Hampsons Plant World helped by Fordingbridge to improve kerb appeal

by | Jun 28, 2017 | News | 0 comments

Fordingbridge recently completed their latest project at Hampsons Plant World, creating a five bay entrance and exit canopy which added an additional 532m2 sales area, as well as vastly improved Hampson?s kerb appeal. The canopy provides a covered plant sales area as customers enter the garden centre directly from the car park, and increases time spent by customers by making the environment more comfortable in all weathers, resulting in an immediate increase in footfall and turnover for the business.

Fordingbridge also installed a 12 x 19m extension canopy to form part of Hampsons’ caf? refurbishment, enhancing the seating area by 228m2 and creating the perfect conditions for alfresco dining. Since installation, Hampsons has experienced a turnover increase in both plant sales and the restaurant.

Alan Hampson, owner of Hampsons Plant World said:??Working with Fordingbridge has been an easy process from design to installation. As a direct result of the canopies recently installed by Fordingbridge, I have already seen an uplift in footfall and an increase in turnover in both plant sales and the restaurant. I would definitely recommend Fordingbridge as a company to work with to improve your business.?
