Complete Your Retail Space With the Right Shop Counters
No shop can really be considered complete without a counter. Whether you want a small, space-saving unit or plan to install a large, grand retail display counter, MGM Baltic will design and make the right one for your shop.
What to Consider When ordering a Shop Counter
There are so many different styles of display counter for shop spaces available – so which one is right for you? Here are some things it’s best to think about before you make your final choice.
• Do you want to display products or not?
• What material would you prefer to use for your checkout counter?
• How much hidden storage space do you actually need inside the unit for staff to use?
• What shape is your counter? Would you like a rectangular counter or perhaps a corner unit or oval?
Placing Your Shop Counter
Of course, your retail counter needs to be in a convenient location, where customers will have no problem finding it. It’s often a good idea to have it beside the door, particularly in smaller shops. Even if you’re placing it considerably further back within the shop, always make sure that it overlooks the store entrance so your staff can easily keep a discreet eye on comings and goings.
Using Shop Counters to Display Products
A shop counter can also provide additional display space, particularly for whim purchases. Go for a glass-fronted display counter if you’re selling items like food products or toys that you want to show off. Small, high-value items, such as electronic goods or batteries, can also be displayed at the counter. Alternatively, choose smooth, light-colored wood if you want to create a modern, minimalist look, with no additional products on display – ideal for clothing shops.
Making the Most of Your Counter
Remember, your unit will have additional, hidden space below the shop counter tops that is only accessible to your staff. Look for one with the right number of shelves for you, to provide a clutter-free space that will be an asset to your organisation.
