Baskets are attractive ways to display large quantities of
products. Retailers use basket style containers to hold fruit, produce, wrapped
candy, small toys, stuffed animals, and accessories. Before opening a retail shop
, explore the
available basket displays and select a few to create an attractive selling
floor. Natural, stained, or painted wooden baskets hold assorted products and
look more professional than crates or cartons.
Floor and countertop natural basket displays come in a
variety of sizes. A wooden rack system featuring 15 ½-peck baskets is an
attractive way to display candy, craft items, bars of handmade soap, or
designer lotion. Caster wheels make this rack mobile so retailers can change
the sales floor layout on a whim. Natural baskets create a casual look, perfect
for a spa or a retail store in a resort area.
Shallow basket displays are suitable for countertop use and
some versions come in a rainbow of colors. Customers cannot help but notice fuchsia
or ocean blue baskets in an attractive countertop display. The baskets are made
from the wood of the sugargum tree and are moisture-free, making them durable
and insusceptible to mold or mildew. These displays will last for many years,
allowing retailers to recoup their investment many times over.
A spinning rack of ¼-peck baskets is functional and fun,
especially when it comes filled with 40 pounds of taffy. Dozens of basket
colors are available, making this fixture even more impressive. Retailers
select eight taffy flavors from a list that includes Neapolitan, caramel apple,
cran-raspberry, and watermelon. Customers will spin this rack round and round
to select their favorite taffy flavors. When the baskets are empty, retailers
can refill them with more taffy or use the display to hold other items.
Bakeshop owners can use three-tier wicker basket displays to showcase loaves of bread and packages of
muffins, danishes, and cookies. Available rack colors include cherry, black,
hunter green, oak stain, natural, weatherwood, and early American. The
five-inch deep oak baskets are attractive and timeless, creating a display that
will always be in style.
To display a single item, retailers can choose a low-priced
sloping bushel basket displayed in an attractive wooden stand. When this is
placed near the checkout area or at the head of an aisle, whatever it contains
will become the most popular item in the store. Wooden baskets are economical,
appealing, and very effective alternatives to traditional retail displays.
