What are point of sale shop counters?

Point of sale counters are retail shop counters that can be used as extra sales space as well as serving the functional purpose of being the point where customers pay for goods. The idea of the point of sales counter is to draw customer attention towards products, e.g. new products, special offer merchandise or rare/valuable goods, while they wait to make their purchase. This is an optimal time to grab the attention of customers as they are stood in line and are often looking for a distraction.

Such counters have proved very successful in all kinds of retail environment and are a good way of increasing sales. Counters can be wooden units with space to accommodate small counter displays such as acrylic case displays, glass units with space to display valuable products behind a toughened glass case, or even a combination display. They can be placed anywhere in the store, whether that be right next to the entrance (the first thing customers see as they enter the store) or at the rear of the store (drawing customers deep into the store and exposing them to more products). Goods that can be displayed on point of sale counters range from expensive items such as jewellery, electronic goods and rare books to everyday items such as soft drinks, baked goods and hardware accessories.
