Waiting in line can be the perfect opportunity to convince customers to make a last-minute purchase they may not have considered before. By using displays that keep products at eye-level for consumers heading toward the register, you’re encouraging small-purchases that lead to increased sales. Don’t hesitate to use counter top displays to showcase some of the smaller items you have an offer that night otherwise fly under the radar during the buying experience.
