Kick Off The Holidays With Your Friends!
We’re excited about November, because it’s a big prelude to the holidays! Of course, we launch this year’s holiday season with our annual collaborative event, “4 Friends, 1 Fabulous Weekend Holiday Tour” of Bloomington-Normal Garden Centers on November 12th, 13th & 14th. It’s a jointly-sponsored weekend event with our fellow garden center friends, Casey’s Garden Shop, Grieder Garden Center and Growing Grounds. Festive decorations, refreshments, music, Santa Claus and lots of holiday cheer will be abundant at all locations! Visit all four garden center locations for a chance to win $500.00 in store gift cards ($125.00 at each garden center) and other door prizes. Receive a punch card at any participating garden center, to get in on a chance to win either one of the store gift cards or other terrific door prizes available at each location. Punch cards can be obtained beginning on Friday evening, November 12th and must be returned by the conclusion of events on Sunday, November 14th. Please note that in order to qualify for the $500.00 in store gift cards, all four locations must have been visited, with your card having been punched at each garden center. Here are the scheduled hours for this event:
Friday, November 12th……. 5PM-8PM*
Saturday, November 13th…. 8AM-6PM
Sunday, November 14th…. 9AM-5PM
* Punch cards will be issued beginning Friday, November 12th at 6PM.
At Niepagens, we will also have our own special activities for this premier event, including:
- Chance to win a $200.00 Gift Certificate from Wendell Niepagen Greenhouses & Garden Center
- Friday evening only– Food and wine available, plus special musical entertainment from “Don’t Fret”, an eclectic group of musicians (see photo) playing a wide array of traditional and unique instruments… plus, a special visit from Santa Claus!
- Saturday only– More food and fun, with hot dogs available all day, special activities for the kids and an encore appearance by Santa Claus, taking all your Christmas Wish List requests…
- And, of course, great holiday decorating and gift-giving ideas throughout the store!
The musical group “Don’t Fret” will be performing Friday evening, November 12th at Niepagens.
We know it will be a fantastic weekend and a terrific opportunity to get the Christmas holiday season started off right. So, visit us, as well as our friends’ locations for the “4 Friends, 1 Fabulous Weekend Holiday Tour”.
And not to be outdone, our LeRoy location, Wendell Niepagen Garden Shop, will have its own public Holiday Open House on December 3rd, 4th & 5th. Holiday decorating and gift-giving ideas will be abundant throughout the store. Wendell Niepagen Garden Shop is located at 400 North Walnut Street (on Route 150) in LeRoy. Although families are encouraged to come in and visit all three days, Saturday the 4th would be a great family outing– because the day is highlighted by the LeRoy Christmas Parade at 2PM! Refreshments will be available all three days, and customers are encouraged to register for door prizes to be given away during the event. Store hours for the Open House are as follows:
- Friday, December 3rd………. 10AM-6PM
- Saturday, December 4th…… 10AM-4PM
- Sunday, December 5th…....... Noon-4PM
Be sure to stop in so we can wish you a joyful holiday season! Call the store at (309) 962-5800 for more event details.
