All-In-One Garden Centre has closed its Knutsford branch due to "unsustainable poor financial performance."
Retail operations at the garden centre ceased on July 31, with the restaurant and miniature railway having closed sometime earlier. Bosses issued a statement saying: "It has been a very difficult decision to reach but in such economically challenging times, exasperated by successive poor spring and summer conditions in recent years, we have suffered unsustainable poor financial performance."
Almost all of Knutsford's 25 staff have received redundancy consultation notices. A limited number of staff will be kept on "to support the onsite plant production" at the Knutsford site, as that will continue to supply the business' Middleton store with home grown plants.
The company's Middleton branch is said to be unaffected by the closure.
