Atkinson closes garden centre

Published:  13 August, 2010

PENRITH: JT Atkinson has closed the Penrith branch of its home and garden centre in Ullswater Road after a decline in its customer numbers and an increase in competition.

Two of the centre's 13 staff will move to the builders' merchants' operation on the same site. The closure follows a two-week consultation period and a closing down sale began at the centre this week.
