What are Shop Fixtures and Fittings?

10th October 2017   |   Knowhow

Shop fixtures and fittings come, quite literally, in all shapes and sizes.  From retail display units through to cabinets, clothes rails, retail shelving and merchandise stands through to euro hooks and even retail furniture… the list is almost endless; as is the potential construction and finishes available to your shop fixtures and fittings.

Quite often we manufacture shop fixtures and fittings using mild steel which is often then powder coated in-house at JC Metalworks.  However, we could also be manufacturing shop fixtures and fittings from brushed stainless steel and lacquering it for a really prestigious and eye-catching finish.  It really is up to what the client wants at the end of the day, what their brand looks and feels like and the available budget.  It is worth remembering that in today’s competitive retail marketplace ensuring you entice your customer with interesting display designs without hampering the actual shopping experience, whilst having shop fixtures and fittings that are durable and do the task that is required of them is a balancing act and one we can help with.

At JC we supply shop fixtures and fittings directly to both retail brands and via a number of agencies who support these brands.  Whichever way we work ultimately it’s all about taking a client’s idea or concept and making it into something that matches that look and concept whilst also being cost-effective and ensuring that it is fit-for-its-intended-purpose.  Shop fixtures and fittings absolutely MUST be structurally sound whilst, yes, adhering to a retail brand’s agreed ‘look and feel’ and giving the end customer something that blends practicality with eye catching design.

Our work can be seen gracing stores the length and breadth of the UK including cosmetic counters and cosmetic stores, high street fashion outlets, shoe and fashion accessories departments and stores, electronic goods and HiFi stores as well as hardware stores.
