As of January 2020, Gardners' has relocated from 149 Commercial Street, Shoreditch to 78 Ruckholt Road, Leyton - roughly a 15 minute drive away. This was a decision made with a heavy heart; we had previously been the oldest family business in the area (150 years!), but increases in rents and business rates made our position untenable. We continue to deliver to the area, and keep in contact with many of our old friends and customers - please get in touch if you would like deliveries or to find out more information.
Moving to Leyton has meant that our business rates have reduced considerably and we no longer have to pay rent and rates in excess of ~£1000 a week. We can now feasibly sustain our low prices and offer genuinely affordable products for customers and businesses in the local area, as well as further afield.
We are one of the few businesses in the packaging industry who have managed to sustain a shopfront and we hope you will come and visit us and the local area. Attending the shop directly allows for personal customer service with Paul, who has over 40 years of experience, you'll be able to see and test any products directly and there'll be no delivery fees either! If you're travelling from outside London, you'll also have a chance to visit the East End as well as all the other distinctive businesses that give life to the area.
