Solty Garden Centre to close

After 68 years in the landscape and nursery industry, Cookstown, Ont.-based Leslie L. Solty and Sons Limited (LLS), and Solty Garden Centre (SGC) will cease normal business operations effective Dec 20, 2019.

“We are very proud of our third generation family business,” says Frank Solty. “A lot of thought went into our decision, but with no one to pass the torch to, we felt it was time to wrap up shop.”

LLS will continue to provide products and service throughout the duration of 2019. Remaining container stock will be sold in the spring of 2020, with any existing field inventory to be sold over the next three to four years, the company said in a media release.

“We have been very fortunate, over many decades, to have had countless dedicated employees, invaluable partnerships with suppliers, and valued loyal customers. To each of these parties we owe our sincerest gratitude,” says Nick Solty.
