Klondyke poised to take over Beverley Garden Centre

East Riding Council's planning committee has voted to approve an application that will help a new operator to take over Beverley Garden Centre.

The Garden Centre Group's lease expires on January 15 and GCG has decided the centre is not profitable enough to continue with.

Now Klondyke Garden Centres has permission to sell a wider range of goods and may take on the site and sell the same products on offer at the group's 25 other stores nationwide.

Jon Los, managing director of site owner Keygrowing, said: "I'm over the moon that they've voted for it. Now we can get on with it.

"The intention is to meet the staff. Now it's all a matter of logistics, the new company can't take over the lease until January 15."

The application, in two parts, was to allow the retailer to sell items found in most garden centres. The list includes crafts, conservatory furniture, food and clothes.
