B&M reaches 100 garden centres milestone in just 5 years

B&M, based in Speke, has opened its 100th Garden Centre in Salisbury and has plans to open a further ten Garden Centres in 2016.

The leading discount retailer has further strengthened its brand presence and position in the growing gardening market with a milestone 100th Garden Centre.

B&M is one of the fastest growing retailers in the UK, with more than 500 stores across the UK selling a variety of products, everything from food and drink to toys; homewares and even a large DIY range. Last year alone B&M sold enough artificial turf to cover more than nine football pitches, enough fence panels to cross the channel five times and more than five million plants.

The retailer opened their first garden centre in 2011 as part of their Leek store on Barnfields Road and have rapidly increased their portfolio to 100 in just five years.

The new Salisbury store, located on the Southampton Road Retail Park, has created more than 80 jobs for local people in a welcome boost to the local economy.

Simon Arora, Chief Operating Executive, said: ?We are delighted to reach this milestone at our Garden Centre division, which now has the critical mass to be an important player in the sector.”
