Wyevale sells Worthing Ferring Garden Centre to Cobbins Nursery


Wyevale Garden Centres today announced the sale of Worthing Ferring to Cobbins Nursery Ltd, who will continue to run the site as a garden centre.

George Lisher, CEO at Cobbins Nursery, said: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to expand our business through the acquisition of the neighbouring Worthing Ferring Wyevale Garden Centre. Cobbins Nursery is a fourth generation family run business specialising in the production of houseplants and pot bedding and we look forward to both businesses working together."

As the business has reduced in size over the course of the sales process, WGC also confirms today that it will cease delivering products through its Central Distribution Centre in Milton Keynes in the autumn, and will move to a predominantly direct to centre delivery model, for its remaining centres.

Anthony Jones, Chief Operating Officer at Wyevale Garden Centres said: "We are pleased to have agreed the sale of Worthing Ferring and wish our great colleagues all the best under new ownership. I'd also like to thank XPO and their colleagues at the Milton Keynes Central Distribution Centre for their high quality third party logistics service over the last 3 years as we now transition to a predominantly direct delivery model."
