May 2018 Park and Garden News

What a way to begin the first week of the season! We had snow, freezing rain, ice coating the trees and below normal temperatures. Thank you to our water softener customers for understanding the delay in installing your softeners. Freezing of the tanks would be very expensive.

The park is coming alive again, and in a few short weeks we will be open during regular hours. We are currently installing water softeners and making deliveries by appointment only. Two ways to get in touch with the store is to call 616-896-9334 and leave a voicemail and we will call you back or email us at parkgarden@ Be sure to include your phone number and site number and we will contact you by phone or by a return email.

If you are interested in getting a reservation for a golf cart you can email the information and we will send you a confirmation for the dates you request. Be sure to include the date you wish to pick up and to return; time for pick-up (during store hours); type of cart (4 or 6 passenger); Site number; phone number and email address. You can also call 616-896-9334 and leave a voice mail. The new Rental Office number is not connected as of this date, so please call the Park and Garden store number. Remember that the holiday weekends and garage sale days are very busy so be sure to order your carts early. We have a 24 hour cancellation period, so if you need to cancel a cart order, you can do so 24 hours before the rental time with no expense. If you don’t cancel until the day of the rental there is a one day rental charge.

We have switched to a daily rate for the cart this year and have lowered the charges for the 4 passenger to $50 a day. Regardless of the pick up time, the cart is always due back to the store by 10 am in the morning. You can also reserve the golf carts online by going to the Sandy Pines Website and clicking on the button for reservations.

The Rental office has moved to its new location on the end of the Retail Center building. We will have small tools available for rent this year and will be adding more, as the need arises. The Rental Center hours are Monday–Thursday and Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm; Friday from 9 am to 7 pm; and Sunday from 10 am to 4 pm.

For those wanting to pick up a water softener for self-install, we will be at the store on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from Noon to 1 pm and again from 5 to 6 pm. Saturday will be by appointment only. Deliveries of bulk products can be made Monday, Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Store hours this year will be full time beginning Memorial Day Weekend. We will be open from 9 am to 4 pm Monday through Saturday. We will be open on May 18th and 19th from 9 am to 4 pm. Sunday hours will begin on June 3rd and will be from Noon to 4 pm.

We are currently stocking the shelves for the season and we have several new products this year. Stop by the store and see what we have available for you. If you don’t find it on our shelves let us know what you need, and we will attempt to stock it.

We have secured a new supplier for our 3 and 5 gallon bulk water this year and have been able to lower our price to $4 for the 3 gallon and $5 for the 5 gallon water jugs. We also have water coolers available for purchase.

Remember that even though we might be a little more expensive than the large stores outside the park – The Park and Garden profit goes to help Sandy Pines. We are here to serve you.
