Auctioneers handling the sale of Garsides Garden Centre in Failsworth, Greater Manchester, say there has been lots of interest in the property, which has a guide price of £345,000 plus.
The garden centre is in a prominent location on Oldham Road in Failsworth and is being sold due to retirement. It is expected to attract interest as a potential development site.
Andy Thompson, senior valuer of SDL Auctions North West, said: “Currently this is a well-established, family-owned and run garden centre with adjacent living accommodation. It is on a central location on the main arterial route into Manchester city centre, only two miles away.
“The options are to purchase it with a view to continuing with the current use as a garden centre where a successful business has been running for over 50 years.
“But the site is being sold with vacant possession and we are seeing a lot of interest from developments who recognise, subject to planning permission, the potential the site has.
“This is a quirky lot where viewing is essential to appreciate the full picture and envisage the possibilities.”
SDL Auctions North West’s next auction is on Monday, July 23, at the AJ Bell Stadium, Salford.
