Whether it’s a candy store,7 Types of Rotating Racks for Your Countertop Displays Articles hotel, or yogurt shop, nearly every kind of business has a countertop, and each one that does has a need for countertop displays. Of course, with countertop displays come countertop display racks, and many store owners choose to use rotating display racks on their countertops for two reasons:

  1. When the merchandise is located on a countertop, rotating racks offer customers much more convenience. Customers can easily spin the racks to see all the items for sale.
  2. Revolving racks allow store owners to showcase much more merchandise than do fixed position racks with just one side of space for merchandise.

Below are seven of the most common and useful racks you can use for your countertop displays.

The wooden baskets act like buckets and provide ideal amounts of space for merchandise such as small children’s toys, bags of candies or other treats, or convenience items such as eyeglass repair kits, all-in-one tools, lighters, travel-sized manicure sets, and key chains.

Most establishments that use wooden display racks are retail businesses such as convenience stores, candy stores, toy stores, and bookstores, though other kinds of businesses, like hotels and motels, can use wooden racks to create displays on their countertops, too.

Rotating pegboard racks for countertop displays generally come in two varieties: flat racks with two display sides and box-style racks with four display sides. Store owners can display items on pegboard racks using several different kinds of accessories including pegs or “hooks” from which to hang items, pegboard trays, pegboard buckets, and divider bins.

4. Turntable Cereal Dispensers
