Garden centre closing doors after 25 years

Garden centre closing doors after 25 years

After 25 years of serving the East Gippsland community, Dahlsens Garden Centre will close its doors for the last time this Saturday, April 13, at 4pm. 
The decision comes as part of a strategic realignment of Dahlsens' business operations - as Dahlsens continues to specialise in the supply of building materials.
In a separate venture, the Dahlsens family remains committed to its investment in East Gippsland through the Quest Hotel now under construction opposite the New Leaf Cafe.
Since its inception, Dahlsens Garden Centre has been a valued establishment within the local community. 
However, the Dahlsens business strategy no longer aligns with the operation of a standalone garden centre. 
The Dahlsen family recognise the importance of the services offered by the garden centre to East Gippsland residents and have diligently worked to ensure continuity of service under alternative arrangements.
The Dahlsen family has collaborated closely with Jacqui Banson, owner of the beloved New Leaf Cafe located within Dahlsens Garden Centre, and Lachlan Bull from Lucknow-based Bulls Botanics, to ensure that key offerings from the garden centre remain accessible to the community through their businesses.
New Leaf Cafe will continue trading at its Dalmahoy Street site. Additionally, it will expand its offerings to include giftware and the House of Bloom florist, providing residents with access to gifts and fresh flowers, as well as the coffee and meals it is already well known for.
