Yorkshire Garden Centres launches new concessions

Yorkshire Garden Centres has launched new concessions at two of its centres.

The Bradford-based group welcomes Edinburgh Woollen Mill to Tong Garden Centre and Pavers and Julian Charles to Tingley Garden Centre. All three have proven success within the group, with Edinburgh Woollen Mill in Otley Garden Centre and Pavers and Julian Charles in Tong Garden Centre.

Edinburgh Woollen Mill’s visual merchandising manager, Debbie Sandell, said: “We have wanted to be in Tong for a long time. It is a fabulous garden centre with a really good reputation. The team are looking forward to working in such a great environment. I’m sure that it will be successful, and it will complement the concession that has moved to a new location in the Otley centre.”

Yorkshire Garden Centres’ commercial director, Sharon McNair, added: “Concessions are an important part of our customers’ experience and we’re very pleased to welcome [the brands]. The three concessions fit well with our business.

“Edinburgh Woollen Mill is one of the UK’s largest clothing retailers, Julian Charles has been delighting customers with British-designed bedding and curtains since 1947, and York-based Pavers is a family-owned-and-run business that was the first major UK shoe retailer to achieve Carbon Neutral International Certification, so it fits well with our sustainable goals. We’re looking forward to helping them to grow their respective businesses.”
