Our People Are Our Biggest Strength.

Our success stems from an exceptionally high employee retention rate and a commitment to customer loyalty. Our philosophy is based on partnership approach and deep knowledge of our customers.
Why Choose Great Northern Instore?
Unlike most merchandising companies, Great Northern Instore does not search out projects to bid on. Instead, we seek customers to partner with. As partners, we provide a full range of merchandising services, including exhibit displays, store displays, sample kits, samples, and fulfillment programs.
Rather than a broad brush outlook, we concentrate on specific industries – Building Products, Paint and Stain, and Builders Hardware. This concentration has allowed us to become very cost effective by investing in equipment specifically designed for the products our customers desire.
Great Northern Instore has done countless big box resets, has made tens of thousands of displays for distributors around the world, and routinely makes single exhibit displays for our partners. No job is too big or too small – we make whatever our customers need to succeed in their merchandising programs.
With over four decades of merchandising experience, Great Northern Instore has developed the capability to make a wide range of products in house, rather than subcontracting product manufacturing, This range includes samples, sample kits, fan decks, signs, wallboards, counter displays, and floor displays. Wood and engineered wood products are cut and machined, and wood is stained/painted and top coated in our Belvidere facility.
