Hey everybody! Dave Skillin here and you have just caught me and my old Chevy on the way to the Skillin's Brunswick Open House!
Years ago, like back in 1969, when my brother John and I were running things at Skillin's, we bought a small house and garden center in Brunswick in the New Meadows area (close to West Bath). Now the Post Office calls it 422 Bath Road and that area sure is bustling now. We are just beyond Midcoast Hospital about two miles or a little more beyond Cook's Corner.
This weekend we are having our 39th Annual Spring Open House and we sure have made some changes to the store over the years. We've made a lot of friends in the Bath/Brunswick/Topsham area and I can't wait to see a lot of them this weekend at the Open House. Plus, the area has grown so much so I hope to make many more friends this weekend!
We have more new products than I have ever seen and they will all be on display this weekend. We have a great nursery display and also we have just got in some fresh new nursery stock and perennials for you to see!
We have more door prizes than ever before (including a drawing for a $500 gift certificate and two $250 gift certificates!). We will have tons of refreshments as well so you won't be going hungry or thirsty at Skillin's!
Just about the whole store is on sale PLUS you can print off the coupon in the post below and save $5.00 on any merchandise you purchase.
Finally, we are getting down to the last few days to purchase Spring Bonds--my nephew Terry's idea where you pay us $37.50 and we give you a $50 bond that you can use on trees, shrubs, plants, tools, fertilizer, gifts, flowers (the whole shebang practically) right here at Skillin's.
So, don't forget to buy a Spring Bond although the really smart shopper will buy a lot more than one! $37.50 for a $50 bond--that is a 25% savings and you can't make that kind of money anywhere today!
Well, my car and I will be in Brunswick this weekend so come see us. And see that snow in the background? It won't be in Brunswick! It is Spring at Skillin's!
