We’d like to thank all our customers who came throughout last week and the weekend to Riverside. It was great to re-open and everyone seemed delighted to be able to shop at the garden centre again. Everybody was also very understanding and co-operative with the systems we had to put in place to safeguard peoples health. We appreciate it!
Changes to Opening Times
Having now had an opportunity to reflect on our first week we have decided to stay with the 5 day-a-week opening for now so we will continue to close on a Tuesday and Wednesday. We have also decided to return to our usual (shorter) opening hours to make more staff available all day. Our opening hours from Thursday 21st May are:
Monday 9.30 – 5.00
Thursday 9.30 – 5.00
Friday 9.30 -5.00
Saturday 9.30 – 5.00
Sunday 10.30 – 4.30
After 7 weeks of closure and an exceptional 5 days of trade the garden centre is understandably low on stock. We have been working since we had the go-ahead to open, to get as much stock as possible but this is still a challenge. We have made extremely large orders this week which are due from Wednesday onward but please be aware that some plants and products will not arrive until nearer the weekend and that there is a national shortage of some plants and products.
We assure you we are doing our very best to get everything we can as soon as we can.
It’s great to back and we look forward seeing you all again soon.
