Midwest Gloves display solid gold in Vegas

Originally developed by Midwest Glove to grow gardening category sales, the "Head-to-Toe" spinner has just received a Gold Merchandising Award at the National Hardware Show in Las Vegas for merchandising distinction. 

The innovative floor stand allows retailers to offer a customized mix of hats, gloves and footwear manufactured by Midwest Gloves. In addition to the customizable assortment capabilities, a small 1.25-sq.-ft. footprint means the display can be strategically located to maximize sales without disrupting customer traffic.

“We are very proud to receive this distinguished industry award. Our Head-To-Toe spinner merchandiser for gardening products is a truly creative method of displaying a wide assortment of high quality gardening hats, gloves and footwear,” said Stephen J. Franke, president of Midwest Gloves.

The Chillicother, Mo.,-based company manufactures a full line of premium quality work gloves, including lined leather, unlined leather, leather palm, chemical resistant, chore, jersey and cotton. The company also manufactures a full line of automotive gloves, outdoor gloves and garden gloves as well as lawn and garden footwear, boots and rainwear.
