Trip to Growers Outlet

Left home before sunrise to arrive before the crowd, I thought! Parking lot was near capacity when I arrived at 7:30 AM. Everything I went to purchase was out of stock, but the truck from the greenhouse was unloading and they said they would bring some of the plants I wanted over in an hour or so, so we left and went to another nursery several miles east of there to pick up a pre-order.
Returned to GO about an hour later and couldn't get off of Hwy 78.
Traffic was backed up on the Hwy in both direction. All of the parking was taken at the service stations on the corners and a business across the street! Finally found a parking place at a business on the Hwy and walked over to GO.
They were unloading another truck, but still didn't have the plants I wanted. Came home and made a vow, to NEVER go there again on Saturday morning during the Springtime!

Sundays are not much better!!

RE: Trip to Growers Outlet

That must have been a very disappointing trip. I have never been to GO before but would love to go sometime. I guess I'll do it on a weekday though. Thanks for the 'heads up'. Went to Lowe's in Buford today and the garden center was packed with shoppers too.

RE: Trip to Growers Outlet

It is definitely much better during the week, but it's crowded then, too. Just not crazy crowded. Sorry your trip was a bust!

Next year I'm going earlier in the season!
