Hillier takes over Hurrans centreNursery chain acquires centre in Banbury, Oxfordshire following Hurrans' demise after 100 years of trading.
Hillier's managing director Andy McIndoe is excited about the new centre.
Hillier Nurseries has taken over Hurrans' Banbury centre. The five-strong garden centre chain went into administration in late January, closing three of its stores. The two remaining centres - Banbury and West Hagley - were to be sold as going concerns.
Hillier managing director, Andy McIndoe told Horticulture Week: "It's a good move for us because the centre is between our centres at Newbury and Redditch. We're establishing a new lease with the landlord. We're excited about it. It's a petite centre but we do have smaller sites so it suits us."
The new branch will join Hillier's 13-strong network of garden centres across the UK.
