Week Two – Site Visit: Woodie’s DIY

Last weekend, I paid a visit to Woodie’s DIY and Garden Centre, Cork Road, Waterford:

From the beginning it was clear that Woodie’s was in the gardening business longer that Morris’s however there were still some issues. Their range of indoor products was very limited, almost non existent. However they did have some products to assist with growing things in some unusual spaces, such as across a beam.

Woodies also relied heavily on traditional gardening methods, and some of the flaws associated with this were apparent. Examples include cracked pots, and once again, over sized compost bags. After visiting this store, I still firmly believe there is a gap in the market which I shall try to cater to.
