CMS Orchard Bins

Focus on a part of the store geared to men that makes it easy, and quick, to locate items of interest, plus  shows off companion, “impulse” products.

Idea:  Orchard Bins – place fresh baguettes, sauces and fresh vegies next to regular produce

Within designated spots, display “male-oriented” products side-by-side and use  settings that present a more masculine “look”.
