31 Surreal Storefront Displays

From Aquatic Paper Window Displays to Interactive Store Windows

— November 20, 2013 — Business
Sometimes a little extra effort is needed in order to draw in consumers to a store, and these surreal storefront displays are showcasing how bold and flamboyant themes can be a creative way to grab people's attention.

With the amount of retail stores lining up the streets and filling up the malls, differentiating your business and designs from other similar brands can be a challenge. That's why opting for an over-the-top and eye-catching window display is a great way to catch the attention of consumers as they walk by. While having a well-known brand and high-quality products is definitely one way to draw in potential buyers, making a bold statement about your brand that people are able to see is a creative way to visually stand out amongst other retailers.

From movie-inspired retail displays to trippy tea party themes, these surreal storefront displays will definitely have people stopping in their tracks to observe these whimsically engaging scenes.
