What Are the Benefits of PDQ Displays?

PDQs displays make it as convenient as possible for customers to grab packaged items on the go. A better shopping experience results in increased sales. Customers easily remove an item off the shelf without disrupting the merchandise. Other benefits include:

  • Efficient restocking: Retail-ready packaging offers a massive advantage of efficient shelf restocking. The products move from the shipping box directly onto your floor or shelf with easy assembly. This speedy transition reduces labor costs and moves products into customers’ hands faster.
  • Targeted buyers: Counter displays offer a sense of urgency at checkout. The limited decision time while in line or scanning items makes shoppers more likely to buy an item on impulse. Organized and well-presented arrangements of grab-and-go products do well in this retail environment.
  • Customizable designs: Point-of-purchase product shelves come in many different formats. Personalize eye-catching trays to reflect your brand’s colors, language and imaging. Functional and aesthetic options offer creative choices in your marketing strategy.
