QD to open Cherry Lane Garden Centre in East Yorkshire
Value retailer QD Stores Group has added a further site to its garden centre portfolio with the acquisition of the freehold and assets of Croft Nurseries & Garden Centre in East Yorkshire.
Situated on the outskirts of Beverley, Croft Nurseries is a successful family owned business stocking plants, garden furniture, garden sheds, plant products, seeds and related products.
Croft’s staff of 20 will transfer to the QD operation later this month (April) which will trade under the company’s Cherry Lane Garden Centre brand.
The acquisition follows QD Stores’ purchase of a new build garden centre site at Cromford, Derbyshire in February.
Additional freehold acquisitions are promised from the company which is currently at heads-of-terms with another independent garden centre in the south-east of England.
