You get what you pay for
The good news is that this is a very affordable rack. Unfortunately, the savings also dictate the quality. It's a flimsy rack as it comes out of the box. Since the shelves just lay in place, one good bump and the rack is going down. That said, if you use wire ties to hold everything in place, the rack will be acceptable.
It did arrive quickly so that was a positive. The components are a sturdy metal, however very flimsy as a whole as the pieces don't secure together so I am returning it. When you accidentally touch the sides, the shelves move making the entire unit almost fall. If you intentionally try to move it, the sides of the unit collapse because there is nothing securing all the pieces together. Very wobbly as a whole, poor design.
Could Be Better
These aren't as great as the other ones I had ordered. Not as sturdy. I will order these again IF I have to have this size again, but only IF I have to have this size. Otherwise I will stick with the other ones with 4 racks that I ordered.
Broken or not put together correctly
We ordered 7 racks and of the 5 we have opened so far, they are all broken or the metal is not linked correctly so they are all extremely lopsided. A waste of money for our publication and now we have 7 locations that won't be receiving our paper.
I publish a city paper and this rack looks so nice. It's very strong (easily holds 100 papers (28 pages) and fits easily in high traffic areas. Our paper is 10" x 10.25" w. The only problem we have with these racks is that other people put their publications on our rack, haha. I guess you'll have that! side note: Displays2go customer service is excellent too. Love their Boston accents! Hope this helps.
These are pretty good for the price all things considered. You'll need to do some remedial crimping of the wire for it to keep its assembled form if you're moving it "assembled." Seems to hold about 75 editions before the shelves give any. This is perfect for your lower traffic retailers. The promotional plate size could be larger, but allows you to pretty easily affix your placard without it be too easy to rip off.
Easy setup, good size, good value
These are affordable racks that look great and set up easily. They are surprisingly affordable, a good size and value. Our newspaper vendor locations like them a lot and the sign area on top helps sell more papers at the locations that use them.
This newsstand was exactly what we needed! It's the perfect size and the best price we found online. It arrived within 2 days and took 30 seconds to put together. The header slot allows you to customize the newsstand too, which is great.
Exactly what we wanted
Great price- I had seen this elsewhere for double the price. Exactly what we needed. Shipped fast. Easy to assemble. Great product!
barely stands up.
There were no setup instructions in the box, so it is hard to tell if we received all the necessary pieces, however, upon assembly the rack is not structural and barely stands up on its own. With a slight nudge the entire thing will collapse. I'm surprised by the fact that any engineer would come up with this design – it's entirely possible that I'm missing pieces, but you wouldn't know since there are no instructions or advice online.
Great Rack for the Money
This rack does a great job for us. Two shelves allows for a good quantity of papers to be left and it helps with others who seem to find the need to "borrow" our second shelf to keep their products there and leave ours alone.
