When talking aboutshelves, most people in Los Angeles imply primarily bookshelves, although in reality the scope of shelves is very wide. In addition to books, at home, we use shelves for storing clothes, kitchen utensils and bath accessories.
In warehouses, shelves are used to store various goods. In laboratories, chemical glassware and chemicals are stored on the shelves. In stores, sellers often use shelves to showcase their products. And, in offices, shelves are widely used for storing various documents.
