Proof garden stores are recovering from the Great Recession
from Greenhouse Grower
Garden stores are shaking off the last remnants of the 2008 economic crash, data from our retail State of the Industry shows. For several years, we’ve asked garden retailers about what issues created a barrier to their spring sales. The various issues retailers identify offer a pretty good glimpse into how healthy the industry is from year to year. Some of the selections — the economy, low customer count, lack of operating cash and customer spending — will indicate how much stores are struggling. High percentages and rankings for these categories are a bad sign.
