Smith and Hawken Closing Its Doors

After 30 years in the garden business, Smith and Hawken is closing its doors. The website, catalog, and call center have all shut down, and you can expect sales storewide starting today. Smith and Hawken gift cards will be honored at the stores during the closure process. With over 50 stores across the United States, this is a sad day for employees of the company.

In a prepared statement, Jim Hagedorn, chairman and chief executive officer of ScottsMiracle-Gro, which owns Smith and Hawken, said:

We would have preferred to sell the Smith and Hawken business in order to protect jobs and keep the retail franchise intact. However, after discussions with several potential investors over the past 12 months, it became obvious that shutting down the business was the best option available.

Do you shop at Smith and Hawken? Do you know anyone who works there? Are you sad to see it close its doors?

This is too too sad - I loved them. Their garden tools were great.

Sad news to hear they are completely shutting down. I've bought in the past the most beautiful glass ornaments from them and terra-cotta pots from England.
