1. Use the Suggestive Technique.

Show the items in use. Make a hamper or group items as one set, like displaying together the chopping board, knives and other cookware. This is the micro version of the popular cross merchandising, which is sometimes called add-on sales or incremental purchase.

2. Use Rack or Bin to Suggest Quality and Price.

Normally, customers expect that items in the offer bin have lower prices than those in shelves and showcases. Please take note that it doesn’t mean that when you use the dump bin, you would simply dump, literally, the items into it; consider arranging the products nicely.  Fold the garment properly and maintain the tidiness of the your product display.

Try to put the items which are not so attractive in nature in a classy rack to enhance its visual impact and added value.

3. Maximize the Potential of the Feature Areas

The feature areas in your stores are where  the best place to put you most profitable products. Here are the different feature areas in your store:

  • Endcap. It is the hub at the end of an aisle or gondola especially in grocery stores.
  • Promotional Area. It is the location where promotions are done and promotional items are placed. Some bigger promotions are often located at the atrium of bigger stores.
  • Free Standing Fixtures. It is movable type of fixture which allow you place in a highly traffic area in your store. These are sometimes placed near the entrance of the store to give the featured product a higher visibility and buying potential.
  • Store Window. It is where a beautiful window display seen.
  • Point of Sale (POS) Display. It is found just before the checkout counter. This is sometime referred as Point of Purchase (POP); some custom POS displays are also found around the store.

The above mentioned areas in your store are also called hot spots. The third level, which is straight to eye level, of the shelves and cashier’s point are the good areas to place the items that are usually forgotten, add-ons, less necessary and unbranded products – obviously you don’t need to put rice and sugar in these areas.

4. Vary the Position, Arrangement and Style.
