Whenever, you need to use GROUP_CONCAT with differente separator(I mean default separator is ',', But you want to change '@','#','&' etc as you want). then you have to use use SEPARATOR keyword in GROUP_CONCAT(). If you are working on laravel then you have to also use DB::raw() for write GROUP_CONCAT() inside the this function.

So, Basically how to change seprator in group_concat(), In following example i change ',' separator into '@'.you can use the following example how to use in laravel 4 and 5.

Example:

$items = DB::table('items')

->select("items.id","items.name"

,DB::raw("(GROUP_CONCAT(items_city.name SEPARATOR '@')) as `cities`"))

->leftjoin("items_city","items_city.item_id","=","items.id")

->groupBy('items.id')

->get();

Try this.....
