Category Definition by Aisle InvaderAn intrusive and effective way to define Categories and subcategories of merchandises are sign systems that project into the aisle and interrupt the view. Like thumb tabs on a book or binder they allow shoppers to visually page through thousands of offerings more quickly to focus on their products of interest. Standing alone such perpendicular signs are often Caller Aisle Invaders (a.k.a. Aisle Violators) and can also offer specials or call attention to single items. Being OCPD both personally and professionally, I like their use for Category Definition and Category Management generally. See a variety of examples in the gallery and post links below.

BACKSTORY: Category management is a retailing and purchasing concept in which the range of products purchased by a business organization or sold by a retailer is broken down into discrete groups of similar or related products; these groups are known as product categories (examples of grocery categories might be: tinned fish, washing detergent, toothpastes). It is a systematic, disciplined approach to managing a product category as a strategic business unit.[1] The phrase “category management” was coined by Brian F. Harris. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)
