Custom Extrusion for Point of Purchase Displays

Grocery stores and other retail locations use extruded plastic rail strips, display channels, and price tag holders to convey product and pricing information to customers around the world. When it comes to selling products, retailers know there’s a lot more involved with creating a product display that gets noticed, well beyond putting products on shelves and writing out prices.

Creating an effective and appealing point of purchase display begins long before the retail stocker is called to duty. To build a plastic purchase display you can reach out to a custom plastic extrusion manufacturer to create a product that is done to your exact specifications.

Custom Point of Purchase Displays

When the average person considers a point of purchase display, a few fundamental components are likely to jump out: the products on display, their placement, and of course, prices. However, forward-thinking retailers understand the psychological impact of a well-placed modern-looking product display.

They also understand the negative impact of when a consumer sees displays with rusted sign poles, faded price tag holders, and worn shelf edging. Research shows that this perception is likely to sway customer behavior in 29% of shoppers, with another 14% deciding never to return to an unclean store.‌ Customers much prefer shopping in retail locations that feel modern and well-maintained.

Customers Appreciate Attention to Detail With Plastic Point of Purchase Displays

Consumers respond more positively to a display that includes clean, bright, streamlined rail strips, whether they actively notice these details or not. It’s the little things that make the difference between quality displays that withstand many thousands of customer interactions and those that detract from the overall aesthetic in a retail location.

Take, for example, the rail strips running along the bottom of a typical dry-goods grocery shelf. A faded, ragged rail strip can contribute to an overall vibe that the store is on the decline. In a word, it’s all about standards.

Creating a Quality Plastic Retail Display

It’s easy to overlook the individual components that come together to form a quality retail display. Often, retailers pick the cheapest options. After all, the main functions of any retail display are to provide a place to organize products and communicate price point information to the customer.

Why bother upgrading older shelving when it still gets the job done? Cheaply produced components, including poorly crafted display legs and non-uniform components like shelf strips, sign poles, and banner holders contribute to an unprofessional retail environment that is unlikely to stand up to sustained wear and tear. When retailers have to replace displays sooner than planned, return on investment (ROI) takes a big hit.

As retail displays begin to deteriorate, there’s also the question of how many customers will opt to shop elsewhere or purchase fewer items than they might have in a store that feels cleaner and well-managed.
