Waiting lines are a necessary component of a shopping experience as they lead to final transactions and completed sales. However, retailers and other businesses will often view their queues or waiting lines as wasted floor space. This perception often gets worse with the consideration of adding merchandising displays or other strategic queuing products that threaten to eliminate even more precious space. But there really is no need to sacrifice floor space to build a customer-friendly and profitable queue.
To maximize the effectiveness of your queue while minimizing the required floor space, here are some of our favorite products:
1. Post-top merchandising bowls
This in-queue merchandising product is one of the easiest ways to conveniently display impulse merchandise to your waiting customers. They are compact. They are easy to install. And they do not take up any additional floor space in your queue because they sit right on top of your already installed posts.
Choose from acrylic bowls or wire baskets to best fit your store’s merchandising needs.
2. In-line tables
In-line tables are a sturdy and elegant way to make your customers’ waiting time productive. These sleek tables are designed to fit right between any two posts that already make up your waiting line with little extension outside the queue perimeter. The surface area created allows any necessary paperwork to be filled out before the customer reaches the point of service resulting in increased customer flow and decreased average wait times.
An additional benefit of in-line tables is that they can help keep waiting customers occupied making the perceived wait feel shorter and less burdensome.
3. Post-top signage
Post-top signage is a space-saving extraordinaire that enhances the customer experience by simplifying your queue. Patrons will easily find the queue entrance and effortlessly navigate through the waiting line to the point of transaction.
These strategically designed post-top sign frames accept regular paper media for ease of use. So, choose a swivel or fixed mount. Choose a size. Choose a color. And attach your sign right to your crowd control post for quick and easy queue effectiveness.
4. End cap signage

5. Corner shelves
