A Fourth Off the First of Next Week

Take one-fourth off, beginning July 7

This 4th of July has great timing.  First of all it occurs on Friday. I don’t hear anyone complaining about that.  Secondly, the weather looks fabulous!  High temperatures are forecast to be only in the 80’s with abundant sunshine.  You can’t write a better script weather-wise. The rains we’ve had lately make for favorable fireworks conditions; fortunately everything is lush and green.  There are few fire concerns.


The 4th of July is a special holiday. It is a time when family picnics and trips to the lake rule the day…or weekend!  We here at Bates Nursery wish you an enjoyable time with your loved ones.  We’ve decided to do the same.  As I mentioned last week, we will be closed the entire holiday weekend.


Indeed, July 4th is a time of family get-togethers and other social events. The Whitland neighborhood is a prime example of that. Their 4th of July celebration begins in the late morning hours with a bicycle parade and marching band. Usually a symphony ensemble performs along with various local artists singing patriotic songs. This is one of Nashville's treasures.  It is a neighborhood event that really captures small town patriotism…in the city.


We continue to enjoy the gracious weather this summer has brought us; it occurs to me we should do a little celebrating ourselves. Beginning Monday morning at 8 AM, we will be offering BatesRewards members every thing we sell at 25% off! Our, " A Fourth Off the First of Next Week" sale offers you our entire selection of merchandise; everything from trees to shrubs to groundcovers is 25% off. It doesn't stop there. This sale also includes all pottery, bagged and bulk soils and mulches. Everything you need to grow your garden; all at 25% off! (Gift cards, deliveries & special orders excluded)


" A Fourth Off the First of Next Week" sale ends July 10th. We will be closed July 4th, 5th and 6th in observance of Independence Day holiday weekend.


Let the holiday fireworks begin!
