With garden centre retailing constantly evolving, all operators are searching for added income and interesting partners within their centres, but the day-to-day running of a centre can make bringing such plans to fruition a difficult task.

Malcolm Scott Consultants will be partnering with the retail team at its parent company Harris Lamb during Glee 2017, providing garden centre owners with the chance to discuss their plans and requirements with an experienced team.

Concessions are a huge source of income

As retail and garden centre specialists, representing centre owners and operators, the team’s core aim is to help clients maximise income, add to the centre’s draw and bring in occupiers that will add to dwell time and spend within a centre.

David Walton, Head of Retail, explains: “The Harris Lamb retail team specialises in the acquisition and disposal of retail space nationwide. With retained clients such as Poundstretcher, Indian burrito pioneers Wrapchic and other FTSE 250 companies, we are well placed to find retailers for concession space.

“Working in conjunction with our partners at Malcolm Scott we aim to bring successful retail offerings to garden centres around the UK. We can provide a complete solution from reviewing planning potential all the way through to leasing and letting, all with national coverage.”

The team will be on hand to discuss opportunities on stand 20G50-H51.

David added: “Through demographic research and experience our team can create a bespoke solution for letting concessions and retail space on clients’ behalf. We pride ourselves on being able to identify and create value with a retail offering that will most benefit each client.”
