And Winter Has Yet to Arrive…
An interesting end to autumn -
After the last week, you can’t help but wonder what winter will be like. Technically, it is still fall; someone forgot to tell Mother Nature. All of the hurried scurrying to protect our plants cut our end of season sale short. So, we’ve decided to extend it through our last business day for this year. EVERYTHING* will be 50% off through 4pm on Thursday December 23, 2010. Whether we’ve moved it inside or not, EVERYTHING* is still discounted 50%. Half off is a pretty good deal. Here’s one last chance to take care of the avid gardener in your life. We have received additional plants that were never put on the lot; they went directly inside. So there’s great stuff inside greenhouse #1 (that’s the big one directly behind the garden center). *Deliveries and Gift Cards are excluded…
In addition to 50% off EVERYTHING*, we still have a good selection of Buck-A-Gallon plants remaining, plus we’ve added a few items. The Buck-A-Gallon plants are now located in section A-4, to save you a few steps. There are conifers and deciduous shrubs at tremendous value, and while they may not look fabulous currently, they will next year after you supply some TLC. At a Buck-A-Gallon, you’re not risking much and the potential rewards are great!
As an extra special “Thank-you” to our BatesRewards members, purchase a living Christmas tree at half off; get a free wreath or poinsettia to go with it, while supplies last! These are florist quality poinsettias, not box store quality. Our wreaths are shipped from the west coast and dipped with VaporGuard® to preserve freshness. Select a tree and your free holiday poinsettia or wreath; enjoy them all season long. And while you’re here, enjoy some hot chocolate, cider or coffee and treats.
Remember, we are now closed on Sundays. Our last day of business for 2010 is December 23rd. We will re-open January 3, 2011 at 8am. We will be shortening our hours a bit during the worst of the winter. We will be open from 8am to 3:30pm Monday through Friday. We will be closed on Saturdays until mid-February. Preparations for spring are just around the corner. If you have special needs that arise over the winter, let us know and we’ll do our best to accommodate!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from all of us at Bates Nursery & Garden Center,
