INDOOR SALES AREA
A vast amount of the sales area at Dobbies, Milton Keynes is devoted
to gifts, cards, books and other non-gardening items.

The delicatessen at this branch of Dobbies was larger than most and stocked a
huge range of cheese, preserves wines and other goodies.
The butchers was well
stocked with a variety of unusual meats. The staff were very well-informed about the
meats they were serving.
