There is no doubt that 2020 has been challenging in ways we never could have prepared for. And for me one of the most important lessons learned this year has been the absolute necessity of being able to adapt quickly.
In March the future of our business was in doubt due to closures and burglary, in April we faced supply chain and shipping issues and in May things turned around as we could hardly keep up with demand as homeowners stayed home, hunkered down and planted gardens. The landscape of our local business community has changed this year. Some closures are related to COVID, some are not.
As I assess the needs of our faithful customer base, and the community at large it has become apparent that local shopping options are slim. While I can’t replace the beloved movie theater or CB Fox, I can expand the offerings at Petree Garden Center & Florist. I’m starting with many of the same gift lines previously found at CB Fox and adding lots of new handmade items purchased directly from the makers.
This includes jewelry and accessories, fun fashion sox and indulgent handcrafted bath products. We are adding a full offering of quality teas, mugs, greeting cards and chocolates, all made by US artisans. And we now also offer gift packaging. So, when you come in for a last-minute gift, we have everything you need.
If you aren’t able to come in and shop you can order by phone and we will deliver your gift purchase. For free. We love fresh cut flowers and houseplants and we want to make giving them easier than ever. You can now order our trend gift baskets, DIY Kits and flower subscription boxes for delivery. Know someone who loves succulents or tea or pets? We have terrarium kits, tea baskets & pet lover’s seed kits all lovingly packaged and delivered!
And the best part? You get to customize it. Stop in or ring us up and we’ll give you a ton of options to choose from, then we’ll package it and deliver it. Ever wanted to try your hand at flower arranging? Try our flower subscription box and learn a new hobby.
This summer we launched our new Terrarium Bar. A fun way to create your own terrarium with expert help right in the store. As the Holiday season approaches where you shop and how you spend your money will be more important than ever before. We all love the convenience of online shopping, but what’s lost with one click ordering is connection.
You should have a connection to the places you shop, the gifts you give and the community you live in. When you come into our store, we are genuinely happy to see you and grateful that you shopped with us.
We hope you’ll come discover the new items we are stocking and the thoughtful services we are offering. Petree Garden Center & Florist, your new local source for gift and decor, in store, curbside or delivered, here all year!
