A cookware shop has opened at a garden centre.

Haskins Garden Centre Snowhill in Crawley has welcomed a Lakeland store to the site, enhancing the Copthorne centre's offering to the area.

Lakeland, taking its name from its founding home in Windermere in the Lake District, offers a variety of cooking, baking, cleaning, and laundry products.

The new store created eight jobs in the area and has already proved popular with visitors to Haskins Snowhill.

Julian Winfield, CEO of Haskins Garden Centres said: “Our Snowhill centre is already a leading shopping destination for our local community and Lakeland’s recognised and celebrated quality product range further enhances this offering.

“We now have a centre that is able to offer expert gardening advice alongside a range of quality gardening products, a place to relax with family and friends in our restaurant and coffee shop, and now a place to shop for homeware and cooking products.”

Emma Kay, head of property at Lakeland said: “It’s a pleasure to be working in partnership with a like-minded family business which shares our values. Having grown from humble beginnings through a passion for quality and customer care, Haskins, much like Lakeland, has established itself as a go-to destination with strong roots in the local community and a loyal following.”
