6 . 11 . 18
The Rosebourne team is pleased to announce the purchase of Wyevale at Hampton-in-Arden, near Solihull, in the West Midlands.
The sale, which was completed on Friday, November 2, includes seven acres of leasehold and two acres of freehold with the potential to develop.
The site is well known to the management team, having been run by Rosebourne executive director Jon Kitching, as Blooms of Bressingham, before it was taken over by Wyevale.
Managing Director of Rosebourne, Neville Prest, is delighted with the acquisition. He said: “This is a fantastic site for us to develop – it certainly has a lot of potential. It will initially be run as a unique, stand-alone garden centre before we can examine the prospect of incorporating it into the Rosebourne family brand.
“We’re pleased to inherit a good team of staff and are looking forward to investigating the exciting possibilities for our third Rosebourne base.”
Rosebourne currently has two branches in the UK. Its first store in Weyhill, Hampshire, opened two years ago, followed by the recent launch of Rosebourne in Aldermaston, Berkshire, in October.
Rosebourne prides itself on giving visitors a relaxed and pleasurable shopping experience in a light, airy and upmarket setting. Offering great quality for great value, Rosebourne has created a unique environment that combines the freshness of a garden centre along with the charm of a farm shop and uplifting appeal of a buzzing restaurant.
