Dobbies Garden Centres, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, has opened a new look foodhall in Ponteland. This new wholesale partnership with Sainsbury’s brings a range of high-quality food and grocery products to the store.

Shoppers at Dobbies’ Ponteland can now enjoy a range which includes over 3,000 products, giving customers a choice of food to take home including ambient, chilled, fresh and frozen produce as well as other grocery, household and toiletry products.

Graeme Jenkins, CEO of Dobbies, said: “It is fantastic to see our new look foodhall open in Ponteland, with a diverse range of Sainsbury’s products now available for customers. This new food and grocery offer complements our garden centre ranges, providing convenience and a wide product selection for our customers.

“A big thank you to everyone who has worked hard to bring this partnership to fruition. We hope customers enjoy our new look foodhall at the Ponteland store.”

Dobbies is offering five lucky customers the chance to win their foodhall shopping for free at the Ponteland store. Five shoppers will be selected at random between Tuesday 3 and Monday 9 November to receive the contents of their foodhall shopping basket. Winners will be selected by the team members at the till point throughout the week.

The store is open 08:00 to 19:00 Monday to Friday, 08:00 to 18:00 Saturday, 10:30 to 16:30 Sunday with social distancing measures in place.
