Those were the days when people store the products in go-down with no special arrangements to keep things safe. These go-down was built of straw and husk mixed with soil, to keep the perishable things safe for a long time. If we look at the history of warehouse, the first warehouse was built in the age of Alexander the Great; he has built the warehouse to secure the artifacts he has collected from his expeditions around the world. So this was the short earlier history when life is not so much complicated, while the demand and supply is not at boom.

The solution of storage is industrial shelving

pics_industrial01LIndustrial revolution came in the seventieth century, when supply of the product increased with the increase in demand. The big problem in large scale production is only one, how to arrange the things and how to preserve the things, the manufactured products cannot be placed only on the floor, so the need is the mother of the invention. It was the time when product management is developed in industrial environment so the Industrial Shelving is designed keeping in mind the industrial needs. The shelving is made of steel that can bear the weight of industrial goods. The main objective of designing these shelves is to transfer the things from one corner to another easily. These shelves are reliable as it is made of quality material.

Benefits of industrial shelves

The Industrial racking has made it possible to manage large scale production in a proper manner. Here is no fear of any damage of the product when the products are assorted in industrial racking. It’s only because of this storage facility that the large industrial concern can manufacture the products on large scale and keep it in stock for a long time. If I say that warehouse is the need of large industrial concern it’s not at all wrong. Industry is now flourishing and surviving only for one reason because it has dealt with product storage issues. So we can see big warehouse of market biggies. Product assortment is manged by store keepers as well as machinery is used to place the product on third or fourth storey of industrial shelves. Things can easily be moved and transferred from one place to another. Thus these shelves have given the facility of portability and mobility of the products in and out of the factory. These warehouse shelving has changed the entire system of storage.

Warehouse and the threat of hoarding

ffMany people do not consider that warehouse shelving is important, I agree with them. Industrial shelvesare important only for the large concern which can maintain large warehouses with its large scale production. Well, with the increase in demand I suppose industrial shelving is necessary for large, medium and small manufacturing unit. It has advantages and no disadvantages. Things are kept safe for a long time no damage is occurred. Moreover if proper environment is provided things will never get perished. So the stock of the things always gets ready to be released in the market. Industrial shelving is
necessary to deal with the demand of the good. The allegations that are charged to challenge the importance of the warehouse like hoarding are not inseparable fact. But it happens only in that society where class discrimination is on the top or we can say in capitalist system.

Understanding kids mindset:

sdfsIf we talk about specialized retail, here comes the idea of retail store for kids. A store full of kid’s related accessories is more interesting than a general store. Kids are always a source of constant pleasure. The things related to them are always a source of attraction not only for the parents but also for the young ones who love these innocent creatures. Kid’s retailing is very popular in U.A.E. Imagine a retail store and its
steel shelving filled with toys, sportswear, watches and stationary for kids. Kid swear decorated at mannequins with colorful clothes is enough to catch the attention of a spectator. According to a survey retail stores dealing in baby products are making great profits. Retailers are more interested to have a brief understanding about the needs of the kids instead of their parents. However, here is a huge variety of kid’s brands in the stores.

Retail is all about the interest of the buyers:

dsfRetail store is covering kid’s products ranges from 1 to 12years. In retail store for kid’s various departments can be categorized according to the age group. For instance, sales of garments of the infants between the ages of 0-2 years can be displayed in front display shelving. Children and their parents are taking more interest in designer’s wear. They are more conscious about brands and international brands like angels, baby shop and mother care have just hit the market and making the business of billions in U.A.E. it is estimated that parents are spending $1billion yearly for children designer wear clothing and footwear. It is strongly desired by the parents that their children dress well and look graceful. Specialized retail segment caters all the needs of the each age group of the children. Retailers at emirates has the idea about the needs of children, it is the urge of getting higher that invites each international brand to hit the emirates market.

The biggest achievement of a retail store is the space management. The idea to position a product or a brand into the shelves is a big question mark for a retailer. Space management deal with the space provided to a specific brand as we know the store is designed to provide customer ultimate shopping satisfaction. Spacing should be done on such a level that the products should be accessible and the classification of products should be done according to the demands and needs. The items should be placed in the right direction to be visible to everyone. Space management is important to optimize the selling of the store.

Store layout:

There should be emphasis on routing and accessibility while designing the store layout. The more you focus on how to make the shopping experience an ease for a customer, the more you can come up with a good design. The only objective of designing the store to make shopping arrangement in such a way that all the things you can find in just one place.

Space& shelve management:

Sales display is another important factor to grab the attention of the consumer; if things are displayed into the metal storage shelves in more stylistic way then it would take a minute to decide a customer to buy the product. The sale of a store depends on arranging and assorting the things in a manner that it looks catchy and attractive. It is important to promote the sales of any brand placed into the storage racks. Often it happens, that space for sales display is less and the products are more, so here comes the skill of shelve management. So it helps to maintain and categories the products intended for sale. Shelve management focus on proper utilization of space so that maximum products can be displayed.

Visibility & sales promotion:

The products should be visible, because the customer’s choice depends on the visibility of products. It is the visibility and accessibility of the product that urge a shopper to buy that product. Product visibility is very important for sales and brand promotion. Customer’s needs to be remind again and again as this is the continuous process of repetition and precision. Modern store design urge the people to buy even if shopping is not necessary for them. So products should be placed in
storage racks in orderly manner, in a bulk, invisible from every direction. Store is the point of sale so retailers are finding the ways to engage with their customers by promoting different promotional activities within the store.

Competition among brands:

While planning the shelve management, the main hurdle that come into the way of a retailer is, what brand should be into the front steel shelvings. Here are so many leading brands in the market and retailer has to find out which brand can increase the turnover. Managing the competition between different brands is a work of shelve management. however the discrimination is not here, what is really important for a retailer is to make every product visible, so display management is done in such a way that if a brand has any scheme than then it will be highlighted and if the other brand has nothing to offer it’s prominent feature is highlighted to grab the attention of the consumer. We can observe the huge competition amongst brands, but to give equal space and display to each brand is a work of high skill.
So this is how shelve management and spacing play a very critical role in defining the availability of the products and urging the consumer to buy at the spot.
