Garden centre to be launched at Deepdale with free beer and burgers on Father's Day

Deepdale Country Stores in Barton-upon-Humber is launching its garden centre with a free pint of beer and a burger on Father's Day next month (21 June).

Deepdale is developing its garden centre side and using Kadai fire bowls for the beer-and-burger promotion.

The centre is putting in 20,000 plants it what will be a 4,500sq m garden centre.

It also has a new café and sells equestrian, hardware, country wear, wild bird, smallholding and pet food.

Garden centre consultant Doug Stewart is behind the beer-and-burger idea. The store’s owner is Bill Faulding.

Stewart said many retailers run Mothering Sunday promotions but few do as much on Father’s Day. He pointed out that the price of a barrel of beer is around £70 so the cost of the promotion would not be too high.
