Colemans Garden Centre was officially opened by Mayor, Councillor Paul Hamill, at the opening event on Tuesday 24th October 2017.
Providing entertainment at the official opening of the garden centre in Templepatrick were members of Templepatrick Primary School Children’s Choir, who were joined by customers and guests who joined to celebrate the official launch of the new 20,000 square feet site.
Speaking at the official opening on Tuesday 24th October, Richard Fry, Managing Director of Coleman’s Garden Centre, commented;
“It is a real delight to unveil today to the public, our new garden shop and restaurant. Coleman’s Garden Centre has been such a popular and welcoming establishment in the Templepatrick area for half a decade now, and so it is a real privilege to be able to join together with those who have followed its journey for so many years, to usher in the next chapter of Colemans.”
The initial stages of Coleman’s investment project will be followed soon after, by phase two of the renovation plans – an additional 32,000 square feet of retail space in Easter 2018 again under the team at May Estates led by Director Gary Hanna.
“We look forward to seeing all our customers, both old and new, over the coming months, and to the next phase of our development plans. By adding an eclectic mix of exclusive brands, including the Edinburgh Woollen Mill, to our repertoire of products and services, we hope to be able to cater to a wide variety of tastes and to open up the gardening market to a much more diverse audience.”
Russell Simpson, May Estates commented;
“It gives me great pleasure today to be able to officially hand over phase one of this new £5million garden centre. The new retail space, and the new 200 seater restaurant are particularly impressive, and are a real credit to the development teams here at Colemans who have been working hard with us on the renovation plans over the last few months. I look forward to seeing the local community enjoying the new lease of life which has been brought to the centre by this investment project, as is seen so evidently today. I would also to take this opportunity to wish the 100 new members of staff who will be joining the Colemans team over the coming months, all the best in their new positions. Here’s to a fruitful and enjoyable future at Coleman’s Garden Centre.”
