Langlands Honoured in GCA Awards 2016

gca-2016-300x225We are happy to report some great news about the recent GCA Awards from Langlands this month. The Garden Centre Association have presented our Loxley Garden Centre with GCA Award for "The Midlands Area Most Improved Garden Centre".

This is simply because of all the hard work and skill of our entire team of staff members.

The Garden Centre Association judges members on several key success factors. These range from great customer service and product range to high environmental standards and creativity. The GCA only gives awards to the very best Garden Centres in the group. We are thrilled, because Loxley have achieved so much in such a short time.

"The staff have always loved this little centre, and the customers, and we work hard to provide great customer service, great plant knowledge and some stunning displays" says Rachel Shaw, Assistant Manager at Langlands Loxley. "We have always enjoyed recognition for our hard work, and we all strive to have happy customers and healthy plants. With our addition to the Langlands family, we aim to keep improving. The GCA Award for "Most Improved Garden Centre" is proof of all the hard work and love our staff put into this quirky little gem."

Additionally, the Garden Centre Association has presented our Shiptonthorpe Centre with lots of GCA Awards in the North East Area category. These include the award for "Best Outdoor Lifestyle Retailer", and "Best Garden Centre Restaurant". This reflects the high standards that Langlands always aims for.
