We don’t want to jinx it but the good news just keeps rolling in for 2019! As of this year, we’ve set up three new Vegepod locations with a fourth one on the way. This will take Vegepod up to ten locations around the world in the last four years!
Here’s a bit about our set up at the new Vegepod locations.
Firstly, you may be thinking, ‘wait a minute, Vegepod have been in Canada now for at least two years??’ And yes, while it’s true Vegepod have been working with stockist Lee Valley Tools since 2017, this March, young Blake Harris will be pioneering actual Vegepod representation in the far north due to the demand for a Canadian office branch - serving up Australian-style customer service.
What’s more in March, Vegepod has been invited to attend the Canada Blooms Festival in Toronto, Canada. The Canada Bloom’s festival is the North American version of the RHS Chelsea Flower Show in the UK. With participants travelling up from the US and Central America to participate.
Vegepod Ireland & Scotland
Vegepod has brokered a deal with Horkans Gardening Centre to act as their stockists in Ireland.
Horkans are the central gardening supplier in Ireland having been around since the 1900s with Vegepod now stocked at their four locations in Castlebar, Galway, Glen of the Downs, Sligo.
Venturing further into the UK, Vegepod has also partnered with Dobbies Garden Centre stockists in Scotland and now twenty Dobbie’s stores are stocking Vegepod!
Lastly, Vegepod is due to set up in Mauritius of all places! Cedric Affouye is a fifth-generation orchid seller who has done a lot of work with ornamental plants and green walls. He’s now working round the clock to add Vegepod to his hort lines for April 2019. Watch this space! The Vegepod team in Aus plan to visit soon - to help Cedric with set up of course, nothing to do with a holiday in Mauritius ;)
