On Sept. 1, 2004, we opened doors here at Country Gardens Garden Center, Inc. to give the people of Person County a place to buy high quality trees and shrubs at an affordable price. We had a good start, so in 2005 we added mulch and other landscape materials in addition to our line of Dixie Chopper mowers. A few years later on Dec. 1, 2007, we moved to our current location to give us more room to expand even further, adding our gift and decoration lines as well as expanding in other ways. In 2008, we added Cub Cadet to our lineup. And now today, in the face of adversity with the weak economy, we are still going strong and plan to continue to serve the people of this area for many years to come.
