Slaughter and May advised Dobbies Garden Centres on the acquisition of six garden centres from Wyevale Garden Centres.  The centres are located in Woodcote, Gloucester, Heighley Gate, Huntingdon, Woodbridge and Woodlands.  The acquisition strengthens Dobbies Garden Centres’ position as one of the UK’s largest garden centre retailers and brings its estate to 40 centres across the UK.

This follows the acquisition of Dobbies Garden Centres from Tesco Holdings Limited by a group of investors led by Midlothian Capital Partners Limited and Hattington Capital Partners LLP and advised by Slaughter and May in 2016.
