Former Arthur Gent site re-furbished and re-stocked
NWF Group has opened its sixth garden centre in its portfolio at Ashton Park, Tameside, Greater Manchester.

The centre will serve the whole of the Ashton and Manchester area via the adjacent M60.

Ashton Park is a large garden centre with 30,000 sq ft of heated retail space and parking for 170 cars.

The centre cost £3.5 million to build and has been furnished with £0.5 million of stock in plants, furniture, gifts and locally sourced produce. It has 80 employees.

In July 2006, NWF acquired Arthur A Gent & Sons Ltd, a garden centre company, just outside Manchester for £0.25 million.

Graham Scott, chief executive of NWF, said in a statement: "We acquired a prime location within a fast growing retail area, and through an entirely new build we have constructed the most complete garden centre facility in the locality."
