format store

Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, today (Thursday 22 October) announces the development of its first small format store – Little Dobbies.


Little Dobbies, which will be located on Raeburn Place in Edinburgh and is scheduled to open in November, is the first of its kind for the retailer that has 68 garden centres across the UK.


The core of the Little Dobbies’ offer will be horticulturally focused with a range of convenience gardening products. This will be complemented by a carefully curated range featuring houseplants and pots; a small range of
gifts; and selected seasonal ranges. For opening, the seasonal ranges will feature Christmas items, including decorations, wreaths and hampers.

There will also be a coffee shop, offering hot and cold drinks, as well as takeaway food.


Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: “This is an exciting new venture for our team, as we launch the first Little Dobbies. The store will feature gardening essentials for city centre residents and will showcase some of the
extensive ranges available at our larger stores and at dobbies.com
“Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the project and we can’t wait to open the doors of Little Dobbies in November.”

Opening hours for Little Dobbies are Monday to Friday, 10:00 -18:00; Thursday 10:00-19:00; Saturday and Sunday
09:00-18:00.
