Corn Crib Holiday Open House Nov. 24

Locally-owned garden center's annual event coincides with "Small Business Saturday"

Coal Valley, IL – Corn Crib Nursery, celebrating its 40th anniversary as a locally-owned, third generation family-owned garden center, welcomes area families to its annual holiday open house on Saturday, November 24th from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm at 6924 Route 150, Coal Valley, IL, just two miles from Quad City International Airport.
The event coincides with the national movement "Small Business Saturday." The full service garden center will have numerous opportunities for families to make new holiday memories while also thinking local.
For 30 years, a highlight of products available from the Corn Crib is its selection of inhouse handmade wreaths. This year, the open house event will feature a children's wreath-making area for families to add an original touch to their holiday décor. Santa will be there too!
Add to that a selection of Fraser Fir trees as well as a wide selection of fresh greens and plants with expert staff available for personal service. It's all there at Corn Crib to make the holidays easy.
The Corn Crib Nursery began in 1972 as a seasonal, open-air market and sod farm. In 1980, the business constructed its first permanent buildings and became a year-round, full service garden center including design services.
Locally owned during its 40-year history, it now welcomes a third generation from the White family to the staff. The nursery is open Monday through Saturday, 8:00 am to 5:00 pm and 10:00 am to 4:00 pm on Sunday.
