Pagets grows its landscaping sales with A&G's 'Outside Room'

Published:  19 July, 2011

SOUTH YORKSHIRE: Pagets, the Sheffield-based independent builders' merchants, said sales of hard landscaping are up thanks to a partnership with Acheson & Glover.

"We started working with A&G at the beginning of this year. Its products and service are definitely having a positive impact on our hard landscaping business," said Robert Copley, Pagets' general manager.

"A&G provided a new display area called the 'Outside Room' concept. We use it as our main selling point," Mr Copley reported.

"It's out in our yard and displays most of A&G's range. Customers love it because they can see, touch and walk on the actual product and get a feel for what the product looks like in-situ." The display, he believes, is helping his company's sales of higher value paving.
