With January 2020 covering a five week reporting period we can now confirm that it has been a record start to the year, beating the previous high set in 2019 by 16%.
Whilst that is a great omen for the rest of the year we should remember that January sales only account for 6% of the years total sales, so we should be careful about making predictions for the rest of Spring just yet.
The really good thing, however, is that with volume sales being so high more people have been choosing to visit and spend money in garden centres during the first five weeks of the year than ever before. If that continues… watch this space!
