Retail Display Ideas: Bulk Foods
Now more than ever, bulk foods are becoming a vital part of grocery stores. They have many benefits, including but not limited to increasing your profit margins and reducing your carbon footprint. For customers, they have the opportunity to buy more under the perception of saving more, all the while protecting the environment by reducing the amount of packaging. There are different methods of going about it in terms of design. Thankfully, you don’t have to fuss over the design details, thanks to DGS Retail’s complete displays. Available in a variety of configurations and sizes, these displays can help you create entirely new sections in the store or build on current ones. You can also use them in different roles. Let’s go over some of the potential roles bulk food displays can have based on what we sell:
Complete Dry Foods Aisle
If you haven’t already added a new bulk foods section, now may be a good time to do so. A full section or aisle of dry foods can cover many of your customers needs. At 12-24 feet, you can easily sell more than a hundred different items in bulk. You can do a lot with that many, so feel free to have a few specialties in mind. For example, you can have a set of gravity bins dedicated to different dry beans and legumes, while the scoop bins below sell varieties of rice and flour. Another set of gravity dispensers can be used to supply nuts, yet another coffee beans. The scoop bins below can focus on candy, breakfast cereals, and more.
Expanding a Current Aisle
Of course, if you already have a dry foods section, then these displays may offer an opportunity to expand upon a current aisle. You can use this opportunity to specialize in areas of dry foods you haven’t touched. One particular field that isn’t too common is spices. People need seasoning in their foods, whether as part of a recipe, to liven up a meal, or even for preserving items. Adding a bulk spices section makes it easy for them to stock up on these items. Moreover, because they are relatively low cost and people tend to buy in larger quantities than the small pre-packaged jars, you will be able to see larger profit margins as a result.
Specialty Sections (Ice Cream Topping Dispensers, Snack Dispensers and More)
Not every display has to be a large chunk of aisle or wall space. You can also have small islands that are dedicated to specific uses. For example, if you offer soft-serve ice cream, you can have an end-cap displays that offer a selection of toppings that customers can place on top. You can convert that to an island display that also serves candy, since it goes well with ice cream.
Another example is utilizing them as snack dispensers. A small island or end-cap display could function as a snack mix station. Customers can add pretzels, nuts and wasabi peas to create the perfect bag, while you see a bigger profit margin. Of course, alongside those nuts, you can also have a nut butter grinder to create peanut butter and other spreads.There are many possibilities when you think small.
