Let’s Get Started

One of the easiest ways to gain attention in a retail environment is to create eye-catching displays that draw in customers and entice them to purchase your products. Our team at Great Northern Instore has nearly 60 years of experience creating custom displays for businesses like yours across a wide range of industries.

Together, we can create semi-permanent display structures that increase your brand presence and sell more products.

A semi-permanent retail display lasts longer than a temporary display, withstanding the busy retail environment for anywhere up to a year, the sweet spot is typically between two and nine months in store. These displays are robust and well-constructed, using temporary, durable materials like corrugated cardboard, vacuum-formed plastics and acrylics.  Some metal or wood can be included to augment the look or provide further structural integrity. Our engineering team consists of experts that can tailor a retail solution that will meet your retail demands.

Semi-permanent displays offer a mid-length tool for displaying your products in a retail setting and drawing in shoppers. These displays last longer than the standard temporary display but do not last for years like permanent options made of wood and metal.

Like temporary and permanent displays, semi-permanent displays are a powerful tool for breaking from the norm and grabbing the attention of passing customers. These bold, attention grabbing displays let you launch a new product, promote specials or even create seasonal spreads.

There are countless benefits to choosing a custom semi-permanent display, including:

Our semi-permanent displays consist of robust materials offering a high-end finish — perfect for all brands. We will design your display to reflect your company’s messaging and values, increasing your brand presence and appealing to a wide range of customers. Displays are excellent tools for encouraging impulse buys from consumers who were not planning to purchase your products.

When your marketing campaign ends, your semi-permanent displays will be easy to redress and move around to prepare for the next product or promotion.

The seamless process begins with our 80+ designers and engineers, who work with you to create stunning displays that align with your brand and entice shoppers. Once our design is established, our world-class manufacturing team produces and packages the displays.
