Daisy Nook Garden Centre is up for sale

On the facebook page of Oldhams oldest garden centre is posted:


We wanted to share some news -

After an amazing 52 years we are advertising the garden centre for sale - although we expect to be here a while yet!

Richard Calder,76, company chairman said: “We have loved running the centre and getting to know so many loyal customers however we don’t have another, younger, generation of the family wanting to take it on so it’s inevitable that we offer the business for sale. We are advertising it as a ‘going concern’ and hope very much to find a buyer who will continue and develop the business and ensure that our wonderful team of staff stay here. We’re advised that this won’t be a quick process, so we’ll be around for quite a while yet, I’m sure.”

We will be running the business as normal until such time as a new owner takes over."


Specialist business property adviser, Christie & Co, has been instructed to market the popular Daisy Nook Garden Centre in Failsworth, Greater Manchester, as the current owners look to retire after more than 50 years in business.


Set opposite Daisy Nook country park, the garden centre occupies almost five acres and has been owned by the Calder family for over half a century. The site has grown considerably since it was first opened in 1972 and now sells a wide variety of indoor and outdoor plants, goods and clothing. The site also features a 98 cover café with an outdoor terrace overlooking river.


The sale is being handled by Andrew Birnie, Director – Retail & Leisure at Christie & Co. He comments, “We’re delighted to have been instructed to sell Daisy Nook Garden Centre on behalf of the Calder family, who have built a fantastic garden centre business over the past 50 plus years. With an enviable location next to Daisy Nook Country Park and space to extend and add concessions, this sale represents a fantastic opportunity, and we look forward to finding a suitable owner to take the business forward.”


A search of the Christie & Co website reveals 27 Garden Centre business opportunities currently for sale.
