A few weeks ago I was skiing at Jay Peak in northern Vermont. I stopped to take a peek at their new store, simply called the Mountain Shop. It’s a great space with lots of rack appeal – especially this glove fixture. I know that gloves are the Achilles heel of many retailers – they take up too much space yet are a high margin item that needs to be accessible to customers and constantly restocked.
I emailed Jennifer Wirth – Retail Manager at Jay Peak Resort. She said that she had them custom made to her specifications – and best part is, this converts to a t-shirt display in the summer months. I loved it because of its practicality and ability to hold a ton of product yet is modular enough to display multiple items…and it’s on casters!
