Garden Centres choose Allsorted when they see that the likely result of switching from their current supplier is a significant lift in sales & profits. 

In 2016 Allsorted supplied just 45 centres, and over the last few years this number has more than tripled - now supplying over 143 garden centres.  

We are on a roll because experiences prove that our book solution helps garden centres become even more successful with their gift books and children’s books.  (And we can back this up with lots of testimonials from happy garden centre owners and buyers.) 

Garden Centre Buyers come to us when: 

  • They are concerned that their books offer is being defined by cheap bargain books.
  • When the overall look of their book department is letting them down, and isn't in line with where they are taking their centre.
  • They realise that Allsorted provides display fixturing (these could be included in your trading package) that helps solve the problem of how to display to best effect!
  • They would like the support of a dedicated sales person who will come out to visit as regularly as needed.
  • They want to reduce the administrative burden for themselves, and their team.  One order, one delivery, one invoice, one payment… that all saves valuable time.
  • They want to be sure they have access to a proven of list full price bestsellers that have been successful in other garden centres. 
  • They like the idea of a book range that is much more focused on books as gifts, and for children, rather than a random selection of general books.
  • Allsorted comes with endorsements from trusted owners of other garden centres, and is known as a reliable supplier that delivers on its promises, helps to fix problems, saves valuable time, and delivers more sales.

What's important to you is also important to us at Allsorted

At Allsorted we believe in great quality books that are up to date, relevant and most importantly sell for both our customers and for us. 

We have a comprehensive range of thousands of titles with a growing percentage of books that are only available from Allsorted. Happily, we can report that many of our exclusive titles are also our best sellers in Garden Centres.

Allsorted has great children's books too - our children’s books account for almost half our book sales in Garden Centres! 

Your customers have high expectations of this category when shopping with you for many reasons. Children’s books contribute in many ways to childhood development and shared family experiences through reading together. 

We spend a lot of time getting children’s books right for you and your customers. We like to focus on best quality, well loved books, plus we add new and innovative titles when published to maintain interest for young and old alike.

At Allsorted we understand the importance to keep inventory levels in check. Our display method of full face with limited depth acrylic shelving does just that. In fact, your stock investment can be up to 60% lower than with some suppliers.

Our sales team will call on a pre-agreed visit cycle that ensures the correct level of stock is on show to meet your sales potential and growth objectives.

By using barcode specific ordering histories to plan ranges we are able to maximise sales on your displays. 

They can be tailored in light of sales and local demand taken from our customers' EPOS data. Not pre-determined selections to suit the supplier - but data driven ranges to help maximise your retail sales, manage your stock levels and drive additional profit.

What do our customers say about us?

Caroline Owen - MD - ScotsdaleS Garden Centres

“Allsorted have taken our Gift Books business to a new higher level across all three Scotsdales Centres in the past three years. We value their input and professional management of the Gift Books category which minimises our need to get involved…and would highly recommend them!”

Justin Williams - MD - Fron Goch Garden Centre

"Allsorted work well with us, and continue to develop our Gift Books offer. We find them responsive and analytical with data to look for and drive further sales opportunities for our business at Fron Goch. Our experience has been one of increased sales and profitability since our decision to switch supply from another well established book supplier over 2 years ago”

Barry Doyle - CEO - Arboretum, Ireland

“Allsorted continue to be our primary partner for the Gift Books category at Arboretum. Our range has moved up in both price and quality since we started working together and we value their insights and development plans for this category at Arboretum"

sally cornelisson - director - burleydam garden centre

“ We switched from another well established Book supplier to Allsorted 18 months ago and have not looked back! We value highly their great ranges, professional service, business development skills and day to day management of this category for our business"

adam wigglesworth - md - ayletts nurseries

“Ayletts started working with Allsorted in late 2018, after a long break without this product range in our Garden Centre. We have been looked after very well with an excellent range of books appealing to our customer demographic. There was a seamless installation, replenishment is smooth and most importantly our customers are delighted with the selection”

Carol Cooling - director - coolings green and pleasant ltd

“Allsorted have been our gift book supplier since 2014 and they’ve been fantastic.  We’ve gone from a single gondola to three, with a 2-tier square table and three spinners – our customers just can’t get enough books!  The range of kids’ books is the best we’ve seen, and we’ve sold more of the humorous books for grown-ups than ever before since relocating the stand near the customer cloakrooms; it’s amazing how many gentlemen can be found browsing the books whilst waiting for the rest of their family to return from the loo! Our Top 10 bestsellers always include Allsorted lines, we can’t recommend them highly enough.  If you have a garden centre, you need Allsorted!”
