Hillview acquires its eleventh garden centre

Published: 6 February 2017 - Jenny Wonnacott

The Hillview Garden Centre group has bought out Shipley Garden Centre in Derbyshire, bringing its total number of centres to 11.

Shipley Garden Centre was run by the Beale family for nearly 30 years before the acquisition was completed on January 26. Hillview Garden Centres ceo Boyd Douglas-Davies said, “It’s a great centre and fits well with our existing stores.”

The centre was run by Colin Beale alongside his son Jamie, daughter Louise and son-in-law Phil. Mr Douglas-Davies continued, “Colin, his family and team have created a thriving business which is undoubtedly the locals favourite garden centre. I’m looking forward to working with the team to help the centre develop further and benefit from the advantages of being part of a group.”

Hillview's managing director Nadav Livni added, “This is an exciting new addition for Hillview Garden Centres and continues the growth path of our Group through selective acquisitions.

I am pleased by the successful execution of our long-term strategy to establish a portfolio of 'local champion' garden centres, which offer our customers a retail destination experience, with an appealing product mix and friendly knowledgeable staff.

We continually invest to upgrade our stores and add exciting new Soft Play Barns for children with their own cafes and party rooms. We believe this is a unique sector that can provide a rewarding, multi-generational family experience with seasonal attractions throughout the year.”
