Hi, the following is a quote from: - COLLECTION MANAGEMENT IN AN NHS LIBRARY SERVICE

Whilst the research was being conducted, the main collection at the Library began to suffer from an acute lack of space. The growth of the collection began to stretch the current shelving allocation to the limit. It appeared that the Library would have to either secure more shelving or else obtain new, larger premises.

Now, please see the following example I created (in which I use the expression "shelving allocation"), imagining it is a sentence in a market research report.

In order to sell our new medicine better, we need to consult the drugstore managers about their shelving allocation.

In this sentence, I want "shelving allocation" to mean "which products should go into which segments of the store shelves".
Would you say "shelving
arrangement" (or arrangements?) is better?
