Haskins sees slight turnover drop

Haskins' four south coast garden centres have recorded turnover of £31.5m in the year to 26 February 2017.

Profit before tax was up 6.6% at £5m, while operating profit was down 8.1% at £3.8m.

Haskins said they had four established an mature centres which were seeing "steady but undramatic" growth. 

Director Glenn Carroll said: "The destination garden centre continues to prosper generally with the widening product range continuing to develop all year round business." 

He said Haskins' centres were some of the most modern and profitable in the industry and that three are purpose-built, having been refitted or rebuilt in the last nine years. Three have restaurants with more than 400 seats. The group remains on the look out for land to build new centres.
