A fun and casual way to say that the store is closed. It might even fit in well with a Tanning relate retail channel, possibly skin care? Or do you think to flippant, and hinting of no concern for the customer? And it does not mention a return time. See other approaches in the links below.
Seen outside Boutique Retail in New Jersey, these Unicycle-esque outlines serve as Bicycle Rack for normal bikes, tandems, recumbent, as well as unicycles themselves. The benefit is the unique and personalized design adds to the sense of place of the retail cluster. Drive up, walk up, bike up and you find yourself in a refreshingly furnished environment with amenities that stick in your mind.

Combine your housewares offering like this twofer and you are likely to succeed in cutting your retail sales in half. Why buy one or the other when you can buy the Toilet Brush and Toilet Plunger together as a single unit? It might, however, be more appealing if the Toilet Plunger base came in some other than traditional Toilet Plunger color. Image Courtesy of Pure-t.ru.
McDonalds® is looking for very special workers to continue its friendly, welcoming tradition of fast food service (Hospitality Retail). Here the pitch for employees is carried outside the store, in addition to interior sign fixtures and support. You might want to inquire about any special physical required before you schedule an interview appointment for these posts however. Image courtesy of http://www.ranker.com.
Even the best Farmer knows not every Season’s crop turns out well. Same can be said for Generically Modified Crops. These GM Onions evolved as they grew into the shape of Cobs of Corn. But if they taste the same, would it matter in the preparation of your favorite dishes? What a shame to let them rot in the fields. Make an offer and you can take these home and try in your own recipes. Image courtesy of www.ranker.com.
Okay, so you may not be agog over the standard acrylic Plate / Book Displayer, but bumping up the merchandising by displaying a “Farts Spotters Guide” attention compeller is worthy of notice. And since Farts are invisible, the use of see-through, transparent acrylic seems justified. CLICK the thumbnail for closeup of the display stand then compare and contrast uses below.
This retailer’s Category Manager has determined greater style choices among Toilet Bowl Cleaning Brushes drives sales. Here no less than 11 offerings grace the Aisle corralled and contained by Shelf Edge Fencing and Fence Dividers. Look close to see the occasional Toilet Plunger. If sales are flagging in your Toiletries aisle )pun intended), try doubling down on the merchandise choices offered.
One would not think cupcakes could take on a life of their own and begin building a thread here on FixturesCloseUp. But that is the case. This image is from the “Lady Cupcake” post on chicquero.com. The site has nothing to do directly with retail or cupcakes, but you might enjoy it nonetheless. What do I get out of all this? Retail cupcake signage to expand this one-of-a-kind, competition-scopping fixture thread opportunity yours only on FixturesCloseUp.
No kids in this twin-seat Mall Responder Hook and Ladder Truck, so this must be for a shopping emergency. Notice the well positioned purse for easy access, and merchandise storage areas below back and up top front. Or maybe the kids just escaped while the ladies were engaged Tweeting. CLICK the thumbnail for a broader view of the scene.
Tough to stand out in a hidden market like Thongs, but this promise of an “Original One-Size Thong” does make for differentiation. The promise of One Size Fits All alone is food for thought. But the “Original” Thong elevates the item further. This is a gotta have particularly at a discount. As an ad man I would have bragged this boast big on the Hudson branded signage where the price is $138 … thong tag marked down to $20.00 … then $15.
If you like your candy well-organized, and not crossing flavor boundaries, there’s a Non-Bar Dylan’s Candy Bar for that too! Just enough of each variety is compartmentalized here to space out your tastes across the day. I like the package design except very hard to read against the color candy background. You decide if the “Dylan’s Candy Bar” title can be used cross-category. And just because I think that way, my mind wonders who’s mouth was used to cast the luscious pouty lips upper right? Dylan’s?
I am glad that I arrived too late to see this battle for women’s shoes. What carnage. What horror. “Oh the humanity.” Did floor staff merit hazardous duty pay? Was the Red Cross on hand? Will the cleanup crew need HazMat suits? And all of this with the Christmas Season and Black Friday months away.
Gary Larson’sFar Side humor is used here to reinforce that you really, really should wash your hands after a visit to tyne restroom, particularly in an eating establishment. It implies modern sensors may just sound an embarrassing alrm should you exit otherwise. Would you take the chance? Seen at the restroom egress in Hospitality Retail. CLICK the thumbnail for a closeup. Thanks to Gary and the Universal Press Syndicate for this public health public service spot.
Some call for stronger finical institution regulation, but I don’t think this is what they had in mind. It would seem FNCB is opposed to most forms of wheeled transport, possibly to push all toward car loans and large scale 4/wheeled adult toys. Another sad commentary on the state of the world and the financial services industry, all customers had to request entry to the bank lobby and be buzzed in by staff. I was once not granted entry without the vouchsafe of my wife already inside. But in truth I left my beard a bit scruffier that morning so might have look more unkempt than usual.
Beyond the Ultra™ Brand, the biggest takeaway from this corrugated point-of-purchase promotion is “Gluten Free” as a pet benefit. Not being up to date on Gluten and Celiac Disease warnings for pets, I must take their word for the importance of this diet offering. In this display it is deemed so, so important that even the targeted pet group is downplayed. Step through the gallery of various views and tell me at what point you can determine if this is dog, cat, fish or fowl food.
Aren’t these the cutest Peach Buttocks ever? I’m not sure if better merchandised in Victoria’s Secret with the panties, or a specialty Produce Department. Nice gift too. Retails beware that now there are two reasons for customers pinching these round, ripe bottoms. CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate presentation.
This must be a tough neighborhood in which to host a Rug Doctor® franchise. Not only are Padlocks necessary, but the padlocks themselves are tethered with steel cable. Bad enough when the shampooers are stolen. A real insult when the padlocks are taken too. CLICK the thumbnail for a second look. Look close to see that the locks are, however, embossed with the Rug Doctor name, and careful, may even be LoJack® equipped.
Here local, naturally-raised livestock are promoted by QR Code carrying handout. I must assume the meat is butchered and cut-to-order, but it really doesn’t say specifically. Maybe its delivered naturally too … on the hoof. When promoting like this you might consider pitching any additional benefits. Organically grown and fed? Custom cut and portioned? Fresh wrapped or freezer wrapped? Delivered by appointment as well as available for pickup? Fresh and tender guaranteed (even though aged meat is actually better)? How about side dishes? Boy, I see the possibility for an upscale business here if handled right.
A daring combination, but definitely traffic stopping sign for the 4th of July. “Liquor and Fireworks. What Could Go Wrong?” the street-side promotion reads. But given the litigious state of modern society I would be sure to post a Lawyer-written disclaimer statement prominently inside BOTH store departments. I would also card every patron for age and identity, and maybe even have them sign a statement acknowledging the dangerous mix. A $1 million umbrella policy might be wise too.
If you are a serious “Prepper” … one who prepares for disaster and the Apocalypse … yet have a taste for modern convenient, you surely want to prep with this LED-powered Antique Kerosene Lanterne by Olde Brooklyn. It would light your shelter without betraying your modern bent to nearby tribes or cave-dwelling survivors. CLICK through the gallery to inspect the offering.
