Scotmid Co-op has opened its first ever pop-up garden center. The 1,700 sq ft pop-up launched at its Uddingston store in South Lanarkshire last week in partnership with Caulders Garden Centers.
’Caulders at Scotmid’ offers shoppers an array of gardening goods from 300 lines, including seasonal bedding plants, vegetable plants, houseplants, firepits and chimineas, garden décor, compost and fertilizers.
Employees from Caulders will be managing the pop-up, and are available to offer customers specialist advice on the products and plants for every level of gardener. “As more people have taken up gardening in the past year, we decided to explore how to expand our offer to help nurture a passion for plants,” said Kirsty George, local sourcing manager at Scotmid.
“We sought out Caulders as a partner since they are known for providing a fantastic range and quality to their customers, and we are delighted to work with them to grow our seasonal range in Uddingston.
The 400 sq ft internal set-up has been included as part of Scotmid’s seasonal offer space, while outside it has custom built a secure 1,300 sq ft fenced-off space utilizing a yard that forms part of the store site.
”Now’s the time to get digging and planting – and we hope that bringing our wide range of gardening supplies to Scotmid will help Uddingston’s gardeners get started this spring.”
Caulders at Scotmid is open from 9am to 5pm, seven days a week until 30 June.
