Here at Grimsby Garden Centre we believe in supporting the local community.
Which is why we welcome local independent businesses to sell with us.
Think you might be a good fit for us? When looking to work with independent suppliers, there’s a few things we take into consideration:
All products sold at Grimsby Garden Centre must meet and be tested against the necessary safety standards required for that product range. For example, cosmetic products must be clearly labelled, and have been assessed against the government’s product safety assessment.
We’re an advocate for our area and strong believers in that investing in the people and businesses who are working hard to come up with creative products and unique ideas will only make North East Lincolnshire an even better place to live and work. Not only that, but it’s better for the environment too!
We have a green plan to improve the sustainability of the garden centre so we choose to work with businesses who are also taking steps to reduce their impact on the environment too.
We’re owned and run by NAViGO, the leading mental health provider for North East Lincolnshire so naturally, the people that we partner with should share our values with regards to inclusivity and will work alongside us to help break the stigma of mental health.
Like you, we want your products to be a success in the garden centre – so we avoid having similar stock ranges in at the same time – we wouldn’t have two competing ranges of wax melts, dog neckerchiefs, handmade candles or whatever it may be.
Here’s some of the awesome local businesses you’ll find when you pop down and visit us.
