Sure this store does not (and can't possibly) offer the same variety, quantity, or price as those big national home improvement stores, but what they can offer is more personal help. That being said, they do have a great selection of orchids and water plants you won't find at those same stores. Here you'll find 2 or 3 knowledgable and helpful employees--capable doing more than just watering plants--covering half the area of the big stores. If it's a hot day, they'll make sure and tell you to go straight home and not leave the plants in the car. If there's ants (happens w/potted plants at every store), they'll spray it for you before you bring them home.
