MITRE 10 DUNEDIN'S STANDALONE GARDEN CENTRE

By NZHJ May 26, 2016 Industry news

Martin Dippie has opened a standalone garden and landscape centre right beside his Mitre 10 MEGA in Dunedin.

The store’s expanded garden & landscaping offering also features a drive-through bulk product and pickup area with express parking – a Mitre 10 first and possibly an NZ first.

Store owner and Mitre 10 Chairman, Martin Dippie, says the new centre is completely self-contained and has an exciting range of features.

“The garden and landscaping centre has its own entrance, checkouts and café, and is staffed by a dedicated team who have a wealth of experience in landscaping, horticulture and gardening.”

Features of the new centre include a shed village, glasshouse displays, an extended range of plants and professional gardening tools, and a drive-through bulk product area with express parking.

“We have essentially created a trade yard for landscaping and outdoor DIY supplies,” says Martin Dippie.

Interesting to note that, back in 1974 it was Martin Dippie’s father who opened Dunedin’s first drive-to garden centre.
