Easter records broken GTN Bestsellers Epos data analysis
Easter trading in 2022 broke all records according to the garden centre Epos data analysed by GTN Bestsellers.
The Easter fortnight in 2022 was 3% higher than Easter 2021, 31% higher than the average for all Easters between 2011 and 2019 and even beat the previous record high recorded by GTN Bestsellers for volume sales in 2011.
That record wasn’t in sight after the first Easter week but last week saw the highest week’s volume sales ever recorded by GTN Bestsellers, even beating the weeks when centres re-opened in 2020 and that memorable week in 2018 when the season finally got going after a long cold and wet spring.
