Summer Hours and Roadwork Fun
April 27, 2016 / Penny
Concerning Nice, Long, Summer Days
Summer is just around the corner! Or… we think, we hope, that summer is just around the corner! We’re crossing our fingers.
Anyway, we’re going to go ahead and act like summer is just around the corner and announce our summer hours! Starting May 1st, Perennials Preferred will be open as follows:
Monday: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Tuesday: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Wednesday: 10:00am – 6:00pm
Thursday: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Friday: 10:00am – 6:00pm
Saturday: 10:00am – 6:00pm
Sunday: 10:00am – 6:00pm
You’ve heard the adage that there are two seasons: Winter and Construction. Well, winter is over, and with this sunshine-y new season comes a grim gauntlet of steamrollers, jackhammers, orange cones, and detour signs.
We’re still trying to get all of the details, but we’re given to understand that, intermittently throughout this coming summer, much of Mayfield Road (east of County Line Road) will be closed. Fear not, loyal customers! Perennials Preferred will be open and reachable.
If you find yourself coming our direction and see a “road closed” sign blocking your path, don’t be discouraged. You will still be able to reach us by turning onto Mayfield road from Caves Road, just east of the store. For all other approaches, there will be detour signs up to point you in our direction.
We’re still working with the Department of Transportation to confirm dates and details, and we will keep you posted as you know more. For now, if you want to find us and you can’t, give us a call at 440.729.7885, and we’ll be happy to guide you!
