Simpsons and Millbrook's Crowborough centre swell Future Marketing Group's numbers to 14

After the recent addition of Poplars Garden Centre, Future Marketing Group (FMG) has added Simpsons of Inverness and Millbrook Garden Centre's second centre at Crowborough into the group, taking the total to 14.

Group chairman Martin Davies said: "We are very happy to add one of Scotland’s premier garden centres to FMG. It is very satisfying to see that the hard work of existing members negotiations with our suppliers is being recognized across the country by good independent businesses. I am sure they will want to take full advantage of the increased purchasing power and marketing initiatives available to them."

Simpson's owner Andrew Simpson said: "We are delighted to be joining Future Marketing for not only the obvious advantages that group membership will give but for the opportunity to share business ideas with like-minded people."
