British Garden Centres revamps e-commerce store

by | May 9, 2023 | Business, News | 0 comments

British Garden Centres has revamped its new e-commerce store “to service nationwide gardeners’ demand and capitalise on the ever-growing online market”.

The family-owned garden centre group said, “BGC is always looking for new ways to connect with the next generation of gardeners. Through this online shopping experience, we’re offering consumers a new platform to order everything they would love for the outdoors without leaving their homes.”

“With 62 well-established garden centres nationwide, the web team take great pride in sourcing and offering a wide range of products to bring your garden to life. Our small and dedicated web team ensure our customers’ needs are at the heart of the website, delivering a personal service to get your product safely to your door.”

The website can be used to search for gardening and home products sold at BGC via keywords or categories. The e-commerce store will link to BGC blogs that offer recommendations, seasonal style tips and gift ideas, and advice on getting the best out of your garden.

Amy Stubbs, project and development manager at British Garden Centres said: “The launch of our revamped e-commerce store is the latest step to British Garden Centres becoming the market-leading, family-run garden centre brand and enhancing the consumer’s shopping experience. The e-commerce store will be a one-stop, comprehensive online destination designed to connect gardeners with everything they could need for their outdoors and is available for shopping at any time of the day or night. It is an exciting milestone for the group and will accelerate our digital growth journey.”
