Register Stand Saves Retailers Space

Jun 1, 2007

One of the biggest problems for most independent retailers is space, or more accurately, the lack of it. As a result, many are abandoning the large store counters of the past for simpler, smaller space saving cash register stands instead.

Cash register stands give retailers the professional presence of a traditional checkout counter, without taking excessive space that could better be used to display additional products or allow for more free flowing in-store traffic. Most cash register stands have a flat front with shelving in the back where retailers still have space to store essentials.

"For some retailers, it is important to have a large and long countertop checkout area in the front of the store," said Nu-Era's Jim Minard. "But for retailers whose situation has sort of forced them to value space over presence, a cash register stand can be a very valuable consideration."

Minard is the VP of Sales and Marketing for Nu-Era, one of the largest U.S. based providers of retail store fixtures and supplies. The company sells a wide range of retail necessities, including cash register stands, for retailers of all sizes.

According to Minard, cash register stands are also very popular among seasonal retailers, including garden retailers and produce and pumpkin farms across the country. Cash register stands work well in this environment because they are portable, they take up very little space when in use, and they are extremely easy to store.

Minard also suggests that retailers who are short on space look to other areas of their store for solutions as well. There are a number of product display solutions that, if implemented creatively, will allow them to make the most of their available space.

Nu-Era and are services of The Nu-Era Group LLC, the industry leader in store fixtures, supplies, and fulfillment. Nu-Era has been providing its customers with competitively priced quality products with customer oriented service since 1949.
