Quincy nursery announces remodel, renovation
Bergman Nurseries, a long time Quincy business known for plants, shrubs, landscaping, and irrigation, has undergone a major renovation at their facility.
The construction project includes a new 24’ by 35’ vegetable greenhouse and a 96’ by 105’ greenhouse for shrubs and perennials. The new greenhouses have incorporated state-of-the-art irrigation, lighting, ventilation and even a sound system.
“We’re planning for special events in our greenhouses, so we wanted to do it right”, says Todd Friye, President.
While they broke ground on July 28 of 2016, the project has been in the planning stages for four years.
Every aspect of the project was considered to provide the best possible customer experience. The larger space makes grouping and finding specific plants more convenient.
Concrete aisles have replaced gravel walkways so shopping is more comfortable. The aisles between rows of plants are wider. New carts make it easier for customers to load their selections.
And there’s a centrally located building for customers to check out more efficiently.
“We’re very excited about our growth. Gardening and landscaping has always been our passion. The new greenhouses and layout allows us to provide customers with more selection, easier shopping and greater convenience.”
“And, we’re not done yet. Fryie added. “We have plans for more renovations in the future. But we have Phase One ready in time for spring planting season”.
Bergman Nurseries opened in 1939, tracing its roots back to Herman Bergman and his three sons Les, Don and Bill.
