Our campaign, along with Maura Currie, (@mauracurrie & @paisleyorguk ) has been resolved by Dobbies and Santa will now appear in the Paisley store, here is the press release from the Dobbies Facebook page. This decision was taken after intense campaigning via Twitter and Facebook with the help of the Paisley Daily Express’s Alison Rennie. We spoke to Amanda from Dobbies Garden centre’s press team who confirmed that they have now reversed their decision for Santa to not visit the store, and he will now be appearing on the dates below.
