Explore Examples of Our End Cap Displays
Retail end cap displays are generally placed at the end of every aisle. Display heights can be tailored during the design process to ensure they match the size and style guides of the retailer. Three-sided end caps are particularly effective in an end-of-aisle location, as they can catch the attention of shoppers coming from any direction.

Why Use an End Cap Display?
Custom end cap displays are an effective promotional tool due to their location. At the end of each aisle, the end cap helps to draw a shoppers’ attention as they browse the main racetrack, increasing foot traffic to a specific aisle. Effective end cap design and graphics can encourage shoppers to stop and explore various products instead of passing by.
Display signage can promote any current sales and promotions, making the product even more attractive to shoppers. This strategy is particularly effective when you can highlight a seasonal product that has a short-term shelf life and is relevant to the time of year.
End cap displays generally consist of three sections. The top section includes marketing signage and advertises current sales or limited-time-only seasonal offerings. The middle section promotes the product with a messaging or interactive elements that draws the customer in. The bottom section typically merchandising products for the shopper to add to their basket. Pieces can be temporary for short promotions or permanent for year-round brand promotion.
End cap displays provide an easy opportunity to capitalize on impulse buys. Your product will be set apart from others, making it easier to notice. While an entire aisle may be filled with similar products, a retail end cap display will push your specific item to the forefront, compelling consumers to choose it over another. This will drive sales while further increasing your brand visibility.
Types of Products to Display in an End Cap Fixture
End cap displays are highly flexible and can be placed in virtually any type of store. They’re commonly used to promote easy-to-grab items, such as snacks or beverages. Many grocery and supermarket end cap displays feature prepackaged snack items — these displays are so popular because they consistently offer great results.
Custom end cap displays are also used to promote seasonal and holiday-themed products. Replacing your display’s out-of-season merchandise with timely new products can kickstart holiday shopping and encourage consumers to buy limited-time-only items.
Whether your industry manufacturers food, beverages, consumer electronics, health and beauty products or home improvement items, end cap displays can be customized to meet your needs. Keep in mind that items with a broad appeal that are easy to grab will sell particularly well in an end cap display. They’re the perfect vehicle to drive extra velocity of your bestselling. Because of messaging, retail end cap displays are great to introduce new items as well as regimen products, to increase a shopper’s basket size.
