The message on the company website states:
The Linder family has made the decision to close Linder’s Greenhouses Inc. We will be having an orderly wind down of the business in the coming weeks. We would like to thank all our customers, our staff and the Twin Cities community for their support in our 100+ years of business.
Owner Dave Linder, "said losing the needed line of credit, along with the ongoing recession and the 'worst spring I've seen in 50 years of working here' this year forced the decision," reported the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Everything at the Garden Center, located at 70 West Larpenteur Avenue in St. Paul is 50 percent off.
The Flower Marts have already closed for the season, but Linder's had two located in Eagan:
- Kowalski's Market, 1646 Diffley Road
- Rainbow Foods, 1276 Town Centre Drive
There are over 150 messages on the Linder's Facebook page, where the business closing is also announced. The messages note sadness and shock at hearing the news and several said that they would miss the business.
