Packing and Display: The choice of style is yours!
Rolling Metal Case used in Holiday Wonderland program
We can pack your merchandise in our ROLLING METAL DISPLAY CASES. For those of you familiar with a book fair, it works just like a book fair. We roll the cases into your sales area then you open the cases each morning and start selling. Close the cases at night for security. Roll the cases down the hall to each classroom if you'd like. No more hassle of setting up your display - we roll it in ready for you to start selling.
(Rolling cases are provide on written request and are subject to availability. We can handle many, many schools in cases, however, cases are not available outside our regular delivery zone in Texas and Louisiana - you need to sign up early if you wish to use the cases.).
Schools may also choose to set up their display in the traditional manner - covering the tables with tabelcloths, then setting out a sample of each item in descending price order, keeping the remaining stock on tables behind the display or under the display table. This style of display lets you show off the gifts in a very attractive manner.
(Note: Texas schools can receive an extra 2% discount off their merchandise sub-total at the end of the program for using the traditional table-top sales manner instead of using the rolling metal display cases.)
