HARRISONBURG, Va.--A garden center has seen 50 percent fewer customers this spring compared to last year.
Rodamers owner Chuck Rodamer said last year, spring broke at the beginning of March. Therefore, by the second week, the garden center was up and running strong.
However, this year, with some snow in March and colder temperatures, Rodamer said fewer customers have made their way to get plants.
He thinks they may be still doing maintenance to their garden.
He said it's one of the most challenging springs his store has gone through in more than 40 years.
" We've had a pretty good day, the last Saturday here in April. But we should have been swamped and I think what it is that people. At least I hope what it is, is that people are getting a really late start this year," said Rodamer.
According to Rodamer, the business will have to catch up in sales this year. However, on the landscaping side, business is doing well.
