M&C reaches final of national award

sola_finalist-logoMackenzie and Cruickshank has been voted one of the top five garden centres in the country in the Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards and will find out if it has scooped the gong at a glittering award ceremony next month.

Peter Wilson, owner of Mackenzie and Cruickshank said: “It is great to have reached the final of the Scottish Outdoor & Leisure Awards. It’s particularly nice as we have reached the final down to support from our loyal customers who have been casting votes.”

Hundreds of businesses from all over the country battled it out to win the public’s vote and the award organisers Paramount Creative will be showcasing 126 finalists across the 17 categories available.

Independent judges will now review the shortlisted businesses, with all winners being revealed at the final which will take place in the Doubletree Glasgow Central on Sunday 27th November.

Warren Paul, CEO of the awards said, “We’re delighted with the response to the event this year and are really excited for this year’s gala final!”

Building work at Mackenzie and Cruickshank has recently started on a £500,000 extension which will double the retail space to display plants, gardening goods and summer furniture. The development will also lead to two new full-time members of staff being employed.

Peter said: “The extension is well on its way and we are delighted with the space it will open up for us. This last year has been busy and we have tried lots of new thing such as school holiday events, ladies nights and for the first time this year we will be holding a festive food and drink evening. The garden centre world can be hugely competitive and it’s important that we move forward and try new things.”
