Concern: Inadequate Backroom Storage for Stores Nationwide

A home goods retailer needed to improve their backroom storage capabilities across their nationwide network of stores. They require a specially designed and tailored solution for each location so that the shelving system fits each unique layout.

The company stores seasonal inventory of home décor and accessories. With the rotating inventory, they require a backroom storage system that can accommodate stock with a wide array of shapes and dimensions.

The company was purchasing standard rivet shelving in bulk and putting it into the stores’ backrooms without considering the unique characteristics of each room and products. Because of this they were experiencing the following issues:

  1. They were not able to fully utilize the space available in their backroom due to standard shelving units not filling certain areas, creating unused space.
  2. They were not fitting as many products as they could within each shelving unit due to not tailoring the spacing between shelf levels to the various sized products. This resulted in unused space between shelf levels, particularly on shelf levels storing smaller products.Backroom rivet shelving
