Dobbies/Tesco planned for East Kilbride

East Kilbride near Glasgow is set for a joint Dobbies Garden Centre/Tesco.

A public exhibition will be held next month before a detailed ­planning application is lodged with South ­Lanarkshire Council.

Tesco representative Adam ­Williams, from Tesco, said: "Customers will be able to access both the Tesco store and Dobbies through a single entrance, joined by the popular Dobbies restaurant at the front of the store."

Dobbies property director Stuart Wright added: "Our plans for East Kilbride brings a new-generation retail and garden centre to the area which will not only offer quality, range and value to customers who love their home and garden; but also a unique day-out destination for all the family to enjoy."

Dobbies owner, Tesco, opened a joint store with the garden centre at Kings Lynn in October.
