The Pantry

Project Overview:

The Pantry owns and operates convenience stores – most notably Kangaroo – throughout the Southeast. They wanted a stand-alone floor display with enough space to merchandize e-cigarettes from multiple companies.  In addition to the cost of the display, ease of delivery and assembly was a big concern.  Through multiple design options and prototyping, Sunbelt Displays was able to create a light-weight yet durable display that not only met The Pantry’s budget but also allowed for as much merchandising space as possible. The display was designed in such a way that it could ship knocked down flat (KDF) via FedEx ground (rather than a much more costly LTL freight shipment) and could be easily assembled onsite. Through its relationship with FedEx, Sunbelt negotiated a special shipping rate to further reduce costs for The Pantry.  Sunbelt Displays coordinated with The Pantry’s merchandising teams and with FedEx to ensure that displays were delivered in a very tight time frame prior to specific store reset dates.

Scope of Services:

  • Conceptualization of a free-standing, revolving display that could merchandize multiple brands
  • Drawing and 3D renderings of the display for presentation to the buyers
  • Problem-solving and coordination with individual brand managers
  • Manufacture and fabrication of the displays on a timely basis to meet store reset dates
  • Packaging and fulfillment to hundreds of individual store locations

Project Size:

Regional – displays shipped to Kangaroo convenience stores throughout the South (North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida).

Features:

  • free-standing spinning display
  • ample room on both sides of display for product merchandizing
  • designed so it could ship KDF to save shipping costs and be easily assembled onsite
