Case Study

Merryhatton Garden Centre

Posted in: .

West Lothian based Merryhatton Garden Centre has been trading for 15 years and is well-known in the local area.

The business employs up to 37 staff at any one time and stocks all types of indoor & outdoor plants and a wide range of garden accessories and gifts. There is also an onsite coffee shop used by customers to the centre, as well as local mums.

Funding was required for some renovation work of the car park and staffing costs.  The owner had facilities with the bank but they were unwilling to assist any further. This left a funding gap which DSL Business Finance was able to assist with.

“With traditional funding options being increasingly difficult to access, I found it refreshing to speak to people who understand the issues we face as a small business. It was reassuring to find that DSL were interested in supporting our need to progress and develop the business and saw the benefits in doing so.”
