Fort Worth, TX, March 05, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Calloway’s Nursery was recently named one of Today’s Garden Center’s Revolutionary 100 as a top independent garden center in the United States.
Today’s Garden Center surveys garden center owners and managers then develops a list of the 100 most revolutionary garden centers in the nation. The program, now in its fifth year, is open to all independent garden centers and is based on leadership and innovation.
“We are extremely pleased to have our efforts recognized in this way. It is an honor to be in such great company,” Kimberly Bird, vice president of retail marketing for Calloway’s Nursery.
Garden center owner and managers across the United States fill out an extensive online questionnaire covering topics such as employee training, industry involvement, profitability, marketing, use of technology, purchasing, and customer and community service. The entrants are ranked according to a point system, and the 100 top entries make the list.
“Each year this list honors the truly innovative and unique garden centers across the country that continue to change and evolve as their customers’ needs change,” says Jennifer Polanz, editor of Today’s Garden Center. “This year I think this award means even more because the independent retailers on the list were able to weather difficult economic conditions and serve their customers well.”
The 2010 Revolutionary 100 Awards program is sponsored by several leading industry suppliers including Fafard, Goldsmith Seeds, Nexus Greenhouse Corp. and the Voluntary Purchasing Group. For more information about Calloway’s Nursery, please visit mytexasgarden.com.
