Storage solutions for a sporting goods retailer

High-street retailers generally offer a wide range of quantities and sizes of goods, which can lead to storage issues. Coping with ever-changing stock and seasonal variations can turn a carefully designed stockroom into a difficult to use and highly inefficient area.

A well-known sporting goods retailer engaged Action Handling to design and supply a series of J’ Rivet Shelving Bays on which to store all of their stock. The store had just installed a brand new mezzanine floor in their storeroom, which doubled the amount of potential space available.

Increasing numbers of incoming pallets filled with fast-moving stock were causing serious usability problems for staff. Upon consultation with our design team the decision was made to remove an element of the existing racking to create dedicated pallet sections. This combination of racking and floor space proved to be the perfect solution for our client’s current stock needs. In addition, if stock variations dictate a change later in the year, the racking can be easily re-assembled and put back into place. Action Handling went on to supply a vast amount of shelving bays, which the customer now uses on both floors of the back-office. In total twenty five units were supplied to this customer, with negotiations in place to roll-out the same system in all their other outlets across the UK.
