What Makes a Temporary Retail Display?

Temporary retail displays are sturdy product displays for short-term use in a retail environment. They consist of lightweight materials like corrugated cardboard, foam and chipboard.

Though intended for short-term use, our temporary displays can withstand the rigors of a busy retail space, presenting your brand in the best light.

Why Choose Temporary Display Structures

Custom-designed temporary retail displays are an impactful way to boost your sales and brand recognition. For example, temporary point of purchase displays in high-traffic retail areas gain tons of exposure and take advantage of shoppers’ inclination toward impulse purchases.

Temporary displays offer many distinct brand benefits, including:

At Great Northern Instore, we design each temporary display from scratch to meet your needs. We offer an endless range of sizes, shapes and designs — plus various printing options. Our team can help you create bright, fun displays that catch every shopper’s eyes and entice them to purchase your products…whether on pegs, on shelves, or in dump bins.

We can ship your display flat for the lowest freight costs, or we can prepackage and assemble it to ensure simple retail execution and begin driving your sales as soon as possible.

Many temporary displays consist of lightweight materials like corrugated cardboard. These materials make temporary displays easy to move around and less expensive to build and ship to retail locations. When your campaign has ended, retailers can recycle the displays and minimize environmental impact.

How Temporary Displays Help Keep Things Fresh

Temporary displays can be a powerful tool for gaining shoppers’ attention with short-term marketing campaigns. Create seasonal displays and exciting sales and promotions, or easily draw attention to a new product by placing temporary displays in high-traffic areas.

These displays are a cost-effective marketing option you can utilize frequently, move around the store and maintain appeal with, drawing people’s eyes with new designs and campaigns. Shoppers are more likely to gravitate toward an exciting new display they have not seen before.

Regardless of your marketing strategy, temporary displays are an effective way to attract customers and encourage more sales.

other available display types:

Great Northern Instore offers an expansive list of display types. Each type offers a unique benefit to brands who want to draw customers to their products. Custom retail floor displays showcase hot-off-the-press items, while retail signage directs customers to where your products are merchandised. Other types like end caps can be strategically designed to highlight a seasonal product and enhance your brand awareness.
