The St. John location of Alsip Nursery is first in the “Best Garden/Nursery Store” for good reason. Since 1994, Northwest Indiana residents have flocked to the 17-acre site, where you can purchase everything from flowers to home and garden décor. There is also a full-service pet section, which includes a vet clinic and grooming services.
Co-owner Richard Christakes credits his knowledgeable staff, many whom have been with the company for more than a decade, for providing excellent service to those who visit the nursery.
Another bonus for the location is the spacious greenhouse, which is open year-round.
“Even if it’s five degrees outside, you can still come in and walk around and see flowers,” Cristakes said.
