We’re thrilled to announce that we have won a fabulous industry award for our Christmas displays and product ranges.
This week, we were announced as the North East winner of the GCA’s (Garden Centre Association) Christmas Competition for Destination Garden Centres and we now go forward to the national competition to find the overall winner.
Our co-owner, Mark Farnsworth is naturally delighted: “This is fantastic news for the team and a real stamp of approval from the GCA, who set the standards for excellence in our industry. As new members, this is the first year we have been able to enter, so to win for our first attempt is terrific and a real credit to our hard-working team.”
The judging criteria included product range, merchandising and marketing across categories ranging from trees and giftware to food and our Christmas team were commended for “A strong and professionally executed Christmas offer.”
Sharon McNair, our Commercial Manager with overall responsibility for Christmas, added: “We begin to plan for Christmas in January to ensure we deliver fantastic choice, beautiful displays and a festive experience for our customers and this award is extremely rewarding. We’re really proud of what we’ve achieved.”
