Members of the Centerville Chamber of Commerce came together to recognize local business and long time Chamber member Country Sunshine.
The local business operates year round at their 544 Broadway location together with other local business the Sewing Room. But this time of year, for approximately two months, they also operate their greenhouse location just down the street at 603 Broadway, next to the Centerville Steakhouse.
Owners Gary and Eleanor Knutson handpick their product from their distributor so they can bring in the highest quality greenhouse products available. It’s at this seasonal location where Country Sunshine sells flowers, vegetables, herbs, rose bushes, and perennials. They also carry some miscellaneous garden items, like pots, potting soil and shepherds hooks.
They have been able to build a client base from around the region. Their customers come for the greenhouses reasonably priced plants and produce. Last year Country Sunshine sold over 350 hanging baskets of plants and they plan to surpass that number this year!
Country Sunshine has been in business since the year 2000 and a Chamber member ever since. The seasonal greenhouse has been at its current location for five years and it continues to grow in popularity. In the off season County Sunshine is often able to do custom orders for seasonal flowers too. They do Easter lilies in the spring and poinsettias for the Christmas season.
Country Sunshine is open Monday through Friday, 9am to 6pm, and Saturday and Sunday approximately 9am to 4pm, May 1st through the last week in June. They will also be open Memorial Day weekend.
They are dedicated to serving the community's greenhouse needs at an affordable price.
