Shelving Design Systems takes pride in the variety of retail shelving we offer, as well as the shelving design services that make our installations work. But we’re aware of something else, as well: your product is only half the equation — and not even necessarily the more important half. Viewed in that light, your shelving is important as just one component in your floor plan; the floor plan, in turn, drives the more important part of your retail operation: customer experience.

Take the Plunge into Modern Pharmacy Design

Posted by Robert Walthall on Fri, Feb, 17, 2017 @ 09:00 AM

Modern pharmacy design has come a long way from the traditional beige and white colored, linoleum-floored, fluorescent sterility so common in the big-box stores so prevalent in many American communities. Thanks to a new focus that independent pharmacy owners and managers have adopted, often as a way of helping them stand out from the large chain-store drugstores, pharmacy design has started taking into account the feelings of the customer.

The Importance of Your Pharmacy Shelving Selections

Posted by Robert Walthall on Thu, Feb, 16, 2017 @ 09:00 AM

Pharmacy shelving is one of the most important aspects of any pharmacy design. In the front end of the store it's the shelving and other fixtures that display your merchandise, hopefully to its fullest advantage, and make what you have to offer logically arranged, easily accessible and attractively shown. Nice looking, strategically placed pharmacy shelving throughout your merchandising area can either set the stage for your customers to have an enjoyable and fulfilling shopping experience or misplaced, unattractive shelves can leave them feeling something altogether different.

Properly placed, the gondola shelving used in the center area of the store can guide your customers along a prearranged footpath that allows them to view the maximum number of departments as they make their way from the front entrance to the rear of the store where you've located some of your most popular items and the prescription drop-off counter. These shelves are used to create aisles and can act as temporary, movable walls and even enhance security by allowing staff to easily keep an eye on shoppers.
