Unique Benefits Of Choosing A Metal Display

When it comes to retail displays, there are plenty of options to consider. At Great Northern Instore, we craft a variety of permanent fixture styles, including wood, plastic and wire. Why choose metal? Simply put, we believe each material creates a distinct experience for customers. It’s why we provide a range of solutions — to cater to each business’s needs and style.

Our metal displays offer unique benefits, including:

Metal displays are built to last. In the demanding retail environment, metal withstands the bumps, mops, and shopper traffic, allowing products to shine long-term.

Our metal displays are highly flexible. They can be shipped to retail locations pre-assembled and pre-stocked or disassembled kit-packs based on buyer preferences. Metal displays can also be easily moved in parts and set up in different sections of the store, allowing you to pay attention to shopper insights and adjust your display strategies accordingly. Shelves and hooks can be adjustable, while wheels can be added for portability.

Nothing signals sleek and modern like a metal retail display rack. Reflect a modern or classic brand image effortlessly with the polished look of a metal display.

At Great Northern Instore, we’re committed to creating custom solutions that meet precise needs. No detail is too small when it comes to crafting a winning display. This can be laser engraved logos or a variety of finishes at your disposal – you’ll be able to request a one-of-a-kind metal display that perfectly fulfills your vision.
