Langlands buys Hayes Garden World in Leeds

Langlands Garden Centre of Shiponthorpe, York, has bought the Hayes Garden World site in Leeds and will rename it Langlands Leeds.

The centre reopens tomorrow (11 August). The agent was Quinton Edwards. Hayes' other centre in Ambleside will continue its previous business.

Langlands representative James Ducker said: "There's no reason why this shouldn't be a bigger centre than Shiptonthorpe."

"Over the coming months we will be investing a great deal of time and money in the new site on York Road. Our success in Shiptonthorpe is based on over 55 years of experience, which we are looking to emulate in Leeds."

He added: "Langlands Leeds will offer a completely different shopping experience to that provided by the previous owners. We will offer not only traditional garden centre products, but also gifts, outdoor living products, a coffee shop, planteria and farm shop"

Langlands opened in 1955 and now grows 250,000 plants a year.
