Concessions at Duxburys
Many people have experienced changes in garden centres. And for good reason too. Its true. Places like Duxburys have become more of a destination and incoporate concessions. Many come for an afternoon out. You may ask what is a concession? A concession is basically another business operating within the main store.
Concessions are expected by many customers because as they add something of interest to their visit. The question that really needs answering Is why do businesses have them? The reasoning goes a little deeper than just collecting rent.
So why are garden centres becoming destinations? Not that long ago businesses like ours only sold garden related products but often found them selves struggling for a good chunk of the year. Other businesses were looking for places to operate with free car parking and bills included in their rent.
