Gondola / Aisle Display Units

In retail, one of the most fundamental and often undervalued factors is spatial arrangement. The overall layout of your premises – and indeed the units that you use to display items – are critical in creating a positive customer journey and driving sales higher.

On this page, we’re going to focus specifically on gondola / aisle display units, and how they can be used to improve the layout of your store, while showcasing your products in a stylish and eye-catching way. Here’s everything you need to know…

What are gondola / aisle displays?

Gondola display units are double-sided shelving displays. These units are exceptionally useful in creating mini islands in your store and also forming new aisles for customers to wander down. These free-standing units are eye-catching and can be used to showcase your products, promote certain items, and all the while attract your customers’ attention.

Gondola Display

Why invest in gondola aisle display units?

So, what’s all the fuss about? Are gondola aisle display units all they’re cracked up to be? The fact is, gondola aisle display units are among the most popular modern retain display and shelving solutions used today.

This is because they can maximise retail space and ensure that every square foot in your premises is put to good use. They’re double-sided units that needn’t be fixed to the floor or walls and can easily be moved around as necessary.

Ideally, gondola units are suitable for retailers that have a lot of different products that they need to display but are looking for an affordable alternative to fixed retail shelving systems.

Gondola units come available in a variety of different styles and functions, including:

  • Slat-wall shelving: the most commonly used gondola display, accommodating shelves for the storage of multiple products.
  • Pegboard shelving: typically used for products that required hang-sell display, such as on pegs and hooks which are easily attached/detached at the central pegboard design.
  • Mesh shelving: mesh shelving gondolas tend to be priced on the lower end and can be used to combine both shelving and accessories such as pegs and hooks.

What are the benefits of having gondola aisle display units in your store?

Now that you have a much clearer understanding of what gondola display units are, what are the other benefits that they can offer you? Let’s take a closer look…

  • Gondola units are perfect for saving space and optimising your store as well as you can. They’re free-standing units that can be used to create aisles in your shop, while saving space with stacked ‘gondola style’ shelving.
  • They are very quick and easy to assemble, saving you money on hiring shop fitters to install tricky wall-mounting fixtures and other complicated units.
  • These units are also exceptionally flexible. Not only can they easily be shifted around the store, but the height and depths of the shelving and display accessories can be customised as well.
  • At UCT Asia, we can provide you with bespoke gondola designs that fit with your branding and the overall desired décor and aesthetic of your store.
  • Similarly, we can design and manufacture bespoke gondola display units to function well in smaller retail stores, or make good use of the ample space available in larger stores.
  • They can be accessorised significantly with hooks and hanging pegs, wire baskets, shelf dividers, LED lights, and more.
  • This is arguably one of the most cost-effective means of display products in your retail store. Not only are quality gondolas affordable to make, but they are low-maintenance and robust, thus providing you with years of retail use.
  • The T-shape design makes the gondola display one of the safest in the retail industry.
  • Effortlessly display product information, prices, and discount promotions by utilising flat data strips, clip-on hanging data strips, and more.

Perfect for pairing products and encouraging multiple purchases

As gondola displays are double sides, they create a brilliant opportunity for you to pair products and display multiple items – that can be purchased in conjunction – in one place. For example, in a home and hardware store, you could have wall fixtures and fittings on one side, and then various wall accessories on the other, such as picture frames and canvasses.
