What can be Done with Old Retail Display Cases?One of the biggest challenges with any type of commercial move is the sheer amount of stuff that’s involved. When it comes to retail, particularly traditional stores, all that inventory will have to be relocated and this presents a real logistics problem. The trick is to use one of the same tips you’ll find in residential real estate; and, that is to purge aggressively. What you don’t need now you won’t need in your new location and it’s also easy to hire a business junk removal service to free you up for other things.
In recent years, for most lines of trade, the average store size has increased. This, of course, means greater financial outlay for a good location plus greater investment in inventory, fixtures, and personnel. —Biz Move.comAs far as inventory goes, now is the time to get organized and send back what you can, if you are able. Another suggestion is to put slow-moving items on sale at a substantial discount. After all it’s only going to add more stuff to the move. For those promotional items collecting dust, you can use these to drum-up business at your new location by giving them away with any purchase. Now, it’s time to look at what can be done with old retail display cases:
- Sell them to other businesses. If you are paring down what you’re going to move (for instance, your new location is in a smaller retail space), take the opportunity to offset the cost of the move by selling those retail cases.
- Rent them out on a short-term basis. Another suggestion is to rent your retail display cases out to another business on a short-term basis. For example, if there’s a trade show coming up in the area, you could let the organization know you have display cases for rent.
- Donate them to a charity thrift store. Sometimes, retail display cases are in need of replacement but not in such bad condition as to be discarded. Phone a few charity thrift stores and you’ll probably have one or more eager takers.
- Dismantle and reuse them at the new location. Of course, you can always reuse your retail display cases in your new location. Just dismantle them, be sure to label each part, and then reassemble them when it’s time.
