Garden Centre Opportunities..from around the world

John Stanley (international garden centre consultant) and Sid Raisch (USA garden centre consultant) have joined forces to present two zoom workshops to provide ideas and suggestions from around the world in these challenging times.


"Garden centres are on a roller coaster at present. In some countries,they are looked at as non essential retail operations and being forced to close whilst in other countries sales are well up on average as they are seen as essential retailers," writes John Stanley.

"What are the short term opportunities for garden retailers ?


"The first zoom session will be held at 8.00pm Western Australian time on Wednesday 8th April. Meeting ID: 777-035-476.

"We realize getting a time that is convenient for all our global colleagues is a challenge.


"We hope you can join us and share this with colleagues"


On Saturday John will load the presentation onto "John Stanley's Gathering" Facebook page and early next week it will also go onto webpage so business owners and managers can absorb the ideas when they have available time.
