It's a record November for sales - GTN Bestsellers Epos Analysis


A stunning last week’s trading in November, which was the ninth highest week for volume sales of the year, meant the month finished 11% up on last year and 7% higher than the previous November record set in 2017. 


Despite everything that is going on at the moment this just proves the popularity of garden centres as leisure shopping destinations.

Christmas of course played its part in that overall record with last week’s GTN Bestsellers Top 50 sales volumes reaching the highest weekly total in any of the last 10 years of Epos data analysis.



GTN Bestsellers Top 50 sales volumes compared to the same week last year (week 48)

  • Garden Products - up 23%
  • Growing Media - up 23%
  • Wild Bird Care - up 14%
  • Christmas - up 6%
  • All Plants Index - up 17%
  • All Items Index - up 5%
