You will need the proper tools if you are planning to move ahead with starting your retail merchandising or visual merchandising.
Retail merchandising agencies or companies will likely provide you what you need to complete the job.
When working for yourself or an agency that does not provide you with the tools needed when you will need to prepare to set up a point of purchase (POP) or visual window display
As a retail merchandiser, you will be expected to set up a point of purchase displays, visual window displays, or even booths at events.
All these various tasks demand a toolbox that has a number of tools that can complete various tasks yet be light enough to bring from one job to the next on the same day.
Some displays may be lightweight and not require much in the way of tools. This is seen mainly with cardboard POPs.
