Northern California nursery expands
Green Acres Nursery & Supply, a Sacramento, Calif.-area garden center, will open a third location in Folsom on Feb. 29, according to an article in the Sacramento Bee.
Owner Mark Gill is remodeling a former 30,000-sq.-ft. Circuit City, enlarging its doors so potted trees can fit through and building a large arbor to shade outdoor shrubs and bedding plants. The retail nursery will also feature a 13,500-sq.-ft. greenhouse. It will be one of the largest independent garden centers in the Central Valley, with 68,500 sq. ft. of covered sales space on its 5.7-acre site. The new checkout line has 14 cashiers.
Green Acres Nursery & Supply also operates locations in Roseville and Sacramento.
