Selecting Kiosk Styles

Choosing between an walkthrough or island style kiosk.

Whether you’ve been shopping for a kiosk, or just walking through the mall, you’ve probably noticed that there are two primary styles of kiosk-- island and walkthrough. When deciding on a kiosk for your own business, these two unique designs each have distinctive benefits.

Benefits of a Walkthrough Kiosk

Bigger: The design dictates that customers be able to literally walk through the kiosk. This can sometimes mean that your “kiosk” will have a greater
number of shelves strategically placed for displaying of your product.

Dual-Sided Display: This is a big plus for many mobile retailers, primarily those with less-expensive products. You may recall the seasonal calendar stands which sit in the center of many malls with their easily browsed “bookshelf” type feel.

Better flow across displays: Having your customers physically move through your merchandise is a good thing in retail. The closer they get to the product and the more they can see, the more likely they are to buy.

Interactive Retail Space: An employee working a walkthrough kiosk cannot sit idly by while customers simply admire the merchandise. Instead, a walkthrough design encourages the salesperson to actively engage customers as they walk around and through the retail selling space.

Selecting a Kiosk Size

How to choose the correct kiosk size.

The best kiosk size for any business is the one that fits comfortably in the rental space and has ample storage space for products when the day is through. At Palmer Retail Solutions, the most commonly ordered kiosk size is 10 ft x 10 ft. When deciding on the best size for your kiosk, you will want to consider three things:

  1. Your product
  2. The amount of storage space versus display space you desire
  3. Island versus walkthrough design

Product
The more expensive the product, the more storage space your kiosk will need. While a Pillow Pet kiosk owner may be able to leave their product overnight locked inside the display cases, a Rolex watch distributor is unlikely to be willing to take that much risk. We also find that cellular or wireless suppliers tend to need more space, due to the number of security devices required as part of the product display.
