Take advantage of wireless endcap displays

Endcaps are often described as the most important selling spaces within any retail store. When you incorporate wireless displays, your endcaps are not only more visually attractive to shoppers, they can enhance the customer experience as well. Wireless display endcaps can be anything from a tablet incorporated into a merchandise display to a free-standing, fully interactive kiosk strategically placed at the end of an aisle.

Are wireless display endcaps worth it?

All the way back in 2007, Home Depot Canada proved the value of interactive screens when they launched a multi-media lifestyle campaign called “Create the Deck of Your Dreams.” The campaign featured wireless display endcaps, which the company credits with boosting sales of deck accessories by 50% and driving a significant increase in sales of related goods and services.

For cell phone companies, placing wireless display endcaps in relevant retail stores are an obvious choice. Endcaps allow the companies to literally take their store to consumers who are shopping in other types of stores, broadening reach and increasing sales. The hosts store benefits, too, because these endcaps provide a valuable additional service for their customers.

Take Advantage of End Caps

Posted by Kathy Heil on Jul 11, 2014 9:19:30 AM

Create effective end caps to help you sell more.

End cap displays are notoriously golden sales areas for retailers. With a little creative merchandising – the right products and the right presentation – your end caps will keep paying big dividends all year long.

Here are some tips from the experts to help you create displays that will be top sellers in your retail store.

Combine related items

Whole Foods Magazine uses the example of combining foods and supplements in a health-related display, but you can greatly boost add-on sales by applying this concept no matter what kinds of products you carry. Since too much variety deadens the impact of an end cap display, use multiple adjacent end caps to promote complementary merchandise.

Or group products around a theme. You can choose obvious ones such as valentines and hearts for February, or look for themes that reflect your products. May is National Home Improvement Month, which could apply to keeping healthy snacks around the house as well as selling more paint or yard care supplies.

Seasonal themes – spring, back to school -- offer tremendous flexibility for all types of products and offer an ideal way to promote incoming merchandise, encouraging shoppers who want to be among the first to own what’s new. And holiday themes are a must. Use more thematic end cap displays during high-sales seasons such as Christmas.

Keep it fresh

End cap displays are hot sellers because they’re always new, creating a sense of surprise. So change them frequently, preferably every three to four weeks, and move them around your store, too.
