Space-saving Solutions for College Living

Capturing your customers’ attention by providing engaging displays, stocking essential products, and organizing your retail space in a way that truly shows you understand their needs is a key factor in making the most of your merchandise and your showroom.

So what are some of your customers’ needs? Well, college students have more than a few, naturally, but the need for more space is definitely one that is within your capacity, as their go-to retailer, to provide.

And no, you cannot miraculously turn their 180 square foot dorm room into a penthouse suite nor can you magically make a few of their roommates disappear but you can offer products to make the most of the space that they have available.

Here are the top five space-saving products available from The Douglas Stewart Company. Take advantage of this perfect sales opportunity by organizing a savvy display to grab your customers’ attention and introduce items to simplify their lives.

1. Charging Stations

Students can make the most out of limited space by turning one outlet into three, as well as gaining two USB charging ports along with a holder for smartphones, cameras, and handheld gaming consoles.

This keeps clutter off their desks and keeps all their devices charged and ready to go.
