Neatly organized in a black, corrugate counter display, several different arrangements were merchandised in a vacuum formed inner tray. A magnetized section on the riser allowed retailers to adhere one of the products to it so shoppers could test the strength of the magnet and see how it works.

FYLO Makes Special Appearance At Costco
FYLO Clothes are perfect for on-the-go women who are not willing to kick their passion for fashion to the curb. FYLO recently made an appearance on the Costco special events schedule with this fixture-like pallet display. The back-to-back unit merchandised luxury scarves on one side and blouses on the other.
Unique to the club store environment, the sturdy display employed a combination of materials. Corrugate bases were printed with life shot models and how-to-use diagrams on the end panels. Plastic tubing formed upright supports that displayed the scarves and blouses. A large, four-sided, fabric FYLO Special Events banner sign captured shoppers attention from across the aisles.
Allegra Slides Onto Walmart End Caps
Chattem, manufacturer of Allegra, recently made an appearance at Walmart with this nifty end cap display. Designed to accommodate 30″ or 36″ shelf widths, the display arrived at retail with an expandable panel on the right side that could be slid outward to fill up a 36″ shelf width. Great graphics and discount coupons made this display a real stand-out in store.
Whiskey Hollow Adds Flavor On-Shelf
Exclusively sold at Walmart, Whiskey Hollow is separating themselves from the crowded canned bean offerings with this die cut aisle violator. Available in 3 flavors, Whiskey Hollow beans are soaked in alcohol, which gives them a unique marketing advantage, not to mention a bold, rich flavor.
The aisle violator was designed in the shape of a whiskey barrel complete with a spout pouring spirits onto a bowl of beans. Very inviting and definitely noticeable in the category.
Not All Bandages Are The Same
Since being acquired by Medline in 2007, the CURAD brand has been re-energized – introducing many innovative solutions for a broad range of health concerns. Last summer, CURAD introduced their Truly Ouchless, flex line of bandages. The brand has taken this line to a new level with the new Truly Ouchless plastic, making the bandages even easier to secure after you’ve taken a peek at healing wounds.
To break out of the clutter and promote their new variant, CURAD launched this inline shelf display. Die cut, in-use life shots sandwiched a curved copy panel that supported several variants of their new product line. With the exception of an aisle violator or two, the bandages category is typically stagnant from a marketing perspective, which makes this display a real breakthrough.
