IdN v26n1: Visual Merchandising & Window Display
Windows onto a New World of Creativity and Ingenuity
When people say they’re going window-shopping, it usually means to look in a variety of shop windows and get a general idea of what’s on offer. But of course, if they happen to spot something that really takes their fancy, and at the right price, they will probably buy it. So shop-window displays have a dual role: to impress by reflecting the shop’s brand image in the best light and thus encourage return visits, but also to attract with what’s on show and if possible entice the customer inside there and then.
