Whatever type of retail enterprise you're running, if you've got a brick-and-mortar facility you're going to need some display fixtures to show off your wares. The type of shelving and fixtures you decide to employ will say a great deal about your store's purpose and merchandising philosophy and some real thought and consideration about the design, placement and installation of your store's display fixtures should be accomplished up front during any building or remodeling project.
