My Tiny Coffee Shop
A constantly recurring theme of the POS islands is 'Living with Plants', which is presented as a small cafe this year, following the bathroom and the home office in previous years. In the retail trade, small gastronomy concepts will be more intensively integrated into the sales spaces, as is already the case in some garden centres. In addition to the increased quality of stay, a cafe encourages visitors to stay longer and results in increased sales. With active concepts, in which the visitors cut and enjoy the herbs for their tea themselves, as shown here, positive emotions are linked with the purchase, which, coupled with the corresponding product offerings for at home, also extend these into the private realm. In any case a field that offers great potential for garden centres. In addition to this, a cafe in the garden centre may also provide inspiration for gastronomy facilities to design these to be more attractive and warmer in public buildings.
