Rescue Families: Hannah

So many people have asked us what they can do to help with our rescue cause, which has since inspired us to create Alsip to the Rescue! Adoption Center T-shirts. They are now on sale in-store and online for a $16.99 donation.

Rain Rain Go Away!

I just spent last week in severely drought affected California.  While I was there, I visited 15 different large scale garden centers to get ideas to bring our customers in the Midwest better service and so forth.  While I was gone, it rained back home nearly 7 inches.  The storms last night (6/30/14), helped cap off the wettest June in 21 years according to Tom Skilling.  Can we somehow send some of our excess rain to the west?  Unfortunately, science has yet to figure that one out.

Saturday May 17, 2014, Alsip Home and Nursery was filled with carts filled with plants and pet supplies.  What I thought to be a regular day in the Pet Department was about to change in a matter of a second.
