Squire’s Garden Centres is to create a new garden centre at its Woking site by extending the existing shop and improving the plant area with a new outdoor canopy. There will also be a new Café Bar.
Squire’s deputy chairman Sarah Squire said: “We are very excited about our redevelopment plans for Woking. The project has been a long time in gestation and we are so keen to get started. Next spring you will see a centre that has been transformed yet still remains one hundred percent true to our horticultural heritage, retains its sense of place and is sensitive to its location and the surrounding area.
“There will be an inspirational plant department and a new Café Bar with both indoor and outdoor seating. The indoor space will have a light and airy feel – great for plants and for people. Without giving too much away, we have some really interesting ideas for the look and feel of the interior. We can’t wait to re-open and offer a great range of plants and gardening products to our customers.”
To be able to carry out the works safely, Squire’s in Woking will close to the public from June 18 and it will re-open next Spring. Squire’s offered the much-loved donkeys at Woking a new home at another Squire’s centre nearby, but the owner has decided to re-home them locally.
