Oak Cliff nursery Repotted will close, replaced by Brumley Gardens
Sale items are available through Sunday, July 29.
OAK CLIFF The Oak Cliff nursery Repotted is closing at the end of July. Situated in an old Conoco gas station that dates back to 1936, the garden is being replaced by the Dallas-area nursery Brumley Gardens.
"It's devastating," said Jamie Laws, co-owner of Repotted.
The business was behind on their rent but Laws said it had never been a problem before. She and Elizabeth Cummings rely on increased business in the fall months to help make up for smaller sales in the summer.
Whether Repotted will set its roots somewhere else is to be determined. "At this point, we need to just get through this and regroup," Laws said.
Repotted will offer sale items through Sunday, July 29. Here is the email Laws and Cummings sent to their customers:
With heavy heart we must announce we're going to be closing the shop at the end of July. We attempted to find a new location, but our efforts didn't pan out. Brumley Gardens will be moving in August 1st. Be on the look out for their opening date.
We have loved getting to know you all, loved getting to be a part of the community, and we have appreciated your support through droughts and freezes and all the rest.
Looking forward to seeing you all around the neighborhood. Now we might just have time to attend all the terrific garden and park related events we've been writing about the last two years.
We're selling everything (aside from consignment items) at half off this weekend and then whatever is left will be 75% off next weekend. We'll be closed aside from watering next week. If you'd like to buy anything and can't make it this weekend or the next, give us a call.
Elizabeth and Jamie
