Merchandising and Fixturing

How to find the right company for your operation

Merchandising and fixturing services are important to all retail store’s operations, choosing the right company requires careful consideration to ensure you find a company that can handle any and all projects you need to complete. The following 5 easy steps will help you choose the right merchandising and fixturing company for your operation:

 

Step 1: Assess Your Merchandising Needs

Start by evaluating your specific requirements for fixturing and merchandising. Consider factors such as the type of products you sell, the size and layout of your store or display area, your budget, and any specific design or branding preferences you have. Having a clear understanding of your needs will help you narrow down your options.

 

Step 2: Research Merchandising Companies

Look for fixturing and merchandising companies that specialize in your industry or have experience working with similar businesses. You can start by searching online directories, asking for recommendations from industry peers, or attending trade shows where these companies may be exhibiting. Take note of companies that have a good reputation, positive customer reviews, and a portfolio that aligns with your needs.

 

Step 3: Evaluate Their Expertise

Once you have identified potential companies, evaluate their expertise and capabilities. Review their portfolio or case studies to see examples of their work. Look for evidence of their ability to create functional and visually appealing fixtures and displays. Consider their knowledge of current merchandising trends and their ability to incorporate your brand identity into their designs.

 

Step 4: Check References and Merchandising Reputation

Before making a final decision, check the references provided by the companies you are considering. Contact previous clients to inquire about their experiences working with the company, including the quality of their work, adherence to deadlines, and overall customer satisfaction. Additionally, research the company’s reputation online, looking for any negative feedback or complaints.

 

Step 5: Communication and Collaboration

Consider the communication and collaboration style of the fixturing and merchandising companies. It’s important to work with a company that listens to your needs, understands your vision, and communicates effectively throughout the project. A collaborative partnership will ensure that your fixtures and displays align with your goals.

The combination of a solid technological platform and experience adds up to a level of efficiency you won’t find in other fixturing and merchandising companies.
