Stonemarket opens at Chessington Garden Centre in Surrey

Stonemarket has opened a new patio and driveway display centre at Chessington Garden Centre in Surrey.

As well as opening at Chessington Garden Centre last week, Stonemarket, a Marshalls company, is also revamping its centres at Russells Garden Centre in Coventry and Whitacre Garden Centre, near Coleshill, Warwickshire.

Marshalls closed five of its six patio and driveway centres "because of economic conditions" in recent months but plans to revamp its Falkirk centre.

Marshalls representative Jeremy Marshall said: "We chose Chessington because of its excellent record of customer service, reputation and stock, and it is in an ideal location close to the M25. Stonemarket is supporting independent garden centres and builders' merchants."
