The gardening and plants area is next in line to be developed, with work expected to take place in the spring. The pets and aquatics store will be redeveloped after that.

New products in the store include home decoration, cookware, outdoor clothing, greetings cards and toys.

Said managing director James Dilley, "The changes are considerable and have brought Marlows right up to date. Marlows has always been a Bury institution but the new look represents a significant modernisation.

“We’ve really tried to bring the best of modern garden centres across the UK to the new Marlows and I hope it delights and surprises people.”

The redevelopment was advised by garden centre design consultants Pleydell Smithyman. Spokesperson Andrew Hughes explained, "The natural look and feel of the concept has allowed Marlows to create an effective and flexible retail space to suit a modern home and garden centre with a strong and welcoming new identity, whilst still retaining its tradition and roots.

“Further works to the outdoor plant area and garden sundries area for spring 2017 will complete the picture leaving Marlows well placed to build on its success in the future.”
