Selby centre's extension set to double turnover in 5 years
Work has started on an extension to Selby Garden Centre in Yorkshire that will double its turnover over the next five years and return it to profitability.
MD Mark Noble chose Chris Primett of Malcolm Scott Consultants to prepare plans for 40,634 sq ft of additional space. The £1.5m development includes a 250-seat restaurant, a new 17,000 sq ft open sales area, shop refurbishment and 70 extra parking spaces.
Chris Primett said the existing site was too small to be profitable; the enlarged retail footprint would allow the business to more than double its sales.
