Advantages of Using Clothing Racks in Your Store 

If you are a clothing retailer, you need to think carefully about how you display items of clothing in your store. If clothes don’t look attractive on display, people are unlikely to want to buy them. Clothing racks are great for showcasing both men’s and women’s clothing in a way that’s easy for both shopper and shopkeeper, keeping garments looking good and fresh without taking up a great deal of space.

Here are some of the main benefits of garment racks.

They keep stock organised

Racks are an effective way of displaying and segregating stock so that things are easy for shoppers and retailers to find. Items can be arranged according to size, colour, branding, etc. and there are specialised racks available which give you the opportunity to sub-divide items and be more creative with displays.

Racks are at the perfect height for shoppers and they allow customers to slide through whole rows of garments in super-quick time. None of this taking goods from shelves and then having to worry about folding them correctly to return them into place. Another great benefit is that clothing doesn’t get creased so can be sold to the customer as ‘ready-to-wear’.

They are a good use of space

Considering their size, clothes racks can hold a great deal and so are a fantastic way of being economical with the use of space in your store. Even small shop spaces can usually hold at least half a dozen or so good-sized racks, so even small traders and market traders can have a lot of merchandise on display in a small area. The racks are sturdy and are designed to withstand ample weight over a long period of time.

They are mobile

Units are easily transportable around the shop, or from one place to another, making them perfect for market traders and stores that change layouts on a regular basis. Racks are lightweight and are easily adjustable, so can be used to hang shirts one minute and then extended to display dresses the next. They are also very easy to assemble and take apart, and the individual parts can be easily packed away and stored if they are not in use for a while or need to be transported.

They save time on store displays

If you operate a busy store, the time it takes to rearrange displays or to replace sold stock can quickly mount up. Clothes racks are very practical in this respect because the stock is very easy to keep tidy and you can be flexible in the amount of clothing displayed on a rack – if a few items on a display sell, you’re not in immediate pressure to replace them, you can just spread the existing garments out until you want to replenish the display.
