Retail store countertops are wide open spaces just waiting
to be used. Whether they line the perimeter of the store, are strategically
placed on the sales floor, or are located at the checkout register, countertops
are flat surfaces suitable for displaying a variety of retail products.
Perfumes, hair accessories, jewelry, candy, and personal safety products are a
sampling of items sold from plastic
To attract the attention of shoppers, these displays must be
excellent at showing off contents. They also must be attractive, which makes
shopping for them an important task. However, retailers should not confuse
appearance with price because there are many very attractive displays available
at reasonable prices. Finding a vendor that offers these in bulk is as easy as
looking online because this is where the lowest prices are offered.
An angled fixture featuring three cylindrical acrylic bins
is just one example of the displays available online. These unique stackable
bins take up little counter space while displaying three different products.
Each bin removes from the stand for easy cleaning. The hinged lids and scoop
attached to each bin make dispensing an easy task. Each bin holds six pounds of
candy or can be used to hold small accessories or sample size beauty products.
Other types of stackable
acrylic and plastic bins are suitable for countertop display including mini
bins. These are sold as cases of three or four, organizing countertop sales
throughout the store. The small bins are graduated in size so each can hold a
different sized item. Whether retailers display gum, mints, costume jewelry, or
small emergency products in these bins, they are sure to get a decent return on
Uniquely shaped mini bins serve not only as displays but
also gift containers. Round, clear paint cans with metal lids come in several
sizes and styles including those with handles. Plastic hexagon candy jars with
lids cost less than $2 per container when purchased by the case. Small
decorated treasure chests can hold trinkets like jewelry, hair bows, or wrapped
Retailers should review these and the many other displays
designed for countertop sales. It should not take them long to find some that match
the décor of the store and fit into the space available on the countertops.
These containers turn retail store countertops into selling areas, offering
more products to consumers and increasing profit per square foot.
