England’s first Little Dobbies store opens its doors

by | Mar 23, 2021 | Chains, News | 0 comments

Dobbies Garden Centres has opened a brand new format store in Bristol – Little Dobbies.

Located on Whiteladies Road, Clifton, this is the second little dobbies to open in the UK, following the success of the debut store which launched in Edinburgh in November 2020. Bolstering the Dobbies portfolio, this takes the total to 70 Dobbies’ stores across the UK. 

Little Dobbies Clifton’s core offering is horticulturally focused with a carefully curated range of convenience gardening products, ideal for those in urban areas with a compact gardening space. This is complemented by a range featuring houseplants and pots; a small selection of gifts; and selected seasonal ranges. For opening, spring and summer products will feature including bulbs, seeds and gardening tools. Freshly-ground takeaway coffee is also available.

Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies, said: “This is an exciting new venture for our team, as we expand our little dobbies offering into Bristol. The store features gardening essentials for urban residents and showcases some of the extensive ranges available at our larger stores and online at dobbies.com.

“We hope that residents in Clifton enjoy shopping at little dobbies. I’d like to thank everyone who has contributed to the project.”
