Who doesn’t love a beautifully cultivated garden? In fact, the UK boasts twice as many garden centres as McDonalds, so that is a good indication of the British gardening passion. UK garden centres are renowned for their beauty and practicality, and among the best of them is the network of British Garden Centres founded by two green-thumbed Lincolnshire brothers and still a family business. From building and landscaping supplies, plants and furniture, gifts and the deliciously enticing Gardners Retreat Restaurant, British Garden Centres have something for everyone, from your vegan sister to grandma and grandad.
British Garden Centres have grown substantially in the past few years, and to keep ahead of that growth, systems and technology had to be top priority. The company had been working with Fidelity Systems for some time so naturally turned to them to rollout new EPoS systems across all their newly acquired centres. The Fidelity systems work seamlessly across retail and hospitality so are a perfect fit for garden centres. With the project needing to be rolled out to multiple centres in a very short timeframe, Fidelity turned to Oxhoo for support with some of the hardware.
“We knew working with Oxhoo kit would deliver exactly what British Garden Centres wanted and needed: robust equipment that could last the test of time. The fact that the Oxhoo screens also look great in their beautiful centres and restaurants is another big bonus.” Sam Sharpless
Fidelity and Oxhoo share many core business values—the most important being their passion to grow along with customers, providing service and support that enables organisations of any size to reach their development goals.
“We were thrilled to work with Fidelity on the British Garden Centres installation. Throughout the project we were consistently impressed with Fidelity’s innovative approach, and we look forward to continuing our partnership.” Sarah Appleby, Oxhoo UK Sales and Operations Manager
