Local business owner, Ryan Crandol is renovating and reopening Countryside Garden as Mercury Garden Center, located at 220 E Mercury Blvd, Hampton, VA 23669. Countryside Garden Center was recently closed by owner Tish Llaneza on November 30th, after 19 years of business.
Mr. Crandol, is also buying Mercury Mulch next door. “I listened to the public outcry and overwhelming support for Countryside and when the opportunity came up, I was able to take the leap, with business partner Debbie Wheeless, to manage both locations,’ Mr. Crandol said.
“The garden center will be a similar environment to the one that Tish created successfully for 19 years,” Crandol explained, “we’re excited for our future and re-opening this community garden center doors in mid-February next year.”
