Friday Funnies ~ One Happy Place To Buy Your Spring Plants

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

I just don't get it. Everyone keeps telling me to write these posts about local businesses and their promotions that are going on this week. This nursery is looking to attract more business. It must be true about assisting these businesses with blogging but the response has been extraordinary. Text, phone calls, email, EVERYONE wants to know the address of this place for some reason.

I guess a lot of gardeners out there.

Thanks for a good laugh! Makes me wonder how many customers at this nursery took pictures of the sign and posted it on their social media sites.  And how many people would rush to the store to get their free pot if they knew where it was!

You're a clever man Gary! I've tried to help area businesses before and at least two of them have closed shortly after I posted about them...

Too funny!   

    But what great PR for that company.  I suspect that they know exactly what they were doing.

Gary,

I though I'd seen this before, but it was the other way around on the 420 Shop's marquee.

Gary, I think it's because most nurseries charge for the pot.  (sarcastic grin)

Now where can I get my Free Pot?
