Iconic family business has been sold after 5 decades of trading.

After 56 years, family run Dean’s Garden Centre has been sold. Dating back to 1968, the business now has over 100 employees. The garden centre is currently run by the second generation of the Dean family who have sold to Bradford-based Yorkshire Garden Centres. Managing director Mark Farnsworth says they intend to continue to use the family name for the branch. 

Richard Dean, a partner at Dean’s garden centre, said that he was pleased with the deal as the companies have shared values.
