bag before they buy it.
