Oh, don’t get me wrong. I think Slatwall panels have a place in retail. In fact, they are great mass merchandisers. Dollar stores or popular price point establishments who wish to convey this to their shoppers can certainly benefit from its use. However, for specialty shops, boutiques, or any retail who wishes to elevate perceived product values are better off using other retail fixtures. The only time I think slatwall looks good is when they are full to the brim with merchandise. Otherwise, the repeated patterns of line simply take attention away from the very products one wishes to sell. What do you think?
