April 2017 | HARDWARE RETAILING
In the plumbing department at the Saskatoon Co-op, bath
vanities are shown out of the box and assembled. The
genius of these displays is they are moveable. Wheels on the
wooden carts mean they can be moved to a different location
on the salesfloor, or to the backroom where employees can
swap out the cabinets without getting in the way of customers.
Lengths of pipe can easily get messy, causing a
safety hazard if they stick out into the aisle. A messy
display also makes it difficult to find the correct size. At
Klingbeil Lumber, a box neatly organizes cut lengths of pipe.
These appeal to do-it-yourselfers who might only need a
short length of pipe.
