We are planning be open during the entire process.
Though our open hours will possibly be shortened, our intent at the moment is to remain up and running through the entire construction process (which should be complete by March 2018). Fall mums, vegetables, pansies, violas, and ornamental kale are now available and our poinsettia crop has really taken off in the summer heat and humidity; all signs we will be open and ready for your business.
Where are we ‘open and ready for business’ you ask?
Over the early summer months the Klein’s staff has busily been preparing and readying 5 of our growing greenhouses out back to welcome our customers. Only the archaic and inefficient front ranges nearest East Washington Avenue have been demolished and will be reconstructed (This is marked in yellow in the picture above). Our growing areas out back are newer and simpler structures and will be our temporary home in the upcoming months. We’ve been very busy making sure that your shopping experience continues to be a pleasant one. We’ve drastically tidied the new retail spaces, leveled floors, widened doors and set up new display areas; both inside and out. The ‘temporary Klein’s’ will be accessible from both East Washington Ave. and from Stoughton Rd. behind the Walgreens (though our entrance nearest the Home Savings Bank will be closed due to the construction). A temporary parking lot will be at the back of our property nearest Club LaMark (marked in blue).
Once inside, you’ll get a peek into our behind-the-scenes growing greenhouses. We continue to have our wonderful selection of houseplants, blooming plants, succulents, air plants, pottery, soils and supplies (though a bit more limited selection until in our new facility is open).
A floral cooler is stocked daily with fresh arrangements and cut flowers and designers are available for all of your floral needs. Floral orders and daily deliveries continue as usual and can be made by calling our designers at 608-244-5661 or online at www.kleinsfloral.com. Our goal is to keep everything running as close to status quo as possible during construction.
In short, we’re hoping you’ll continue to visit us during these exciting upcoming months (if out of curiosity alone). Our homegrown mums and fall plants are now available, spring bulbs will become available around Labor Day and our poinsettias will begin showing color in mid-October. AND…our growers are currently busy ordering product for the 2018 spring season for our brand new state-of-the-art garden center.
In advance, we ask for your patience, support and continued patronage in the upcoming months!
