MASON CITY — Mason City-area residents who are fans of Stillwater Greenhouse soon will no longer have to drive to Orchard.
The greenhouse is opening a satellite location in the Family Time Furniture parking lot at 3701 Fourth St. S.W. on April 20.
“It will be a portable greenhouse, like the grocery store does,” said Stillwater Greenhouse owner Daniel Zimmerman.
Stillwater Greenhouse, founded in 1999, features flowering plants, vegetable plants and garden-fresh vegetables, as well as outdoor decor, compost, seeds and potting soil.
Zimmerman said it seemed like a good idea to open a location in Mason City because Stillwater Greenhouse draws a lot of customers from this area.
He said he was looking for a spot along a heavily-traveled road and “an opportunity presented itself.”
Stillwater Greenhouse now has its own website, www.stillwatergreenhouse.com.
