Niceville Garden Center in Florida Panhandle wins Grandiflora’s $500 Shopping Spree

Friday, December 30th, 2011

For the second straight year, Grandiflora has held a drawing at the Landscape Show in Orlando FL for a $500 shopping spree at the nursery. To enter, customers must have made at least a $500 purchase from Grandiflora in the past two months. For each $500 spent, a customer received one entry, so the number of chances increased with each order and the size of those orders.

 

This tears’s winner was Tammy from Niceville Garden Center. Grandiflora owner, Alan Shapiro, let his grand-daughter, 3-year old Delaney Kate Anderson, pick the winning ticket on the last day of the show.

Grandiflora Wins Best Themed Exhibit at The Landscape Show

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Grandiflora won another award at  The Landscape Show in Orlando at the beginning of October, “Best Themed Exhibit”. We dressed as ship-wrecked sailors on a beach with our sail boat and a background of colorful tropical and blooming plants from the nursery. Our exhibit took the trade show’s optimistic theme of “Full Sail Ahead” and added a twist to reflect the last few year’s struggle with the worsening economy. Our rustic signage had messages  that read “Survived the wreck” and “Weathered the storm” and finally, “Smooth sailing ahead”.

We are optimistic about the coming spring. Hopefully 2012 will mark the beginning of a new era of higher nursery sales.
