Garment Storage Tips
Whilst garment retail enjoys a huge shares of the retail market, in lots of ways clothes retail is different to the retail of other goods. For instance, the efficient storage of clothes requires particular solutions that take into account the individual needs of garments.
Suede and leather clothes are especially vulnerable in regards to storage, and must be treated with delicacy and commons sense. When storing suede and leather goods over long periods it is important to store it in a well ventilated area that is cool, otherwise the materials could warp overtime.
Some garments are best stored if they are laid out flat, as opposed to being hung. This might seem a little counter-intuitive, however we must remember that different materials behave in different ways and so require particular storage solutions. For instance, when storing knitwear it can be advantageous to lay the clothes flat as opposed to hanging them, as they could lose shape.
For some garments, or over shorter periods of time, it is a good idea to hang up clothes. This works especially well in a retail setting, i.e. on a shop floor, as consumers can gain easy access to clothes, as they are stored effectively, such as coat rails.
Some storage solutions have extra functionality, for instance a portable garment rail as move-ability, which means that it can be adapted to the specifics of your store.
