She described how the space the garden center is in was once a lawn mower repair shop and was instead transformed into a garden center, "We just totally revamped it and we moved all the plants and garden center stuff down here and at the other store redid our front and then that awning out there we had a storm that blew it off, and now we've got all our Huskvarna mowers and power equipment parked out there where the garden center was."
Howard continued by introducing staff members who were present for the ribbon cutting. Meg Camp, Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Ambassador, spoke on behalf of her fellow ambassadors and expressed excitement at the new garden center. She said the ambassadors are always available to help.
