Garden Center Woes (already)
I stopped into the Saint Johns MI Big Kmart a couple days ago and was happy to see they already rolled out the live plants/flowers but its sort of an issue to do so here in Michigan right now, especially when they are left unprotected from the weather.
The flowers already looked HORRIBLE due to being out in the frost, major rains we’ve received and very cold weather. Looking at what is there now I can guarantee 90% of these will be wasted and thrown out.
Why doesn’t this Kmart store along with most all of them utilize the actual garden shop area like it was designed for? Most every Kmart store has the fenced in area connected to the garden center area that sits either empty or filled with bags of mulch and other such items. These should have a protective cover over part of it with the plants under or better yet, bring back the temporary green house that always was set up out in the parking lot for live plants/flowers.
I was hoping to buy these items at Kmart this year but looks like as always I’ll be forced to shop elsewhere. I am willing to look past the limited selection compared to an actual Green House dedicated to selling plants/flowers but dead/half dead plants in front of a store make the whole store look terrible when its the first thing you see before even entering the store.
