Their new destination garden centre will be twice as large as their present shop, with an area of 12,000 m2. It will form part of a large new retail and leisure centre incorporating various other shops, a restaurant and a gym.
The new garden centre will be built 200 metres from the present shop, which will remain in business until the new premises are opened. Thermoflor will start work at the site in August, so that all the operations will be completed before December.
Because of the local weather conditions (extremely hot summers, very cold winters) the garden centre has a relatively short season. A combination with entertainment activities ensures that the building can be used all the year round. Part of the greenhouse area is emptied for a few months a year to allow it to be used as an indoor go-kart circuit.
