Pimped-Out Chrome S-Hook

Talk about excellence in fit-and-finish. This pimped-out S-hook features impeccable chrome plating and ball-end finials as the final point-of-purchase finishing touch. Ball-end tips are common on Display and Scan Hooks for added safety over Straight-cut Wire Hooks. But there is little hazard in an S-hook, so this is all finishing to upgrade the final fixture…

No Bike Riding In Store

It must have been a bicycle Flash Mob that drove this store to create a quick handmade sign banning bikes in-store. I don’t think I have ever seen a retailer so afflicted with two-wheelers, except maybe my old mountain bike shop. CLICK the thumbnail for an outside entry overview, including cute little girl hiding from…

Conjoined S-Hook Is Hump-Back

If you need more capacity than an ordinary S-hook, maybe this conjoined, hump-back hook is the solution. With this S-hook … in this case meaning Siamese Hook … you can separately face Strip Merchandisers up and down the aisle.   It still works with only one Strip Merchandiser, even if hump-backed it looks a bit odd.…

Positioned directly with automobile oil, an oft forgotten or overlooked aspect of getting oil in the engine filler hole is put front and center. Even though most engine oil packages are designed to facilitate a neat pour, many cramped engine compartments still demand a funnel. Curiously there…

Sasquatch vs Slim Jim

Single-lane marketing by Slim Jim drew interesting response in earlier retail fixture forums, both positive and negative. But here what is good enough for Slim Jim is good enough for Sasquatch too. And the products slug it out as longer “Big Stick” goes up against “Twin Pack,” but with Sasquatch supported by a television ad…

Country-of-Origin Shelf ID

Unless I just fail to notice, I do not see country of origin consistently across produce displays. If it is consistent, maybe it is just not prominent. A good reason for FixturesCloseUp to record those locations where origin is thought important and communicated. Like here via tag in the Shelf Edge Label Strip. CLICK the…
