Dobbies is the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, with 75 stores across the UK and over 4,000 team members.
Spanning 70,000 sq ft, the Tewkesbury store is one of Dobbies biggest garden centres and the largest in the southwest. It is expected to serve more than 750,000 customers each year and has created in the region of 100 jobs for local and neighbouring communities.
The purpose-built store features heating and lighting generated by efficient low carbon energy technologies while rainwater harvesting has been incorporated for plant irrigation and all timber used in the fitout is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. EV charging points will be available in the car park and through the “Too Good to Go” food surplus scheme, Dobbies saves fresh surplus food that would typically be wasted.
The new Dobbies store is the first phase of a major development, brought together by Robert Hitchins Ltd, which also includes the forthcoming Cotswolds Designer Outlet, expected to open in 2024, and 1,310 homes being built to the south. The whole development is sited in a prime location at J9 of the M5 and close to Ashchurch for Tewkesbury train station.
In providing the lighting for the store, Dexretail worked with contractor ISG Retail and consultant Troup Bywaters & Anders.
