Grand Opening Party!
It's come a long way in Blind Bay from our very humble beginnings on Fairway Hills Rd, with a shack leaning on a greenhouse. Over the years on that site we grew, and grew adding greenhouses, and a proper storefront. Until last year we decided we had overgrown the site, there was not nearly enough parking, there was no more room for greenhouses and the people of the South Shuswap needed a larger garden centre!
Dad scoped out a BIG piece of property at 2515 Greer Rd., with great highway exposure and easy access off the Trans Canada Highway. He ordered another greenhouse and an extension for the store and a way we went! Bought the property and put up our massive billboard. We spent the fall and winter building, building and building, a lot of sweat, tears and maybe a little blood, (I know there was at least one finger that got screwed to the wall, hey Etienne?). One major set back was when some misguided people stole all of our tools, supplies, and even a pair of old work boots, but we pushed on and finished the store a week ahead of schedule and opened for business March 21.
So, now, here we are, it's Grand Opening Weekend and we're ready to Party! We're celebrating at both stores, starting today, Friday, April 17. We've got super low prices on some great products and plants throughout the stores!
Now it's time to get outside and unload another 53' trailer filled with Emerald Cedars, Western Red Cedars, Hedging Taxus, more Magnolias and Dogwoods! It's going to be a great weekend with loads of sun and warm temperatures! See you soon,
Go Canucks Go,
