Enhance Your Shopper's Journey with Innovative Merchandising Solutions

When Shoppers Win, You Win.

Craft Your Business Narrative

At the end of the day, you want your business to tell a story about who you are, what you stand for, and what people can expect from you. Consumers crave this narrative – they want to understand and assign meaning to the places they shop. This is where storytelling comes in.

To best tell your story, Structural Concepts can help ensure that all elements of your fresh food and chilled beverage merchandising schematics, planograms, and merchandiser shelf-space plans make sense as part of a complete visual narrative. 

Drive Sales with Strategic Product Placement

Product placement is a visual merchandising technique in which products are placed thoughtfully throughout a store in an effort to draw attention to them so that, ultimately, customers will be more likely to purchase them.  

Behind building the most innovative, energy-saving merchandisers with the shortest lead times in the industry, our goal has been to continually help our customers capture the attention of their shoppers, connect with them through the presentation of the fresh food displayed inside, and convince them to purchase.

Connect with Consumers Through Expert Displays and Visual Merchandising

By creating a showplace where your products will be seen, heard, and valued by your shoppers, our displays and visual merchandising expertise entice, excite, and enhance the buying experience resulting in driving more unplanned and incremental purchases and increased basket sizes. 

Connecting with consumers across categories such as deli, bakery, cheese, meat & seafood, and produce within every market channel where fresh food is sold, we can help you create a distinct selling environment that is flawlessly executed, both seamlessly and consistently.

Implement Best Practices For Strategic Product Placement

Cross merchandise with complementary items by putting commonly bought goods in the same area increases the likelihood that shoppers will purchase multiple products.

Encourage more high-end purchases by having more expensive items on levels where the shoppers are most likely to see them and less expensive options below or above their line of sight.

Display impulse-buy products around your cash wrap as customers are likely to grab without much thought.  This will keep people shopping and promote more units per transaction.

Optimize Sales And Customer Engagement

Highlight best sellers to draw customers in and then place slower sellers in their vicinity to boost visibility.

Avoiding unused space will also help keep your customers visually interested.  The more you can maximize your customer’s exposure to your products, the more likely they are to find something they want, and ultimately, make a purchase.

Entice customers to enter your store by placing key products near your entrance, and then force them to move through your entire space and see all that you have to offer by putting additional best-selling items toward the rear.
