With the ease of ordering online, the retail industry has grown two-fold over the past decade. Online shopping currently has over 2 billion shoppers worldwide. For brick-and-mortar stores to compete, they must capture the attention of their customer. 

In order to catch the customer’s eye, displays and pricing must go hand in hand to encourage the shopper to not only see the merchandise but more importantly, buy it. Visual merchandising plans for many stores change monthly and sometimes even weekly. 

Many stores have taken a minimalistic approach with materials that do not take away from displayed products. One such material that has grown in popularity is t-slotted aluminum extrusion.

T-Slot in a Retail Setting

With the constant change in retail, fixtures need to be lightweight yet sturdy enough to hold anything from clothes and shoes to bikes and kayaks. Due to its multiple mounting options and secure connections, t-slot can be relied upon to handle various products on walls, floors, or ceilings. 

T-slot can also be used to mount lighting, frame cash wrap stations, or create shelving for backrooms of inventory. It can also be utilized as an artistic architectural piece or aid with marketing and sales campaigns.

Beyond the Retail Floor

From a small business to a company with a large warehouse, t-slot can help in numerous ways to get products to customers. 

  • Conveyor systems
  • Material handling equipment
  • Shelving for inventory
  • Workstations for packaging

T-slot is also a great way to go mobile with products and display them at shows, festivals, or temporary pop-ups. Enclosures can be easily installed and broken back down with various accessories like panels to showcase a brand and its products for events. 

Increase Foot Traffic with T-Slot

Online success markers for sales and marketing are typically geared towards creating a more engaging presence on their website. For in-store marketing, engaging the customer and increasing foot traffic for higher sales is generally a harder goal to reach. 

By using t-slot, a store can expect a sleek, durable design that looks great and is functional. T-slot can help with increasing foot traffic in multiple ways such as setting up stations for curbside or in-store pickup, or as a hub center to showcase local businesses or craftspersons.

  • Really good quality aluminum i can feel the difference between it and other parts i ordered from china also the measurements was on point
  • I use ALOT of these little anchor faster, every month. My regular vendor was out of stock, and so I found Parco and ordered from them. The fasteners arrived quickly, we're high quality, and they even worked with me on a bulk discounted price. 10/10 in all areas!!
