Harbor has been perfecting the art and operation of retail design for more than 70 years. A founding team of seven determined individuals paved the way for a national footprint with two manufacturing plants to help retailers and brands lead retail transformation. Our expert team members are skilled in everything under the retail display sun, including research & strategy, environmental design, custom engineering, rapid prototyping, technology integration, steel, metal, plastic & wood lines, lamination, assembly, shipping and logistics. Harbor continues to prove itself as an industry leader, promoting transformation and innovation throughout the retail industry. Specific to the convenience store category: Harbor dove into this retail niche with convenience store fixtures more than 30 years ago, and have been making big waves in the industry ever since.
The dynamic displays of Harbor can pivot to meet the demands of the ever-changing marketplace. In fact, future-proofing designs is more than a value add of Harbor, it’s a part of our foundational approach to retail. We set a new standard for C-Store design firms by identifying major flaws within the previous, outdated way of designing, and made it our goal to evolve the C-Store experience, for both the customer and the employee. Over our 30 years of experience in the convenience industry, Harbor pinpointed the inconveniences of standard fixtures to tailor an innovative solution that is unique to each customer. As a result, bulky, hard-to-recieve, set-up and maneuver fixtures have become a thing of the past. Our Infinity Fixture System allows for simple customization and reconfiguration for anything from tobacco displays to merchandise display racks. Not only do these solutions provide pain-free assembly, the durable craftsmanship goes well beyond typical everyday wear and tear. Changing industry trends and of course, changing governmental regulations, are never a concern with Harbor the Infinity Fixture system due to its adaptive engineering and thoughtful design. Along the way, we’re available to you at every step, from design to installation. But Harbor didn’t stop at innovating with the product alone, Harbor developed an industry-leading client and field service with proprietary tools like our online retailer portal and dashboard: LaunchPad. All this to say, the Infinity Fixture and other shelving displays and convenience store shelving (even the old school gondola shelving units) are practically a one-stop shop for convenience retailers and category managers for tobacco, adult beverage, health and beauty, sweet and salty and more.
Harbor approaches convenience through a future-forward lens. Not only do we look at where C-Store is headed, we’re paying attention to what’s in store for other industries too, and the possible impact these changes could have on the convenience sector. Key trends like electric vehicles, AI and BOPIS are quickly reshaping the consumer journey, and we’re looking to be ahead of the curve. Our retail capabilities apply to growth inside C-Stores, too. As industry trends begin to call for altered approaches to what we’ve formally experienced inside the four-walls of convenience stores. We think beyond the typical shopper journey to look at the path to purchase and intent holistically, constantly strategizing efficient ways to create more foot traffic for every retailer we serve. Between our decades of experience in retail displays and convenience shelving and backbar fixtures, our visionary strategies for the future of the industry are limitless.
MORE ABOUT THE INFINITY SYSTEM:
We’ve all been there. A heavy, bulky box arrives at your store with instructions in seemingly every language except for the one you’re looking for. Three hours later, you’re elbow-deep in a complicated assembly with no end in sight with disrupted shoppers along the way. At the end of it all, your fixture is a sub-par solution that will maybe last a few years but offers no real redeeming qualities other than purely existing. Harbor C-Store wants to relieve your operations; frustrations and let’s face it – your back of painstaking assemblies and old-school fixtures and provide you with a stronger investment for today and tomorrow.
Harbor’s Infinity Fixture System is so much more than a typical c-store fixture. Infinity by Harbor offers reconfiguration, adjustment and customization that make each fixture a perfect fit for unique C-Store needs. With LED lighting and an Independent Header System, these solutions are designed to be long-lasting and ever-changing with industry trends. The tool-less installation of the Independent Header System and one-tool assembly for the remainder of the fixture make assembly and reconfiguration simple. Metal fixtures and shelving provide a sturdy and reliable console, while the 1’ width spring-loaded shelf design is compact enough to allow a spacious workspace. The Infinity Fixture offers complete C-Store products across a multitude of categories including cigarettes, smokeless, cigars, e-cigarettes, lottery, health & beauty, snacks and cough & cold. Whether your C-Store requires overhead cigarette racks or UTC merchandisers, Harbor can provide a fully assembled, flexible product. Upon arrival, your custom fixtures can be installed efficiently by a third party partner, but simple, minimal store disruption installation is ensured with or without an installation partner. Seamless in both design and function, Infinity by Harbor offers practical yet innovative fixture solutions for your backbar, aisles and end caps completely designed with you in mind.
