Ideas For Displaying Merchandise With Plastic Containers

As a storeowner, you know you need to purchase wholesale plastic containers to display your merchandise. What you might not know – or might not fully understand – is exactly how these containers can help your business. You can use these containers to create attractive, convenient displays in a number of locations throughout your store.

Create a Counter Top Display

Because they’re available in a wide array of shapes and sizes, plastic containers are great for creating counter top displays. You can use one or two by themselves to hold small pieces of candy or gumballs, or you can set several atop a wire display rack to showcase numerous kinds of merchandise.

Displaying merchandise on your store’s counter top is also a great way to:

  • Keep the items within your view. Merchandise in acrylic containers is usually small, and having it on your counter top and near your register discourages thieves. You can also purchase canisters with lids to add extra protection for merchandise.
  • Up-sell. The kinds of merchandise store’s keep in these counter top displays are usually the kinds of products nearly everyone likes and can use (think candy and gum, or convenience items like travel-sized shampoos and conditioners), but not items each customer always thinks about when he or she enters the store. Keeping these items near the register puts them in the customer’s view as he or she is checking out.

Display Extras Near Your Store’s Deli Area

If your store includes a deli area, you can use square plastic containers to hold extra edible items like condiments and seasonings, or non-edible items like straws, cup lids, napkins, hand wipes, and utensils. It’s best to choose square plastic containers for these purposes as they offer your customers easy accessibility.

Showcase Merchandise In Your Store’s Aisles

Your store’s aisles are undoubtedly equipped with shelves; however, you can situate wire display racks on opposite ends of the aisles that feature plastic containers full of additional items. Maybe you’d like to display candy throughout the store, or perhaps you’d like a better way of organizing the smaller convenience items such as lighters, combs, and key chains. Plastic containers on convenience store racks are great for all these ideas.

Keep in mind that you can also find acrylic dry food dispensers designed to mount to your store’s walls or the aisle’s shelves. If your store sells dry food items like cereal and coffee, these dispensers will work well for you. You can also use them to display small candy items!

Greet Customers at the Entryways

Because placing merchandise near your store’s entryway and making sure it stays safe can get tricky, gumball machines are your best bet. These tools have come a long way since the days of the classic single head gumball machines; these days, you can find machines with as many as six or eight heads. You can even order these machines already stocked with gumballs!

If you’d prefer to use traditional acrylic containers near your store’s entryway, make sure you select large plastic containers that can hold sizeable items. You might even want to look into canisters with lids. And remember: Placing these containers on convenience store racks is a great way to create an attractive, organized, and convenient display.
