Cosmetics. In 2015, the UK cosmetics industry was valued at £17b and ranges include everything from high-end to organic brands, fun ranges and men’s products. There are a range of Slatwall shelves that can be used. Shelves with ticket price holders will help support brands and customer communications and specific cosmetic trays will enable retailers to lots of products in a clear and eye-catching way.

Crafting. This is another sector that has seen massive growth in recent years and many ranges are easily introduced into a retailer’s product range. The subject covers lots of products but standard shelves, trays and troughs should offer all the display options needed and Slatwall stationery items can also be useful.
