Dobbies opens third high street garden centre

Garden centre chain Dobbies has today opened another 'little dobbies' store.

Located on Westbourne Grove in London, this will be the third of its kind to open in the UK, following the success of two other small format stores in Edinburgh and Bristol.

The store will bring Dobbies' store portfolio to 72 across the UK, including one in Gloucester and Cirencester. Number 73 is also in the pipeline and will become little dobbies Chiswick.

Little dobbies Westbourne Grove is said to be horticulturally focused, offering a range of houseplants, convenience and sustainable gardening products and a range of selected gifts and seasonal products.

Dobbies added that educational point of sale will provide an enhanced customer experience, with top tips on what houseplants will work where and how to look after them.

Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: "As we open our third little dobbies, we are proud to see our ambitious plans for growth coming to fruition, and the little dobbies format going from strength to strength.

"We were able to discuss this development and more today when our team met with Environment Minister at our store at Woodcote Green.

"A huge thank you to everyone who has been involved with this project."

Opening hours for little dobbies Westbourne Grove are 7am to 7pm, seven days a week.
