California's Green Acres Scouts Sites for Fourth Store Expansion

Tuesday, May 14, 2013
SACRAMENTO, CA - Green Acres Nursery & Supply is looking for a site in Elk Grove, CA, to expand to four locations in the state next year, the Sacramento Business Journal reports. Its current three locations, in Roseville, Folsom and Sacramento, are seeing a sales increase of more than 20 percent this season over last year, says Ashley Gill, the garden center's Marketing Director. Green Acres ranks No. 61 in IGC Retailer's IGC 100 report with $8.4 million in estimated sales. “As the economy recovers and more new homes are built in our region, we believe categories like trees, shrubs, drainage and irrigation will become stronger,” Gill told the newspaper. “Another growing category for us is outdoor living, which includes patio furniture, barbecues, umbrellas, cushions, hammocks and outdoor accessories. New homes, excellent spring weather and a growing economy are all great for the nursery industry as a whole in the region.”
