Charles, Amy and Libby Stubbs welcome the Harrogate centre and their customers to the family. Amy Stubbs led the project from start to finish.
BGC were delighted with trade on the first day. "As the team had worked late into the night on Friday we chose to not say anything online about the opening. Over the last couple of weeks we have had potential customers stopping at the site every single day so we were confident that we would be busy enough once the signs changed on the roadside," reported BGC's Boyd Douglas-Davies.
"Last weekend we handed out 4,800 leaflets at the Harrogate Spring Essentials (Flower Show) to the public promoting the new centre and the wider group. The voucher on the leaflet started to appear yesterday, which is great."
Charles added: "Huge thanks to all of our suppliers, both growers and manufacturers for finding us a garden centres worth of stock at the busiest time of year. The merchandising teams have been fantastic and worked alongside our team to create the centre really quickly."
"BGC colleagues have helped from all areas of the business and coped with the short time frame and some appalling weather. Thank you to them all."
