Shipley Garden Centre is located in Heanor, Derbyshire and is Hillview's eleventh centre.
Hillview Garden Centres completed the acquisition of Shipley Garden Centre, Heanor, Derbyshire from Colin Beale and family on 26 January. Colin Beale, along with son James, daughter Louise and son-in-law Phil have operated the centre for nearly 30 years.
Douglas-Davies said: "It's a great centre and fits well with our existing stores. Colin, his family and team have created a thriving business which is undoubtedly the locals favourite garden centre. I'm looking forward to working with the team to help the centre develop further and benefit from the advantages of being part of a group."
Hillview Group director Nadav Livni said: "This is an exciting new addition for Hillview Garden Centres and continues the growth path of our group through selective acquisitions. I am pleased by the successful execution of our long-term strategy to establish a portfolio of 'local champion' garden centres, which offer our customers a retail destination experience, with an appealing product mix and friendly knowledgeable staff. We continually invest to upgrade our stores and add exciting new Soft Play Barns for children with their own cafes and party rooms. We believe this is a unique sector that can provide a rewarding, multi-generational family experience with seasonal attractions throughout the year."
The site will be known as Shipley Garden Store & Aquatics.
The group started in September 2011 with the purchase of Studley Garden Centre near Redditch. It now employs over 400 people.
Hillview centres are at Billing, Burford House, Charlecote, Studley Green, Hilltop, Littleheath, Scotland Nurseries, Studley, Newton Regis, Pavilion and Shipley.
