The Shop and Display Equipment Association has published a new guide to the UK retail display industry – the sdea Directory of Shopfittings and Display 2009/2010. Inside there are innovative and exciting retail display ideas to help you create a really enticing instore environment, that doesn’t cost the earth. Focusing on an individual element that has big impact, such as lighting, graphics or display, can help to keep costs down and sales up! In fact, there has never been a better time to revamp your stores to ensure that you come out on top of the current downturn.
This handbook is a great place to source retail display props, shopfittings and accessories, as well as companies that offer a complete turnkey fitout. You can search for suppliers alphabetically, or by trade name, location, or retail trade and by the particular product or service you are seeking. The Directory also provides company profiles and contact details, plus a Showcase gallery featuring a visual interpretation of many of the retail display products on offer.
More great retail display ideas can be found in the annual review of new store openings. Bristol’s Cabot Circus reveals a number of stunning new stores to give readers inspiration. Rituals’ sultry UK launch is reviewed along with Guess’s bold linear look, Azendi’s revolutionary jewellery store and Cult’s incredible subterranean paradise. And no review of UK retail openings over the last 12 months would be complete without a visit to Westfield in London where Australian retailer Ugg launches its first UK store, Timberland creates a mighty new flagship, Spanish brand Desigual shows its Mediterranean flair and Micro Anvika breaks new ground with a stylish new concept.
