Gondola shelving is double sided shop shelving which is used in the centre of the shop to form aisles.
Often at the end of the gondola shelving is a promo end bay that is used to create a neat finish and provide an area for special offers and promotions. Gondola shop shelving can be laid out to guide your customers through the shop in a pre-designed route to ensure they pass the best selling products. This kind of shelving configuration is often used in pound shops so that on entering the store customers must take a longer route to the products they are looking for, in order to promote impulse buys.
The height of the gondola units should be determined by a number of factors such as security, lower units can improve surveillance, taller units can display more products and achieve a larger product range. The depth of the shelves should be selected depending on the product requirements, ie large products or the size of the shop it might be the case that using shallower shelf sizes will enable an additional row of gondolas to fit in the shop. Gondola shelving is available also with perforated pegboard back panels or slatted back panels.
