Family owned and operated business celebrates 25 years of providing mom and pop convenience stores, jewelry stores, card manufacturers, gift shops, public entities, museums, universities and malls with their display case needs. The Fixtures Group was founded in 1984 as a California based brick and mortar office with a warehouse and showroom. Marissa Nicks, who has taken over the business that her father Bob Nicks started, recalled "In the early days of the business my father and brother would go door to door with the company catalogue calling on retail locations offering to update and revamp shop owners' display cases." Many of their first customers were jewelry stores and gift shops. Marissa also stated that "In the beginning selling a $200 item was a reason for excitement." Along the way a relationship with a recycled paper products company was established leading The Fixtures Group to design and manufacture the industry's very first acrylic card racks.
The Fixtures Group has been an e-commerce pioneer, taking the company entirely online on October 31, 1997. This October will mark The Fixtures Group twelve year anniversary selling exclusively online (early versions of the website can be seen on web.archive.org ). A high school student designed the company's very first website and logo. Today this boutique company is keeping up with the ever changing web by creating a fan page on Facebook, joining Linkedin and twittering along with the rest of the world.
The Fixtures Group has designed its own line of kiosks, is the supplier of top quality high-end display cases and prides itself with attention to customer service and a focus on ethics. Some clients over the years have included Macy's, NASA, Albertson's, Postnet, USA Discount and many small family owned convenience stores and shops.
