Agency offers garden centres costs savings

Nick Cash Agencies has worked with Webbs garden centre to save £30,000 a year on lighting costs.

The company represents many companies on an agency basis and "can offer a garden centre a consultative approach to improving their operations and their retail offer".
Operational partners can help garden centres re-design their restaurant areas, signage, inside play areas (including digital touch screen technology), branded entrance matting, blinds and awnings and other solutions. 
Nick Cash Agencies can put forward companies who might be interested in contributing towards the cost by adding their branding. 
Webbs running and maintencance lighting costs were £35,000, while new lights from Carbonlights costs were less than £6,000.
Proposals usually incorporate installing ambient lighting, with down lighters and spotlights. Lighting costs would be in the region of £63,655 (ambient lighting) for replacing 330 fittings giving payback in two years.
