BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley and ITV’s This Morning Daisy Payne open new Dobbies in Gloucestershire

A BBC legend has opened Gloucestershire’s largest garden centre. 

Broadcaster and Dobbies’ ambassador, Jo Whiley, today (Thursday, November 3) officially opened Dobbies’ newest store at Tewkesbury.

Jo was joined by ITV This Morning’s gardening presenter, Daisy Payne, the Mayor of Tewkesbury Borough, Councillor John Murphy and Dobbies’ team members along with a range of key people from across the region and those involved in the project to celebrate the launch of Dobbies’ new flagship store.

School children and charity representatives were among the first through the doors of the new store.

Jo Whiley said: “I’ve had a fantastic time opening Dobbies’ newest store.

“With such a diverse range of products, from plants and gardening, to homeware and pets, there’s something for all members of the family, which will make it a brilliant day out.”

Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard:

Spanning 70,000 sq ft, the Tewkesbury store represents one of Dobbies’ biggest garden centres and as well as creating around 100 jobs for local and neighbouring communities. 

It is expected to serve more than 750,000 customers each year – underlining the company’s ongoing growth across the UK.

The launch comes just in time for Christmas, with the new store featuring Dobbies’ full festive product range.

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 are available in the car park. 

Graeme Jenkins, CEO at Dobbies Garden Centres, said: “As our biggest store in the Southwest, the opening of Dobbies’ Tewkesbury is an important and exciting milestone, and we look forward to being part of vibrant and visionary upcoming retail destination as the Cotswolds Designer Outlet develops.

“I would like to thank everyone involved in bringing the store to fruition for all their hard work and we hope our customers will enjoy the exceptional shopping experience that Dobbies’ Tewkesbury will offer.

“We also look forward to building on our work in the local community, having already starting supporting Ashchurch Primary School with a new vision for their garden and supplying great value products from the store.”
