A popular garden and pet shop has unveiled its large new expansion in a Norfolk market town.

Myhills Pet and Garden in Watton opened the extension earlier this week which has added another 1500 sq ft to the flagship store.

Roy Hagan, 54, company director, said: "We're very pleased with how it turned out.

"It's a much smarter environment to offer our products from and by offering a wider variety in a much more spacious area we hope it will bring in a lot more people."

As part of the extension, much of the business' homeware and kitchen goods were moved to occupy the ground floor space, which Mr Hagan said would allow them to expand the current garden furniture and seasonal displays.

"The new expansion allows us to cover so many bases and gives the Watton store a real department store feel," Mr Hagan added.

"We want people to feel like they can come to us for anything, instead of needing to go out of town to a larger place like Dereham or Wymondham.

"It makes more sense economically and ecologically."

As well as Watton, Myhills has stores in Attleborough, Dereham, Diss, Swaffham and Wymondham.

The extension, which took roughly three months, is among a number of plans for the brand's future which Mr Hagan said would be revealed as and when they come.
