Rockford, IL– Southern Imperial, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of fixture and display solutions for the retail industry, introduced the new Visi-Pull™, a shelf system designed to accommodate stacked items like yogurt, soups, jars of condiments and more. Unlike traditional pusher systems, the Visi-Pull™ is designed with tall sides and adjustable width to keep stacked containers of all sizes pulled forward and neat. It reduces stocking time and labor costs associated with organizing products by hand. It also presents products effectively while conserving valuable retail space.

The Visi-Pull™ allows retailers to maximize the amount of product they can display by stacking containers without sacrificing the ability to face and keep shelves organized without a lot of additional labor. Visi-Pull™ adapts to most cooler shelves with a front lip and includes 24” wide fronts for shelves without a front lip.

Rockford, IL–– Southern Imperial, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of fixture and display solutions for the retail industry, released the Tether Shelf, a shelf system designed to put product on display while keeping it tethered to the display shelf by retractable cords. The solution is ideal for allowing customers to interact with technical, high-end products while protecting sample devices from theft.

The Tether Shelf contains two rows for tether stands and can hold multiple bases on each row. The bottom of the shelf has a hinged cover to protect stands from being removed from the display. The Tether Shelf allows retailers to display entire categories of sample products for consumers in an unobtrusive, yet safe way.


Southern Imperial Introduces New Product to Deter Retail Theft

ROCKFORD, IL: April, 2014 – Southern Imperial, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of fixture and display solutions for the retail industry, introduced the new Stop Lock for Loop Hooks. The product is designed to prevent product ‘sweep,’ the process by which a thief sweeps an entire row of product. The lock requires staff assistance to access product, thereby protecting inventory. The Stop Lock fits on the end of a loop hook, and its red design provides immediate visual cues throughout the display line that the inventory is locked, making the prospect of shoplifting less attractive to would-be thieves.

The Stop Lock’s design also makes it easy to recognize if the lock is open or closed, preventing staff from intentionally leaving it open to theft, referred to as “sweethearting.” According to a recent survey, the National Retail Federation indicates that organized retail crime is on the rise and employee theft accounts for 43.9 percent of product shrink. The Stop Lock is designed to reduce both of these categories significantly.

In addition to its visibility and effectiveness at preventing product sweep, the Stop Lock is easy for retailers and store staff to use. Magnetic detacher keys are used to unlock the Stop Lock. These keys are sold separately.


Southern Imperial AutoFront™ Utilizes Gravity to Organize Retail Displays

ROCKFORD, IL: April, 2014 – Southern Imperial, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of fixture and display solutions for the retail industry released its AutoFront™ product line, a shelf system comprised of roller tracks with moderate incline using gravity in facing merchandise to the front of the shelf. The rollers come fully assembled and are over existing shelves or as a stand-alone shelf.

“Facing” refers to the practice of moving each product to the front edge of a shelf with the label turned forward. Retailers spend a significant amount of time facing product to maintain the appearance of full shelves and best position important brand packaging. Fully faced shelves enhance store appearance and improve consumer shopability, thereby increasing sales.

Having store staff manually pull products forward on shelves is time-consuming and doesn’t keep products faced in real time. The AutoFront™ roller system employs gravity to keep retail shelves faced, making the store more attractive and convenient for customers while reducing staff time.

Each wood display includes three shelves, one base, and four dual-wheel casters.

In addition to the standard wood displays, Southern Imperial has the capability to create unique, custom displays incorporating the best practices in retail with customer preferences for materials, color, design and space allocation.
