My friend Trey over at the Golden Gecko Garden Center in Northern California always post some thoughtful articles. In his recent one he comments on the result of the economy on garden centers. http://www.thegoldengecko.com/blog/
I enjoyed his post and want to add one additional reason for people to shop at their local garden center right now…..saving money. The slow economy has caused many garden centers to drop their margins in order to pull people in, this means cost savings for the consumers. Over the last six months I have seen ads touting 50% off selected items, buy one get one free, group pricing extended to a wider variety of plants, as well as offers of free delivery and installs. From a buyers stand point, if saving money is a priority now is a great time to be watching for those deals.
