From groceries to clothing to books and toys to furniture and electronics, you can buy almost anything at big club stores. Not only do club stores offer a wide range of items, they do so at comparatively low prices. One way they do so is through their specially designed packaging.
Club stores are different from the more conventional retail stores. They often occupy huge spaces to house large supplies of economical products in bulk. It’s a different purchase environment with a membership required to enter, wider aisle and larger carts. However, the biggest reason consumers flock to big club stores (outside of the free appetizers) is because of the lower prices.
These larger club stores are able to cut costs by removing excesses, from removing excess packaging material to reducing the waste and handling cost.
With less excess packaging material, waste and handling costs, club stores are able to offer lower prices. With decrease packaging material, product layout becomes strategic, varying on whether the product is displayed in the front of the store, middle or back.
In warehouse club stores, displays and packaging are often presented differently than in other types of retail environments. For example, Sam’s Club and Costco maintain specific requirements for in-store displays and packaging.
