MORE than 500 people turned up to celebrate the opening of a new fish store at a garden centre.
The range at Dobbies Garden Centre in Aberdeen’s Lang Stracht, now includes more than 5,000 fish from around the world.
Colin Christian, director at Fishkeeper Scotland, the firm behind the revamp at the garden centre, said: “We had a brilliant launch weekend where people turned up in their droves to check out our new store.
“The newly extended area, where we have introduced a range of marine fish and accessories, was particularly popular with both fishkeepers and families, who also enjoyed the extra activities we put on to celebrate the launch, including face painting and competitions to win aquariums.
“I’m confident that it will be a huge success going forward.”
The company invested £125,000 revamping the store, which has doubled in size.
The move has meant the creation of two new jobs as well as keeping the existing six staff.
