    • The Duck Pod - Self Contained Hire Units | Duck in Boots

      The Duck Pods ​ These new purpose built retail pods were new for Summer 2020. Located in Sudbury and less than an hour by car from Cambridge and just 30 minutes from Colchester, Bury St Edmunds and Ipswich. Sudbury also boasts generous FREE car parking and is a popular destination with tourists with its rich heritage and mix of independent shops and eateries. The pods themselves are located in the heart of the town centre, near to the town hall and opposite a large free car park just off the high-street and historic Market Hill. The pod-site has an on-site gym and spa and we also have our own new Duck In Boots store on site - therefore the pods are ideally positioned with guaranteed passing footfall. ​ The pods are equipped with power, heat and light and so are perfect all-weather trading points. The pod spaces are suitable for many uses including gallery, office, open studios and service space. ​ Space is available for flexible hire either daily, weekly or monthly durations and occupiers (joint or solo) can also benefit from Duck in Boots promotional activity which we are happy to discuss. There is ample space for outside seating and promotional signage and each pod is 2.2m by 5.8m internally. You hire the shell unit and can then dress is to meet your brand. We do offer shelf and rail hire if required. ​ The pods offer independent businesses flexible trading options which is ideal in the current uncertain trading conditions where lengthy leases are not suitable for small operations. A typical lease would normally see a commitment of 3 to 6 years in most properties, with the added expense of electric, building insurance and rates too, this is not viable especially in the current climate. That is why these pods have been developed making appearing with your business, simple and affordable. ​ Top Tips: Eye catching displays and making it clear you are open with signage and ideally outside displays along with your door open, really helps to get customers through the door. Don't look ready to pounce on the next person who comes in, look busy but inviting. Remember , these are strange economic times, so treat this opportunity as a great way to promote your brand, take photos of your displays and items in your very own shop and get active on social media. ​ Our handy calendar below will help you to see if your required dates are available and our terms and conditions are below to enable you to see the full details of use and includes the pricing structure. ​ Please note: Whilst we can accommodate Food & Beverage traders, cooking is not permitted inside the pods. Food traders will need to demonstrate their business registration and hygiene rating prior to booking and must not conflict with the neighbouring bakery.
