A gondola (usually pronounced // in this context) is a freestanding fixture used by retailers to display merchandise. Gondolas typically consist of a flat base and a vertical component featuring notches, pegboards, or slatwalls. The vertical piece can be fitted with shelves, hooks, or other displays. Gondolas placed end-to-end can form rows of shelving, while stand-alone gondolas tend to be used for special themed displays. A gondola placed perpendicular to the end of a row of other gondolas can be used as an endcap. In Europe, gondola normally refers to double-sided shop shelving. In clothing stores, merchandising is carried out using 3-specialized shelving for clothing, and makes it possible to highlight specific products to increase the average basket at the checkout.
