Behind the Walmart Display

I always enjoy the peek behind the scenes, the stuff the customers are not supposed to see. I saw this tonight at Walmart. Hanging on this display rack, was the layout for what the display is/was supposed to look like. Upon review, I should have stepped back and taken a picture of the entire wall rack to see how they were doing, but as it is, this sort of thing is just interesting. This would be seemingly pretty easy for a store employee to follow, that is, right up until the last product in any row is gone.

I’m posting this tonight from inside a McDonald’s where I stopped to get a coffee. As I was waiting for a fresh brew, I noticed some window display with the instructions printed on the back side of them. As you probably know, this sort of “behind the scenes” stuff always intrigues me. Anyway, take a look at the two displays, posted below.
