by | Apr 8, 2022 | Chains, News | 0 comments

British Garden Centres, the family-owned, Lincolnshire based garden centre business has made it a hat-trick of new centres this year with its taking over of Hatton Garden Centre in Warwickshire.

The garden centre is a key part of the award-winning Hatton Country World and Adventure World shopping and tourist attraction in the heart of Warwickshire. Just five miles from Warwick Castle and minutes from J15 of the M40 the new centre makes a perfect addition to the British Garden Centres family, says the group.

Amy Stubbs, daughter of co-founder Charles Stubbs, says: “It is wonderful to be partnering with the team at Hatton Country World. Our experience as the UK’s largest family-led garden centre group tells us that this will be a fantastic garden centre. It will complement our existing Warwickshire centres at Studley, Charlecote, Newton Regis and Coventry.”

She adds: “We are on-site carrying out the first phase of improvements and interviewing to fill a number of vacancies in both the garden centre and restaurant. All being well, and weather allowing, we will open at Easter, or certainly very soon after.”

Hatton Garden Centre will generate 30+ new roles. Further details can be found here.
