Happy Hot Tubs Managing Director James Hallett said the site is an "absolutely incredible new development" adding that the company is "absolutely thrilled" to open its second hot tub megastore there.

Daily Echo:

The company opened its showroom in Fareham in 2014 and also has showrooms garden centres in Mappleborough Green Centre, in the Midlands, and at Stansted Park Garden Centre at Rowlands Castle.

Mr Hallett added: "We have had the showroom at Fareham since 2014 and it has served the community brilliantly.

“But with the way the market had moved in the last two years we had started to really outgrow the site and started looking for a location that offered our customers a much more complete hot tub experience."
