Eljays44’s second longest-running magazine Garden Centre Retail turns five in March this year.
It’s now established as the best source of news and information in the garden retail sector.
Garden Centre Retail’s success follows the Eljays44 blueprint. It offers informative, inspiration and educational content. Topics such as HR, marketing and technology have all featured recently.
Over recent months, it’s also focused on daily digital content, taking page views to over 6,000 per month.
In print, Garden Centre Retail has had content on recruitment, wildlife and children’s gardening. These topics, as well as concessions and trading laws, means it’s at the top of its game.
GCR is celebrating it’s 5th anniversary over the next coming months. It has a special feature in the next issue, and cakes will be available for the audience at the first ever GCR Live in April.
Joe Wilkinson, editor of Garden Centre Retail is proud of what the brand is achieving. “We’ve had a great 18 months. 2019 sees an increase in magazines published, and a drive towards online content.
“It’s such an exciting, inspiring industry. There’s no qualms about sharing information and the people in the market are always keen to talk.
“I’ve had so much fun driving our online content, pushing page views to figures we weren’t predicting to see for at least another year!
“I’m looking forward to the next 5 years and beyond!”
This year is sure to be the best yet for the brand. Not only is it the 5th anniversary, but Garden Centre Retail is producing 10 issues and two GCR Live events. It’s the first time Garden Centre Retail has attempted this format.
The signs are there for another record breaking year.
