Under a Foot Plant Company and its STEPABLES brand recently created a point-of-purchase plant display contest for nationwide independent garden centers. This year’s winner is the Andersons Inc. garden center and nursery, in Maumee, Ohio.
The “Best in Sole” contest included a check for $2,500 for the winning garden center to give to its favorite local charity. Garden centers that chose to participate submitted digital images of their STEPABLES retail displays, using Good For Your Sole Point of Purchase materials and display gardens that featured STEPABLES varieties.
“The contest is an exciting way for STEPABLES to help authorized garden centers support their local communities,” stated Frances Hopkins, founder and president of Under a Foot Plant Company. “The winner will be chosen based on showcasing the most creative use of STEPABLES plant material and signage in an environment conducive to shopping, which is fun to look at and engaging for the customer’s imagination.”
The Andersons Inc. garden center and nursery chose to give the $2,500 donation to The Maumee Valley Habitat for Humanity.
STEPABLES was named the GPN/John Henry Co. Creative Marketer of the Year award winner in June.
