Additional merchandising tips

ADDITIONAL MERCHANDISING TIPS

An inexpensive tin of paint can be used to paint your fixtures, touch up chips and keep things looking new.
Use fabric or paper under or behind a display to provide an eye-catching backdrop.
Use motion to attract attention. For example, use a scarf and a small fan to add colour and movement to a static arrangement.
To avoid a busy look, stick to a few colours and textures in props that complement your merchandise.
Use magazines and catalogues as a source of adaptable ideas for your displays. A great idea in another store won’t necessarily fit your image, yet the presentations pictured may trigger an idea for a fabulous creation of your own.
To give yourself a more hands-on sense of how to display products, while you are shopping, pay attention to the variety of approaches taken by other stores.
Your store’s housekeeping must be impeccable. A dirty store says you don’t care and indicates that you may not treat the merchandise with respect either. Create a daily checklist of all housekeeping duties to be completed. Dust the shelves. Clean the lights. Remove the clutter behind the counter. Vacuum daily. No smudges. No dust. No grime!
