The new pilot programme will be rolled out across Dobbies Garden Centres in Edinburgh (Melville), Aberdeen, Dundee, Ayr and Glasgow (Braehead), all of which will feature STIHL’s new Point of Sale system.
Dobbies’ Melville store was the first to unveil the STIHL range as of 15 September 2017.
STIHL GB managing director Robin Lennie said: "We're delighted to announce this new pilot programme in five of Dobbies' stores. Whilst the demand for STIHL cordless products is at an all time high, we are committed to working with retail partners who not only offer a high quality shopping environment, but also well-trained staff to provide advice and support to our customers."
Dobbies purchasing director Andrew West said: "We are thrilled to launch such an exciting new partnership with STIHL, the world's leading brand in garden power tools. Dobbies' discerning customers are keen to see brands like STIHL in our stores and we're excited with this development."
