A Somerset garden centre has this month (May, 2014) launched a new click and collect compost service.
The service will be available via Monkton Elm Garden & Pet Centre’s website.
Norma Moore, General Manager of the award-winning, independent family-run garden centre, at Monkton Heathfield in Taunton explained: “These days many people are looking for a quick and convenient way to shop and simply don’t have the time to pop in for a leisurely browse.
“We’ve decided to introduce a click and collect compost service for people who are short of time. All people need to do is log on to our website at www.monktonelmgardencentre.co.uk, browse our range of composts and select the ones they’d like to purchase.
“Our helpful staff will then prepare the order and have it ready to be collected at our new collection point, which is located just off the main drive inside our entrance gate.”
When people visit the garden centre to pick up their purchase they will need to sound their horn and a member of staff will be on-hand to help load the order into their car.
Norma added: “We ask people using our new service to allow us two hours to pick and prepare the order before it is ready for collection. Customers should bring along a proof purchase or proof of identification of the bill payer.”
“We’ve also recently launched our new late night open evenings on Thursdays. Every Thursday we are open until 7.30pm so people can make their compost orders on their lunch break and pick up their goods on their way home.”
