Received a comment from Marc who say's he is an employee of Smith and Hawken. He say's, "on Feb 3 2009 there is a VERY important meeting regarding Mr Farrahâ€™s analysis of Smith & Hawken." According to Marc, "if given the chance, I think he (CEO Pat Farrah) will be bringing back the glory of days gone by. If not, Scottâ€™s will close Smith & Hawken and it will be completely gone by June 1 2009." We have talked about Smith and Hawken before.
If fellow business owners wonder why gift card sales we're down this Christmas, the comment from Xris (Flatbush Gardener) right after Marc's comment explains why.
