Clothes Rack / July 28, 2018 / Minette Auberjonois.
Here are a few tips to bear in mind when thinking about your garment rack needs: Reinforce your Brand: If you own a western wear store dont use a rack that looks like it came directly out of an upscale Manhattan boutique. If you own a store that caters to teenagers dont use a traditional garment rack that belongs in their mothers department store. Build to your audience and reinforce your brand. Mind your Space: It is always a difficult line to walk between the space you have available and the products youd like to carry in your store. Carefully selecting your garment racks for the layout of your store may free up some room you didnt even know you had available.
Department stores use them discount chain stores use them and second hand venues use them. It is the perfect way to display clothing so that consumers can easily rifle through them and make their purchases. In retail outlets you will see a couple of different styles of these items. There are straight types that usually have a single metal bar that are supported by two edge bases. The hangers that hold the clothing simply hook on to the metal bar and sit side by side. These are the least complex systems. There are systems that are curved and the bar is graduated upwards this makes for a much cleaner display system. The same single bar system is in place but the bar is curved and may have dividers that are a few inches tall that will divide the hanging clothing.
Stay Consistent: Wherever possible try to consistently use garment racks that look similar to one another with regards to material colors and finishes. Consistency makes for seamless flow from rack to rack throughout the store. Every household needs to wash and dry clothes. Drying clothes at times can be a more difficult chore than washing. This is more so when drying space is scarce. Outdoor clotheslines are fine and practical for drying clothes; however it is difficult to dry clothes outdoors when it is raining. Drying clothes becomes even more difficult during the winter months. Traditional outdoor clotheslines have their own limitations as clothes may be over exposed to sun pollution or allergens.
A clothes rail is also easy to move around. All fashion industry pros use these transportable rails because they need to be able to move at a moments notice. Coasters allow the rail to become a readily portable closet that can be repositioned from one place to another. Clothing racks can also help save space. There are some models with expandable horizontal bars that you can lengthen or shorten depending on how many clothes you plan to hang. This way you can save a lot of space if you only need to hang a few pieces of clothing. If you have a store or shop which requires storage of clothing or fabric a cloth rail is an equipment which can be an indispensable part of your business.
