I wanted to follow up on London Stones recent announcement about opening up our second showroom in Kent. We have been searching for a second showroom for the last 2 years. We came really close to getting one this time last year but we had a change of heart on the location. This location in Kent is really appealing to us for a couple of reasons. One is the garden centre itself. Its a very professionally run garden centre and after in depth discussions with the owners we felt that they shared our business values and our visions for the future. Also, although London have a great online presence all across London and the home counties we did not have a great physical presence in the South East.
Here are a couple of photos of Cooling garden centre
We are in the process of finalizing the design and we are planning to start construction of the new showroom at the beginning of March. We planning to have 2 distinct areas. One are will display all of our Sawn Paving & Bespoke items. The second area will display our range of slate, limestone and Sandstone Paving.
Once we begin construction I am going to try and write a blog detailing the progress. Its going be a big ask to get the showroom open in time for the 1st April, but there is nothing like a fixed deadline too focus the mind :)
