Prosper Buying Group adds another new member

by | Jun 26, 2023 | Business, News | 0 comments

St Peters Garden Centre has joined the Prosper Buying Group today, following last week’s announcement of Barton Grange, Cowells and the Yorkshire Garden Centres group joining Prosper.

This aligns with the group’s strategic growth plan to add award-winning centres to their membership.

Terry Head, Stewarts Retail & Marketing Director and Chairman of Prosper, said: “At our strategic meeting earlier in the year, we highlighted some of the top UK garden centres who would bring charisma, fun and a huge amount of experience to the group.

“To now have some of those joining at a pivotal point in the season is amazing. We are excited about how we can grow together and continue this joint venture.”

William Blake, Managing Director of St Peters said: “We are excited to join some of the most highly respected garden centres in the UK by signing up to the Prosper Buying Group.

“Leaving the Choice Marketing & Buying Group is not a decision we took lightly. We were founding members since its creation in 2002 and owe a huge amount to Choice and its members. We felt the time was right for a change and look forward to learning, developing, and growing with the Prosper Buying Group.”
