Since 1969, Alsip Nursery in Frankfort has been providing customers a large selection of grills, flowers and trees, and gardening necessities.
The store is located on about 10 acres, and employs more than 150 people during the peak summer season, said co-owner Richard Christakes.
The company has a 140,000 square foot greenhouse in LaPorte, Ind., where it grows 90 percent of the flowering annuals the company sells.
With a second location in St. John, Ind., Alsip Nursery employs full-time landscape designers and have 3-dimensional landscaping planning capabilities, so the designers can work with customers to provide the garden of their dreams.
“We’re a unique store, and do a lot of things other stores don’t,” he said.
