Laithwaites expands its presence in garden centres

Wine company Laithwaites is making inroads into the garden retail market.


Laithwaite’s Wine is now open at eight sites owned by The Garden Centre Group.

The unmanned concession most recently opened at Lechlade, which The Garden Centre Group (TGCG) bought from Park Garden Centres in September 2013.

Others are at Hare Hatch, Chichester, Woodlands, Melbicks, Huntingdon, Stratford-upon-Avon and Marlow and TGCG now plans more. Laithwaites is also partner with garden show Grow (20-22 June).

The Garden Centre Group is now finding its own concessions after previously working with First Franchise. Clothes retailer Bonmarche is now in three The Garden Centre Group sites and plans more.
