The Importance of Shopping Baskets and Trolleys in Retail

So, you have your shop merchandise beautifully presented with Apex Display shop fittings and clothes shelves, what next?

Apex Display offers a wide range of shop supplies, so your store is completely ready to welcome customers.

And, among our many products, we recommend retailers selling a wide range of products to always invest in shopping baskets and trolleys.

Why You Need Shopping Baskets


Shopping baskets are essential to your retail success. Retail shoppers want convenience, but no two people shop in the same way or with the same goals. What we do know is that customers love to browse, and carry items of interest with them, which often leads to a sale. Supporting this process is going to lead to more items going through the checkout.

However, there is only so much a customer can carry in their hands. Shopping baskets enable customers to carry more items with ease.

If there are no shopping baskets on hand, then your customers will be forced to make a snap decision on a purchase and may even go elsewhere. What they do buy will come from the small number of items they can carry themselves without a basket.

It should go without saying that not having shopping baskets will impact your bottom line. Even if you’re a smaller retail store, shopping baskets benefit customers by offering them more convenience while they browse and make purchase decisions.

But there is one caveat with shopping baskets: dirty or broken shopping baskets are just as bad as no shopping baskets at all. Ensure that you get new shopping baskets regularly and keep them clean.

While you’re at it, also invest in a shopping basket stand so that they’re easy to see and not left lying around on the floor.

Why You Need Shopping Trolleys


We tend to think shopping trolleys have been around forever, at least as long as the wheel itself, but they were actually invented in the 1930s in the USA for the purpose of increasing sales. Shopping trolleys enable customers to select more items than they would when carrying the basket themselves. As a result, shopping trolleys have become a huge success strategy in just about every business, everywhere.

But like shopping baskets, the physical condition of shopping trolleys matter, because their appearance reflects on the image of your brand and your customers’ overall brand experience.

Regularly investing in new shopping basket trolleys, and taking the time to keep them clean and well presented, is going to pay for itself.

Apex Displays shopping basket trolleys are the perfect solution for any retail or supermarket environment. Each trolley can conveniently hold up to two shopping baskets and improve customer’s shopping experiences in your store.
