The upcoming new look for the Rupert Lawn and Garden Centre will come by way of a Prince Rupert contractor, with the Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Development Corporation awarding the work to Rupert Wood and Steel.
As we outlined on the blog earlier this week, the popular Garden Centre in the Seal Cove area will be closing early for the season, with the doors to close by the end of this month.
At that time the demolition of the existing structure will take place, with construction of the new facility getting underway; starting with the installation of a new foundation and utility service.
It's anticipated that the work will run through the fall and winter, with a grand re-opening set for late March or early April of 2020.

A press release has expanded on the scope of the upcoming plans, with Rupert Lawn and Garden management noting that the new store will use locally sourced timber, feature skylights for increased natural light, as well as to feature a level-entry and handi-accessible washroom.
"We are thrilled to continue expanding to better serve our customers. This new store will be brighter, bigger and more vibrant and we can't wait to show everyone next season" -- Gitmaxmak'ay Nisga'a Economic Development CEO Blair Mirau
In addition to the expanded footprint for the building, the new set up will also feature more off-street parking, a larger space for bulk topsoil and other goods as well.
