“I just wanted to commend everyone at Dean’s, we live locally and often pop in. My friend and I have had a delicious lunch and looked round at all the wonderful goods on offer. Everyone always helpful and friendly and it is always a great place to visit.”
A Bailey – York

“I just thought I would contact you regarding the customer service that we received by a member of your staff on Sunday 24 August.  We came to the garden centre to find a pond to make a wildlife pond in our garden.  I’m afraid I didn’t get the name of the member of staff who approached us to ask us if we needed help, he was working outside near where the pond plants etc were, but he was obviously extremely passionate about the section he was looking after, he really helped us out with telling us how to site the pond, what plant we needed for the pond, how to plant them and look after them both now and in the future and basically showed so much enthusiasm in sharing his knowledge, he is such a credit to your store.  We came back the next day as we had forgotten to get some oxygenating plants and as we were leaving the store, he recognised us, and asked us how he had got on with our pond.  These days everyone is so quick to criticise customer service, but I believe in paying credit where it is due, and it certainly is here.  We will certainly return to Dean’s to buy anything else we need for our new pond!”
Mrs Lyon – York

“I don’t know who I spoke to last bank holiday Monday, but I just wanted to write to say thank you to them if possible and to Deans for employing such helpful staff.
I came in with a really random question of ‘have you got any seeds for ‘Miner’s lettuce’?’  The staff on the help desk didn’t initially know, but they checked the catalogue and double checked common names and worked out that it is Claytonia perfoliata (also known as Purslane), then they duly went and found seeds.
Deans’ may not always be the cheapest place to come, but rest assured whilst there are helpful, knowledgeable staff that are patient and care about their plants I will ensure I am a regular customer.”
Becky Clarkson – York

“I have been a customer of Dean’s for over 20 years. I am a keen gardener in all aspects, I come to Dean’s for all my garden needs because the range of seeds, plants, fertilisers and tools is extensive. The staff are always friendly and helpful if I need advice and the plants are always of good quality. The Coffee Shop is excellent and the prices throughout are fair and value for money”
