Improving your local centre

Improving your Local Centre

Over the next few weeks, we have some exciting renovation works taking place at Coolings The Gardener’s Garden Centre in Knockholt.

Our seasonal plant area is a highlight for many customers, but over the years, general wear and tear of the flooring has resulted in an uneven surface.

To create a smoother shopping experience, we are replacing the 1400sq.m area of existing paving slabs with new paving blocks.

These new blocks will result in a non-slip surface, as well as being hard wearing and easier to maintain.

We are joining forces with a local company to install a canopy over the area, which will become an extension of the current canopy.

While clearing the site, everything we dig up will be sent away for recycling and we will continue to collect rainwater from our roofs and pipe it into our two reservoirs onsite.

We are committed to our environmental pledge and are confident that every step we take brings us closer to becoming one of the ‘greenest’ retailers in the UK.

The new and improved area will be finished in January – just in time for our Early Bird Sale – so keep your eyes peeled for some incredible offers across all our sites.

In the meantime, we will provide renovation updates to keep you informed of the project’s progress.

We are excited to see the start of our plant area renovations take place on Monday 23rd November 2020.
