As garden centers across the United States are ordered to close their doors to comply with existing shelters and social distancing measures to slow the spread of COVID-19, Little Prince of Oregon Nursery has launched a new program online reference to help businesses maintain customer service and compensate for losses without requiring cash outlays.

No web setup, no technology, no inventory management, just an opportunity to continue delivering plants to customers and money to the bank. The new program is called Garden Center 911 and aims to create a low-input income stream for garden centers at a time when income is imperative for survival and face-to-face interactions and transactions are severely limited.

Mark Leichty, Business Development Manager at Little Prince, says: “One of our core beliefs at Little Prince is that the best place to buy Little Prince plants is your local garden center. This is the first message an online shopper sees when they walk into our online store, and it will never change. He continues, “We know that many garden centers have temporarily closed due to COVID-19, and we want to help support the businesses that have supported us for so many years.”

Commenting on the program, Shaina Froehlich, Garden Center Manager at Froelich’s Farm and Garden Center in Pennsylvania, said, “In a time when the future is unknown, Little Prince of Oregon is bringing a beacon to the independent garden industry. For the 2020 season, our first day of operation was also the last day before we were forced to switch our sales to curbside pickups and local deliveries only. Little Prince of Oregon’s Garden Center 911 program gives us the opportunity to create a source of income, even when our doors must remain closed.
