Great Northern Instore and the Acquisition of United Displaycraft

United Displaycraft - Great Northern Instore

Great Northern Instore is dedicated to helping our clients find innovative ways to engage with customers at the retail level. Our company specializes in the design and distribution of temporary, semi-perm, permanent and interactive solutions. We recently joined forces with United Displaycraft to expand our capabilities. United Displaycraft is a world-class manufacturer of merchandising displays sharing similar goals to ours, which made the acquisition process seamless for both parties.

At Great Northern Instore, we understand how custom displays can make the difference between a one-time shopper and a repeat buyer. Since United Displaycraft was sold in 2017, our expansion has enabled us to step into new territories with wood, wire, metal and other materials for your retail endeavors. More than ever, Great Northern Instore is here to help you transform your customers’ shopping experience.
