Bremec on the Heights prepares for spring season
As temperatures rise and the snow disappears, Bremec on the Heights is getting ready to reopen its doors to gardeners in the Heights.
According to Jessica Mitchell, marketing director, some "spring favorites" with Bremec’s customers are pansies, fruit trees, and annual and perennial plants. Bremec also offers organic lawn care items, such as fertilizer, soil, pest and disease control products, as well as garden décor items, such as fountains, statuary and pottery.
This year, Bremec is marketing custom gift baskets with the slogan "Your Vision is Our Creation." Bremec has also begun selling Tokyo Milk beauty products and recently finished remodeling its shop at 13410 Cedar Road. The remodeling was completed in late winter and the building now has a "more open boutique feel," said Mitchell. "It has much more light, and easier access to our goodies and gifts."
A fundraiser for the Home and Repair Resource Center (HRRC) is planned for April 22–May 5. For every purchase made with an HRRC voucher, a portion of the proceeds will go to HRRC. Vouchers will be available at the store, throughout the Heights, and at HRRC’s office at 2520 Noble Road. This fundraiser has become an annual event in recent years, and Mitchell said that Bremec holds fundraisers for many nonprofit organizations throughout the year.
During the winter, when garden sales decrease, Bremec staff plan and prepare for the spring and summer planting and growing seasons. During April, Bremec will be open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays.
