Newbank Garden Centre posts improved results

The four centre Lancashire-Yorkshire group saw garden centre and e-commerce returns improve in the year to 31 August 2015 in recently posted results.

Turnover was £8.87m, up 10.73 per cent from £8.01m. 

E-commerce sales were up 66.26 per cent.

Gross margin rose to 44.9 per cent from 42.6 per cent.

Newbank has centres at Radcliffe, Halifax, Dobcross and Royton.

Land bought at the Halifax site in 2014 was in a contaminated state, leading to further negotiations about building an additional garden centre.
