Time Moves Onward
Take 15% off your entire order, plus 25% off one item for ‘Dad’
Let the projects begin. It is that time of year. It is the time where we take stock of the wear and tear on our facilities and do our best to keep up with Father Time’s certain degradation. We’re fortunate to have been in business for many years, but time indeed takes its toll; I need only to look in the mirror for my daily reminder.
Our sales lot is what a paving contractor would call a ‘target-rich environment’. There are endless repairs to be made nearly everywhere you look. We have painting to do. There are always plumbing issues to deal with. Electrical issues arise from time to time. Proper cooling and ventilation often makes me hotheaded. Throw in a computer issue here and there and guess what? We even sell a few plants from time to time.
I would be remiss if I failed to mention a significant recent event. Adam Burton got married one year ago; they just had their first-born. Adam has worked seasonally for us for years. He is now full time. Burton, (that is how he is referred to at work since Adam Chapman also works here) is the brother of Shane Burton, also in my employ, and son of Julie Patterson, our resident plant procurement goddess. We are glad to have Adam Burton as a full time employee now, his (and many others) sweet gig with the T.V. show Nashville got cancelled (I kinda sorta know how that feels). Happy first Father’s Day Burton!
I know you’re finishing up projects as well, and then there’s that whole ‘Father’s Day’ thing. We can help you with both. As a BatesRewards member, you will get 15% off your entire order, everything except gift cards and deliveries. Additionally, you can get one item at 25% off for Dad!
A reminder; Father’s Day is the last Sunday of spring, and our last Sunday open until fall. Additionally, beginning Monday June 20, Hours: 8a-4p Monday-Saturday
The water is on ice!
