Three Garden Centres in Top 50 Retail Stores


Three garden centres made the top 50 stores in the Retail Excellence Ireland Awards 2011. Orchard Home & Garden has been placed at 12 while Griffin's Garden Centre comes in at number 31 and Arboretum Lifestyle & Garden Centre takes the number 36 spot.


The Orchard is an awardwinning destination lifestyle centre with five departments spanning Home, Garden, Outdoor Living, Pet and Aqua and the Orchard Cafe, set inside an old Victorian walled garden. More than just a retail outlet, The Orchard is a destination enjoyed by many. “Our building is just fi ve years old but set on a beautifully maintained site,” says Margaret Rowland, Retail Manager. “People do tell us that they visit us because being here makes them happy, even if they’re just having a coffee and relaxing.”

Part of what makes The Orchard so inviting is the stunning ways in which the products are displayed. “We have been putting a lot of energy and thought into visual merchandising because customers respond to a beautiful display. Online shopping is great, but we encourage people to actually come into our store to see the products for themselves. We work hard at trend forecasting and supplying cutting edge designs.”
