Shopping Baskets

Discover the essential role of shopping baskets in elevating your retail store’s customer experience and enhancing your in-store efficiency.

What Are Shopping Baskets?

Shopping baskets are provided to customers for conveniently collecting and holding items during their shopping journey. By offering various types and materials, these handy baskets cater to individual needs, ensuring every customer enjoys an effortless shopping experience.

Offering a basket to customers provides practical advantages for both parties. It simplifies the shopping process, allowing customers to comfortably carry more items, ultimately leading to increased sales. By providing multiple choices, retailers cater to different customer preferences, ensuring a satisfying experience.

Types of Shopping Baskets:

Our baskets come in a variety of materials to accommodate different settings and requirements. These include:

  • Plastic: available in different sizes, and colours; with a choice of carry handles or wheels, which can transform them into a trolley.
  • Wire: Steel mesh featuring different coloured handles.
  • Wicker: for a rustic aesthetic.
  • Net: suitable for lightweight items.

Our wire and plastic baskets are suited to a variety of goods. If you sell heavier items, these are a better solution than a net basket. They are not small to store but basket stackers can be purchased to keep retail spaces tidy and the baskets readily to hand for your customers. If your baskets are likely to be regularly left outside, then a wire shopping basket may be the best solution as plastic may weather. If you sell smaller items but would prefer a rigid basket, then a plastic shopping basket may be your best solution.

Net is well suited to fashion and cosmetic items. We’ve supplied these to several large brands who’ve chosen to have their logos printed on them. These baskets are particularly easy to store as they collapse on themselves when not in use.

As an alternative, we also provide moulded plastic bags. These heavy-duty bags do not allow small items to fall through gaps. These plastic units also make useful reusable carrier bag alternatives. They are sturdy and flexible and available in several different colours. They are particularly useful for hardware stores.

Tips for adding Shopping Baskets to your shop: 

Implementing shopping baskets in your store can increase both overall customer satisfaction and revenue. To optimise their usage, follow these steps:

  1. Position the baskets strategically at the store entrance or other high-traffic areas, ensuring visibility and accessibility for customers.
  2. Display clear signage or instructions on the usage of shopping baskets to guide customers.
  3. Regularly clean and sanitise the baskets to ensure hygiene and maintain store ambience.
  4. Monitor basket usage to assess the effectiveness, making adjustments to quantity or distribution as required.
