Following updated guidance from the Scottish Government that garden centres may open, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, Dobbies Garden Centres, will reopen its Ayr store on Monday 5 April.
The safety of team members and customers remains Dobbies’ number one priority and social distancing measures are already in place to allow the store to operate safely. The restaurant will remain temporarily closed.
Graeme Jenkins, CEO of Dobbies, said: “We welcome this updated guidance from the Scottish Government, enabling us to reopen our stores, including the Ayr store. The safety of our team members and customers remains Dobbies’ number one priority.
“Spring is the time when people want to get back out into their gardens, and with proven health and wellbeing benefits, reopening in Scotland is a positive development.”
As the Ayr store reopens, Foxglove is predicted to be popular with local customers, with Dahlias the most popular plant in store in 2020. With houseplants, Succulents are predicted to be popular this season.
The store will be open 09:00 to 18:00, Monday to Sunday.
