It is no secret the retail world has changed a lot since March due to the pandemic.
In response, local greenhouse and garden center owners Aaron and Andrea Peters of Family Roots Nursery have adapted to the changes to ensure they can continue to operate and assist their customers.
After exploring several options they decided to take their greenhouse and everything it entailed online. Over the past few months, they have rolled out an extensive website for customers to browse the wide array of plants and things needed for their gardens. After ordering online, the Peters offer curbside pickup or local delivery.
According to Andrea, with the Covid-19 numbers continuing to rise and the number of local customers affected, it only made sense to take the Christmas operations online as well.
For the first time ever local residents will be able to log in to their virtual store and order a fresh-cut Christmas tree and accessories needed to maintain it. They can then schedule a pickup or have the company deliver it to their homes.
“At Family Roots we take great pride in offering our customers exactly what they want and need, and this offers many of our customers safe, contactless shopping,” said Andrea.
Local delivery of freshcut Christmas trees will begin Monday, November 30. They will continue to keep their retail operation open seven days a week for those wishing to shop in person and will be building their web-based operations more as time and need allows.
The website for all ordering is www.familyrootsnursery.net.
