Episode 23 of The Growing Revolution, we spoke with Kristin and Mike Weeks of Fifth Season Gardening in Asheville, North Carolina. Ryan Blankenship manages their Greensboro location and has his own YouTube channel, Growing With The Beard.
Fifth Season has been around for over 20 years, and besides indoor gardening supplies (including Smart Pot products), they also sell other “urban DIY supplies” and products for making cheese, wine, beer, beekeeping, etc.
They have a great focus on their customer and their experience. As we talk about in the show, retail is a “dying industry.” With that said, brick and mortar retail will never completely die, and actually, stores that focus on the customer and creating an experience can, and do thrive!
We greatly appreciate Mike and Kristin for their time.
