Dobbies chief executive James Barnes said:
"It is with regret today that I announce our decision to close Dobbies Garden Centre on Paisley’s Hawkhead Road on 31st December 2011.
"Unfortunately there has been very little demand for our smaller centre in Paisley since the opening of our nearby Braehead Garden World in February this year. At the time we made the decision to keep our Paisley centre open as a smaller centre focusing on horticulture. We felt that it was a valued garden centre to people in Paisley however there simply hasn't been the demand we anticipated.
"Our 32 staff at Paisley are our utmost priority and have been fully informed of the situation. We have entered into a consultation process with our Paisley team and hope to retain as many of our staff members as possible by offering relocation to other Dobbies centres."
