My local GC has massive areas given over to designer crockery, clothes, shoes, jewellery, greetings cards, books, games, chutney, jams etc. and I won't even mention their displays at christmas. But, they would not stock these items if people weren't buying the stuff. They have now set up an indoor play area and the restaurant has a children's menu so the bosses know exactly how to offset their losses against the weather. My local garden nursery now has three very large detached houses sitting on it.
