Though we still have a lot of product to unpack and move into place and a lot of work to complete, we are now welcoming our customers into our new facility. Our growing greenhouses out back are filling to the brink with spring plants so it’s time to vacate them and move into our new space!
Without a doubt, 2018 is the most important and exciting year in Klein’s Floral & Greenhouse’s long history as we move into our modern and state-of-the art facility during March. Though in the exact same location, Klein’s new greenhouses and retail center will greatly improve our customers’ shopping experience.
With essentially the same footprint as the old, the new facility makes efficient use of all available space for increased plant and retail selection. Aisles will be wide and easy to shop–no more ramps or uneven surfaces to navigate and no more low pipes or gutters to duck under. Streamlined check out counters are located in a temperature controlled and air conditioned environment. Heat in the separate, energy efficient greenhouses is provided by an in-ground hot water system. Summer cooling is made easy with automatic shade curtains and roof and wall vents. Longtime customers will certainly appreciate the new comfort.
Among the biggest differences between the ‘old’ Klein’s and the new is the fact that our floral department will be front and center, rather than in the basement of the old farmhouse. The new floral department is located literally in the center of our retail area; with an open concept design, a large counter area and visible work space, and a large, well-stocked, self-serve cooler for customers to grab floral arrangements and fresh loose flowers. Consultations for weddings, funerals and special events will take place in a beautiful, well-lit and air conditioned space set away from the hustle and bustle of the garden center.
Easy access in and out from both E. Washington Ave (Hwy. 151) and Stoughton Rd. (Hwy. 51) remains similar, but much improved. Available parking, however, has increased by double!
As we acclimate to our new space (a term used often when referring to plants), we at Klein’s realize 2018 is a year of many new experiences and new challenges. We expect both huge successes and a few mistakes as we learn and grow into our new digs. Knowing this will take some time, we ask for our customers’ patience and their vital feedback during this pivotal year.
A big Thank You in advance and hope to see you in the weeks, months and years ahead! Stay tuned for our BIG Grand Opening event in May!
