Wyevale Garden Centres (WGC), the UK’s biggest garden centre operator, has announced the sale of another two centres.
Wellingborough has been sold to Higgins Landscape and Garden Centres Limited (part of Higgins Building Supplies Limited), and Wolds View to Woodthorpe Hall Centres Limited.
Both buyers are delighted by the opportunity to expand their existing businesses and will continue to operate these sites as garden centres.
WGC chief executive Roger Mclaughlan said: “We are pleased to have agreed the sale of a further two centres. We would like to thank our great colleagues at these centres, who have been central to our turnaround in the past few years, and wish them well for the next stage of their growth and development under new ownership.”
The sales are expected to complete during December.
WGC chief financial officer Anthony Jones added: “Since the launch of the sale process in May we have now sold 37 ‘non-core’ centres and are currently evaluating a wide range of competitive offers from the group buyers, regional operators and local entrepreneurs. We look forward to further positive discussions with all potential buyers.”
