Conwy Valley garden centre sold

by | Sep 15, 2017 | News | 0 comments

A garden centre has been sold with plans for the new owners to invest in the site.

Tal Goed Nurseries, near Glan Conwy, has been running for more than 25 years and is well known in the local area for its plants and popular cafe. Manager John Griffiths said the site would remain a garden centre – quashing “some rumours” the site was closing.

He added: “The new owners – who own the Gift Company – have plans to invest in the site to improve the garden centre and cafe.

“It will remain a garden centre and the current staff will still be here so people will not see any changes to that but we will be in a better working environment.

“The centre will stay open while the changes are made, the cafe may close for a short period after Christmas for that to be revamped.”

Tal Goed had earlier posted a message on Facebook to reassure customers.?It read: “We would like to let our customers know that we are not closing as we know that there have been some rumours, it is true that the business has been sold and and will be changing hands around November time.

“Business will continue as normal and John will still be here as will the rest of us staff members.”

Plans were submitted last year to develop 27 holiday lodges at the site to operate alongside the existing garden centre and cafe businesses.?They say it would secure the businesses at the location – securing and creating 27 jobs.
