A Fourth Off for the Fourth

Take one-fourth off, beginning on the first

It is a Monday holiday.  No, I’m don’t mean Labor Day.  This year July 4th falls on a Monday.  That got me to thinking.  It is a great time for the hard working staff here at Bates to get a bit of additional “R & R.  Since I just got back from vacation, it only seems fitting to give them an extended weekend, while giving you the best opportunity to shop.  We will be open July 2nd, closed July 4th & 5th.

The 4th of July is a special holiday. It's the time of year when you hear many people inquire: Do they have 4th of July in England? The answer is YES, they do have 4th of July in England, they just don't celebrate it. Fortunately, they don't seem to be holding a grudge.

Historically 4th of July 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 weather this summer brings us; it occurs to me we should do a little celebrating ourselves. Beginning Friday morning at 8 AM, we will be offering BatesRewards members every thing we sell at 25% off! Our, " A Fourth Off for the Fourth" 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 for the Fourth" sale ends July 7th. We will be open July 2nd, closed July 4th & 5th.

Let the holiday fireworks begin!
