Featured Business: Country Sunshine

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.

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 and their customers come to them from all over 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 offseason 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.
