To Our Loyal Customers: After much thought and consideration, we have made the decision that 2017 will be our last full season for the retail garden center. Our nursery and wholesale division will not be closing and will maintain full operations now and in the future. Additionally, we still plan to supply plants to our loyal customers in some capacity in the future, and we’ll keep you updated once we have all the details worked out. Three generations of the Ooykaas family have worked at our retail garden center, and some of our employees have been with us for their entire careers. We know that many of you have come to rely on their knowledge and advice. We are grateful for their service in our retail business and look forward to working with them in our wholesale division. The decision to close the garden center was not made out of haste. We feel privileged to have served the community as a family owned and operated garden center for the last 40 years, and your business is sincerely appreciated. During the 2017 season, our hours and quality of service will remain the same, just as in years past. Rest assured that if you bought plant material that is still under warranty, or if you buy from us in 2017, we will continue to honor all of our plant guarantees for the full year. To ensure you’ll be able to contact us after this season comes to a close, we will be keeping our retail phone number. Should you have any issues after our retail doors have closed this season, contact us at (815) 722-3133, and we’ll do our best to make it right. Please join us in making our last year with the retail garden center a memorable one, and help us celebrate 40 years at our garden center. We look forward to seeing you! Sincerely, The Ooykaas Family
