Stay or Fold: When Should You Use Clothes Hangers?

Posted by on 8/13/2018

Calling all clothing retailers! We understand how stressful and confusing it can be when it comes to deciding how to display your merchandise. On the one hand, you want it to be easy for customers to access different sizes and colors of the same item, but also not seem too messy or cluttered. Luckily, the professionals here at Joslin Displays have it all figured out. We have exactly what you need to find that perfect balance, including a variety of shelving and clothes hangers.


Stay: An Analysis of Hanging

Displaying your merchandise using clothes hangers can be an easy way for customers to find what they’re looking for. It’s easier to locate a specific size or color, and it’s pretty easy to put things back in order if it becomes a little disheveled. Additionally, clothes hangers are relatively cheap and can be reused over and over again. Racks - especially those with wheels - are easy to rearrange to accommodate new floor plans or display ideas.


So why wouldn’t you choose to hang your clothes? Well, if you’re limited for square footage, adding racks or clothes can quickly turn your store into a cluttered maze that’s difficult to get through. You want the racks to be spaced out enough for customers to walk through comfortably. Further, you can’t utilize wall space as well with hanging items.


Fold: An Analysis of Using Shelving

Storing and showing products using shelves instead of racks is good when you have a lot of variety in similar products. For example, it’s easy to show 12 different colors of the same style shirt on a rack - you only have to display one and have the rest neatly folded on a nearby shelf. It also allows you to use your space more efficiently by utilizing wall space. You can fit multiple shelves on a wall within arms reach of your customers.


Sometimes, however, they can get a little cluttered. Additionally, if your products are folded, your customers will inevitably unfold it to get a better look, and may not always put it back in perfect condition. This means more time must be spent re-assembling the display to be neat and presentable.


Whatever you choose, we have what you’re looking for. At Joslin Displays, we offer a variety of shelving, racks, and clothes hangers to accommodate any merchandise you wish to show off. For more information, call 800-325-1030 to speak with a display professional!
