Director Edward Boult said: "We are very excited by this acquisition. After three very strong trading years it’s great to add a third Centre to the mix."
Operation manager Paul Dye added: "We have a lot of work ahead of us but we will have the first phase of the Plant Area open to the public in just over a month."
Centre manager Paul Smith will be driving the Folkestone Centre forwards with plans for an Aquatic Centre & Groves Coffee Shop & Restaurant. He said: "We aim to build on the success and reputation of Canterbury and Tenterden Garden Centres. We’ve been overwhelmed by the support from staff and locals so far and I’m really looking forward to building a Centre we can all be proud of."
