Garden Centre Group aims to attract motorway services drivers

The Garden Centre Group is promoting its restaurants as "the perfect alternative to motorway services".

Garden CentreGroup’s website includes a map of where each garden centre is in relation to motorways.

A GCG representative said: "It's vital for your safety and sanity (especially if travelling with young children) to rest and recharge your batteries on a long journey. We can offer you a relaxing stop that's infinitely preferable to the average motorway service station. We have listed our garden centres which are close to motorways and major routes. They are all dog friendly and at any one of them, you can be assured of a warm welcome and delicious home-made food.

GCG also recommended the quality of its coffee, loos, dogwalking facilities, Wifi, outdoor areas and playareas, as well as retail offer.
