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 iPhone Stands Get A Good Reception

Displaysense has announced a large rise in sales of their book holders and literature stands since Apple launched their new flagship products; the iPhone 4 and the iPad.

Able to comfortably and securely hold the units for display, storage or playback purposes, the Displaysense range of literature holders and book holders are now being used by some customers as accessories for their favourite Apple products.

It appears customers have been turning to Displaysense, the UKs leading supplier ofdisplay stands and coat hangers, in reaction to the high prices that other companies have been charging for similar products that have been marketed specifically for the Apple devices.

An acrylic book stand can cost as little as £2.47 from Displaysense whereas consumers could be looking at shelling out up to £40 for an apparently bespoke bit of kit which achieves the same results.

Displaysense Reports The High Street Is Struggling As Increased Demand By Stores For 90 Per Cent Off Sales Banners Leads To Stocks Running Out In Late October

As the recession strikes and tightens its grips on British high streets, Displaysense report a worrying time ahead for retailers, with shops going to extreme lengths to encourage customers to part with their cash. The result of some stores taking up to 90% off of their prices has lead to stocks of certain sales banners running out.

The move towards massive sales which reveals the desperation of some high street stores, comes at a time when spending is usually on the increase as a result of consumers flocking to the streets for Christmas related gift ideas. Displaysense, a supplier of sale banners and display stands, is one such company that has been overwhelmed with orders for their sale product range, highlighting that the panic surrounding this Christmas sales period is leading retailers into unchartered territory.

Displaysense has been selling sale related banners and signs as well as other retail supportive products such as display cabinets for some years now, but has suddenly noticed a sharp increase in the demand for their 70%, 80% and 90% off sale banners, so much so that they sold out in October. Good news for Displaysense that they are meeting their audiences needs for products but worrying for the wider economy.

The retail display company is attempting to restock the items as soon as possible but feel that the demand for these sale banners will continue into the New Year alongside the overwhelming amount of orders received for their new range of sale related products.

Steve Whittle the marketing manager of Displaysense commented on this startling high street move by saying, “It’s a worrying trend for the economy in this run up to Christmas and the high street stores are really taking a big gamble”. He continued,”Normally this is the time of year for stores to hold their nerve on their pricing but it looks as if some have shown their cards early and we’ve noticed a great deal of shops with literature holders displaying major discounts”.

Not only are some of the stores taking up to 90% off their prices to encourage Christmas sales, but some are already beginning to revamp their look for 2009 as Displaysense highlight an increase in sales of their shop fittings such as their range of display cases. With the economy not set to recover for some time, a store with a unique look just might have what it takes to prosper in the forthcoming year.

With a tough 2009 predicted, Displaysense is preparing for the tough times ahead for retailers and has already tripled the stock of their ‘buy one get one free’ sale signs but hope they don’t sell any ‘closing down’ signs .
