CHESTERTON | The time has come again to fill your ponds and streams with beautiful fish! Whether you have a pond of your own, or just love the simple grace of the gliding Koi, come by Chesterton Feed and Garden Center on September 21st and 22nd where Koi Ron will be selling his prize-winning Japanese and Butterfly Koi. You will have the chance to admire these delightfully colored fish between the hours of 9 am – 2 pm on Saturday, and 10 am – 2 pm on Sunday.
Koi Ron is originally from Indonesia, and has been a leading retailer of Koi fish for over twenty years. Many of his customers have gone on to win competitions in the Koi arena, which has lent to his already vast customer base in the Midwest. Chesterton Feed and Garden Center has hosted Ron and his fish five times over the past few years, and Chuck Roth, Owner, hails the events as great successes. “Our customers love to come to the store and watch the Koi that live in our pond. Those that have ponds of their own are always on the lookout for beautiful fish like these. Ron has provided an impressive variety of Koi for our customers. I couldn’t be happier with our partnership.”
Koi Ron features a wide array of adult and young fish, and all carry excellent markings and colors. This event is coupled with the Wild Bird Fall Migration Sale, which runs September 18th – 23rd, and is a must for bird enthusiasts everywhere. Steam-a-Feeder is another service that will be provided on Saturday, 9 am – 12 pm., for a $4 donation per feeder. Customers may bring their bird feeders in for winter cleaning any day of the week. 100% of proceeds will go to the Indiana Dunes State Park Birding Program. The cleaning, which prevents the spread of mites and diseases among birds, will be done by Dan’s Carpet Cleaning in partnership with Chesterton Feed and Garden Center.
“We are entering fall with a bang,” said Rachel LaCorte, Manager of Chesterton Feed and Garden Center. “Autumn colors are already appearing; what’s better than beautiful fish and birds to get us started?”
Koi Ron’s fish can be purchased by cash only. Visit Chesterton Feed and Garden Center’s website for a list of the week’s sales. For additional information or directions, call 219-926-2790.
