2019 Retailer of the Year, Griffin’s Greenhouses

Griffin’s Greenhouses is the Kawartha Chamber’s 2019 Retailer of the Year.

2018 saw an increase of 10% in sales and a sizable profitability increase. The industry standard
is 75% of sales in May and June but they have pared this to 60% by keeping customers coming
in typically quiet months. Merchandising is fresh and on trend for the season. A beautiful and
informative biweekly e-newsletter has a readership of over 3000. They grow 75% of what they
sell and only stock zone appropriate plants. Staff are trained to help all levels of gardeners.

Finalists: Kingdon Timber Mart, Paris Marine, Village Pet Food & Supply

The Sponsor of the Retailer of the Year Award is Nexicom
