Displaysense Glimpses A Different Cost Of The Economic Climate

Displaysense has revealed that throughout the recession and continuing into the gradual economic recovery, a rise in crime targeting retail and fashion retailers has been seen. This is the conclusion reached by the company after speaking to its customers and reviewing its sales figures since the recognised start of the downturn in the winter of 2008.

Displaysense, leading suppliers of clothes hangers and clothes steamers has reportedly seen unexpected and continuing growth in parts of their business that seem to back up reports from several customers who cite theft of display units as the motivation behind their purchase.

A 27% rise in demand for individual components for display stands rather than full units could be interpreted in a number of ways to counter the companies assertion that retail and fashion stores have been targeted for their displays by thieves.

However, last year, Reuters reported that the global economic crisis might not only fuel a rise in crime but also seriously hinder police operations to combat the increase due to sweeping government cut backs. Sociologists indicate that crime has increased during every recession since the late 1950s – a clear sign that people can be persuaded to break the law when they’re desperate.

It is directly via their consumers that the Displaysense draws much of its evidence, and being one of the biggest names in the display industry, the Hertfordshire company is well placed to make such claims. It reports that it is seeing an increase in incidents of its customers becoming victims of thieves that appear to be targeting specific display items. These include stolen wheels from mobile clothes rails, particular parts of mannequins such as the hands and even shelves from wall displays.

Displaysense Aims To Arm Small Businesses Against Government Cutbacks

Displaysense has announced that it is supplying a new range of affordable clothes streamers to assist independent fashion retailers in the wake of the latest round of government cutback for small and medium enterprises (SME).

As the government starts to squeeze spending across the nation’s services and industries, the initial optimism of a rosy post-recession economy has started to once again take on a dreary, grey outlook of austere, frugal consumer spending that could threaten the existence of smaller businesses.

Displaysense has taken steps to help these independent stores by offering a range of cost effective products that help promote retailers merchandise without breaking the bank. The flagship product range of this new drive is a selection of garment steamers from Fridja.

Coming in at under £100, these brightly coloured, user friendly clothes steamers are proving a big success with those looking for all of the benefits of a high capacity steamer without having to remortgage their house or sell a kidney on the black market. Already securing interest across the fashion industry, the Fidja steamers represent the opening salvo of a counter attack mentality that Displaysense are mounting on the severe spending cuts imposed on the country.

Continuing to source high quality, low cost products is a top priority for the UK based display company who believe that businesses should be able to look their best no matter how tight the margins. Designed to be a much quicker and cleaner alternative to traditional ironing practices, these low cost, high performing steamers from Fridja are already being championed by major brands such as Pepe and Sienna Millers Twenty8Twelve thanks to their eye catching colours and user friendly design that allows clothes to be steamed whilst still on their coat hangers.
