Lowe’s Greenhouse Named One of Today’s Garden Center’s “Revolutionary 100”

Lowe’s Greenhouse, Florist & Gift Shop joined the ranks of the horticulture industry’s top independent garden centers when it was named one of Today’s Garden Center’s Revolutionary 100 for the seventh year in a row.

The program, now in its tenth year, surveys garden center owners and managers and culminates in a listing of the 100 most revolutionary garden centers in the nation. It is open to all independent garden centers, large and small, and is based on leadership and innovation, not on size or revenue.

“The entire Lowe’s Greenhouse family is honored and very excited to receive this award for the 7th consecutive year. Our talented team works diligently to make our store a special place for our clientele and I am thrilled that their efforts have once again been recognized on a national level. Ours is a very difficult and competitive business and our success is largely determined by the ingenuity, creativity and conscientiousness of our staff. I am looking forward to 2015 as another opportunity to institute new, revolutionary business concepts that will help sustain our status us one of the premier garden centers in the country,” says Jeff Griff, Owner.

Garden center owners and managers across the United States fill out an extensive online questionnaire covering topics such as customer and community service, management philosophy, marketing, use of technology, purchasing and profitability. The entrants are ranked according to a point system, and the 100 top entries make the list.

Lowe’s Greenhouse is operated by third generation owner Jeff Griff. The business has been serving the Chagrin Valley since 1926 and employs up to 60 people.

“The garden centers that made this year’s list are an exceptional group of forward-thinking independent retailers who understand their customers are constantly evolving and strive to provide what they need to succeed in the gardening lifestyle,” says Today’s Garden Center Editor Carol Miller. “We are proud to call them revolutionary.”

More information on the Revolutionary 100, including the complete listing, it can be found in the January issue of Today’s Garden Center magazine and at TodaysGardenCenter.com.
