15 Oct Family run business Perrywood expands into Sudbury
Perrywood Sudbury is now trading in the town, and has already created five new jobs. Sudbury Garden Centre, Newton Road, has changed hands and is now owned by the directors of Essex based Perrywood Garden Centre and Nurseries Ltd. The purchase is an exciting development for Perrywood, one of the UK’s leading garden centres which has been on its original site in Tiptree since the 1950s. Perrywood is operating the new garden centre under the Perrywood brand, and it will be known as ‘Perrywood Sudbury’.
The centre has continued trading since Perrywood took over on 25 September. The team has been focused on improving the offering and bringing a Perrywood feel to the store with ‘how-to’ leaflets, houseplants at the front of the store and more stock including new and improved ranges of bird care, gloves, tools, indoor and outdoor plants (including plants from the Perrywood Grown range) and pots. The restaurant was temporarily closed and is now re-opened as a coffee shop; selling homemade soup, sandwiches and cakes and of course Perrywood’s famous scones.
Perrywood Sudbury will be holding a stock clearance sale from Sat 20 to Sun 28 October which will include stock inherited from the previous owners.
Perrywood has more than 30 years’ experience running its award-winning Tiptree garden centre, which comprises of a plant production nursery, gift and home shop and 260-seater coffee shop and restaurant.
