’Tis the season for planting, and Alsip Home and Nursery is the place where locals love to buy their plants and landscaping supplies.
Alsip loves providing customers with a huge variety, as well as a fun shopping experience. "We supply most of the landscape contractors in the area with the vast majority of their trees, shrubs and all other landscape materials. Our retail customers can take pride and comfort in shopping where the professionals shop," says CEO Richard Christakes.
Christakes says the company is humbled and honored to be selected Best Garden/Nursery Store. “We wouldn't win without great customers and great Alsip team members who really are the ones that make us Best of the Region,” he says.
The company is planning to add 8,000 square feet of greenhouse space to its St. John location, as well as widening their aisles for shopping comfort.
