3 Ways to Use Wooden Crate Displays in Your Retail Business

Wooden crate displays are a great way for any retail business to show off their merchandise. They are sturdy and can be arranged in a myriad of different ways to evoke just the right visual appeal for your customers.

Seasonal Displays

Wooden crates evoke a feeling of autumn. Perhaps we have a cultural memory of the days when the fall harvest was collected and every barn was full of wooden crates overflowing with pumpkins, squash, apples, peaches, wheat, or colorful mums. Autumn is when we celebrate the abundant feasts of Halloween and Thanksgiving, too.

Any kind of retail business can take advantage of these seasonal symbols to create beautiful fall displays using wooden crates. Grocery stores can display fall fruits and vegetables, florists can display late blooming plants and flowers. Clothing stores can arrange back-to-school displays of sweaters, jeans, jackets, and shoes by folding some items and draping others over the top of the crate. Even candy stores can display candy in the darker, richer colors of autumn and as gifts for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations.

Evoking a Country Flavor

Every business enjoys the homey, welcoming look that wooden crates give it. Even in the most sophisticated stores, sleek plastic makes room for warm, lived in wood. There’s just something about wood, especially in the form of wooden crate displays, that makes the customer feel they belong in the space you’ve created. A space filled with wooden crates, even arranged in the most artful displays, is a space where you can relax, take your time, and be comfortable.

Creating a Time Warp

Some retail stores go so far as to make this rustic look their entire decorative theme. The country store look appeals to customers who enjoy the way it evokes a bygone age, when things were less sophisticated but more comfortable, and the merchandise that fills the wood crates helps maintain that feeling. In fact, many of these country-themed stores are deliberately modeled after old-fashioned general stores, with wood floors, wood crates, and unvarnished shelves and countertops. If that’s the kind of atmosphere you want to create for your customers, these simple wooden boxes go a long way to do that.

It’s amazing how the simple choice of display container can evoke so many positive emotions in your customers. Wood boxes, wood crates, and other wood containers make people feel so welcomed and comfortable that they’ll be glad to return the gift by buying the goods you’ve displayed.
