Project Description

The Challenge

The Source Skate and Snowboards in Calgary was opening an exciting new flagship store on 11th Ave, a prime retail location in the heart of the city. A primary focus for this store was to have the biggest in-stock selection of the hottest shoes, snowboard boots, bindings, and helmets for their customers. Dave, the owner, knew he had to have as large a retail floor as possible, which meant the most efficient use of space in the stock rooms was of the utmost importance.

The Solution

McLennan & Company’ storage experts planned four combination rivited shelving and Mizer mobile storage systems to make the best use of the space, while remaining as economical as possible. The riveted shelving’s accessibility from all sides and adjustability, mixed with it’s economical steel and wood design made it the perfect shelving option, and it was planned specifically to each room to house specific box sizes– shoes, boots, bindings, and helmets. Mizer Mobiles compacted these units to eliminate wasted aisle space, allowing the store to stock thousands of products, ensuring everything would be in stock and ready for the instant demands of their customers. The store is beautiful– the wide open retail spaces and a cabin-in-the-mountains aesthetics make it a welcoming paradise for boarders. Their efficient storage systems facilitated this airy atmosphere, while ensuring everything on the shelves is available to try on and take home today.
