The acquisition increases the number of centres within the group to 26.

Chief executive Bob Hewitt said:

"We are very pleased to acquire Beverley Garden Centre and are excited about the prospects for the future. It is a relatively new, purpose built centre in a good location and we have secured a much improved planning consent regarding the product range.

"The centre ceased trading at Christmas following a ‘closing down’ sale by The Garden Centre Group and will be fully refurbished prior to re-launch at the beginning of March. We look forward to welcoming all customers back to the garden centre.

"This is an exciting time for the company. In addition to the acquisition of Beverley we are currently progressing substantial redevelopment and refurbishment projects at High Legh and Inverness, both of which will be completed prior to spring trading.

"This follows the successful redevelopment of Northallerton which was completed in 2011 and is in line with our on-going strategic aim to invest and upgrade key centres in the current estate. Finally the garden centre at Wilmslow will be rebuilt following the fire in 2011. We anticipate that the new centre will open late summer 2012."

Klondyke Group were advised by Hill Dickinson, Solicitors, Liverpool. The vendors were advised by Garness Jones, Chartered Surveyors, Hull.
