Dobbies, the UK’s leading garden centre retailer, has today - 11 May - launched a new foodhall offering at its Swindon store with a chance for shoppers to win free groceries.

The foodhall at the store on Hyde Road now brings Waitrose’s wide range of high-quality food, drink, grocery products, and everyday essentials to Dobbies’ customers.

Shoppers can choose from an extensive selection of products including the Essential Waitrose range, the UK’s largest own-label organic food and drink brand - Waitrose Duchy Organic, and No. 1, the very best of Waitrose.

Customers will be able to shop a large range of chilled, frozen and store cupboard essentials from Waitrose, as well as free-from and vegan ranges and an extensive range of wines and spirits.

Swindon is one of more than 45 Dobbies foodhalls across the UK where Waitrose food and drinks are due to be launched and which will bring the supermarket brand to 20 new towns and cities.

Andrew Emery, General Manager at Dobbies Swindon, said: “The foodhall at our store is very popular and the team is really positive about Waitrose being part of the shopping experience for customers.

"Our existing partners will continue to be part of offering, including Lindt, Whittards, the Cook range, as well as our fresh bakery to-go. Waitrose products will be an excellent addition.”

Dobbies are also offering five lucky customers the chance to win their foodhall shopping for free at the Swindon store.

Five shoppers will be selected at random between 11 - 17 May to receive the contents of their foodhall shopping basket. Winners will be selected by the team members at the till point. There are also a limited number of £5 off £25 vouchers available in store.

To find out more about the partnership, members of the public can go online to www.dobbies.com.
