Highfield Garden World in Gloucestershire has revealed the business is on track to complete its new restaurant and retail development by the end of February.
 
When finished, the £2.5m development will increase Highfield’s retail space by around 1,500m² to total 5,300m², and will include a new 260-seat waterside restaurant.  World of Water and The Edinburgh Woollen Mill have both run concessions on-site for a number of years, and other brands are under consideration.  
 
Highfield is owned and run by three generations of the Greenway family, who took over the business in 1987. Some 15 jobs have been created as a result of the development, and the Greenways have worked with local suppliers wherever possible throughout the project.
 
Director Tim Greenway said: "This development represents a major investment for us, and we are really enjoying seeing the finished product beginning to take shape in time for the busy Spring/Summer period.  Capitalising on the business’ steady growth over the last 27 years, this feels like a very positive step towards securing an even more successful future for us, our staff, suppliers and customers."
