Douglas Davies said: "Marcus Eyles and Neil Stevens formerly owners and Directors of The Garden Store Ltd left Hillview Garden Centres on 31st August 2016  to pursue new interests. The company wish to thank them both for their contribution to the business and for the work they have done to establish Garden Store as a recognised gardening brand in the Midlands. We wish them well in the future."
Louise Golden will also leave in October. She came to the company in 2014 when Hillview bought Garden Store.
Douglas Davies said: "I have enjoyed working with Louise‎ over the last two years and wish her well for the future. Her comprehensive knowledge of the UK plant world has been of great benefit to the business. As part of the new Regional Manager structure, Jo Wyles will become Plant Category Coordinator with Tom Cook supporting in the purchase of European stock."

Douglas Davies said on business: "Trade is brisk at the moment. The last few weeks have been strong and we're looking forward to a good autumn. Lots going is on in terms of store developments."
