Wyevale sells five of its biggest garden centres to Dobbies
The Wyevale Garden Centres chain has agreed to sell five of its biggest garden centres to Dobbies.
The sale includes centres in Gloucester, Heighley Gate, Huntingdon, Woodbridge and Woodlands. Completion is expected later this month with the centres reopening as Dobbies soon after.
The acquisition will involve more than 400 Wyevale Garden Centres staff members transferring to Dobbies and will increase Dobbies’ estate to 39 centres across the UK.
Roger Mclaughlan, chief executive of Wyevale Garden Centres, said: “We are pleased to have agreed the sale of five of our largest centres to Dobbies, one of the UK’s biggest and most experienced garden centre operators. We would like to thank our great colleagues at these centres, who have been central to our turnaround in the past few years and wish them well for the next stage of their growth and development under Dobbies’ ownership.”
