The garden supply industry supplies beginner and advanced gardeners with all sorts of essentials like potted plants, outdoor furniture, flowers, ornaments, seed, fertilizer, plant and flower pots, soil, sod, sand, shovels gloves and accessories. Garden supply stores often provide gardening lessons and group events so that customers can improve their skills and socialize in the process. Garden supply shops are similar to other home improvement stores but since they specialize, they have many more garden related products to choose from. Stores are typically owned and run by managers and staff with extensive golfing knowledge. Many garden supply shops operate within large hobby chains like Home Depot and Lowe’s and Menard’s but family owned and operated single location and multi-location garden supply shops continue to thrive in communities all over the world.
Operating a garden supply shop requires a central location within a community. Some stores offer online purchasing and delivery as an additional convenience. Other garden shops operate exclusively online. These exclusively web-based garden stores often specialize in unique items that are difficult to access as demand is limited. Web based ordering is common as an offering for local pickup at an in-town location. Garden shops are typically staffed with managers, stock laborers, knowledgeable sales associates and cashiers. These enterprises often run using on premise software and software-as-a-service (SaaS) technology. Such applications offer inventory records, employee management, point of sale, online ordering, billing, shipping, invoicing and garden supply payments.
