Garden Centers of Colorado member thank you for entering our 2nd annual awards competition for the best indoor display, best outdoor display, and most creative event.
The most creative event that we did this season was to promote a “Gulley’s Garden Give Away” we decide that it was time to give back to our community that been supporting us for over 30 years. The contest was to determinate who has the most need for a new garden makeover to be done by us on our store anniversary June 25th. We got over 50 applicants, we advertise it in our annual news letter (15000 customers) our weekly email newsletter (over 2700 customers) also we did in store advertisement, and a weekly newspaper add. (We were expecting more response). We got a lot of stories from our customers but the one that won was an older couple story were 3 of their neighbors nominate them because they have cancer and don’t have any kids to help them. It was a great way to give something to our customers but it was a lot of work. I don’t think that we will do it again since it was a lot the effort and advertisement for not enough feed back. !!!But we had fun!!!
