Since I have used the descriptive term “Brobdingnagian” in these posts, I am now forced to employ the title Lilliputian Extruded Micro Dividers … if only to meet the imperatives of parallel construction in writing. Seen in a small, upscale pharmacy, you can tell the owners take an intense proprietary interest in how their store presents itself. The entire retail area was similarly immaculately faced. These micro dividers did the job and were visually recessive. There are a variety of simple extruded divider designs available. But in my opinion, using adhesive, stick-on dividers reduces flexibility and degrades the shelf finish … if not immediately, then over time and repeated use. Frontrail, front and backrail, and pushpin mount systems allow greater flexibility in changing product and shelf layout. Still I had to admire the clarity and simplicity of this installation. In this case SEARCH “Spice” to see other closely related small product shelf management solutions.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Lilliput is one of two fictional island nations inhabited by races less than six inches high described in Jonathan Swift’s novel Gulliver’s Travels. Brobdingnag is Swift’s fictional land occupied by giants.Now that I have used both terms from Gulliver’s Travels, I will move on to mine terms other famous literature to spice up my writing. Please come back to see how I fare.
