July 27, 2009 10:09:38 AM PDT
All sales are final and the discounting has started at Smith and Hawken stores, including this one in Rosemont.

Earlier this month, Scott's Miracle-Gro, which bought the 56-store gardening chain, suspended online sales and announced that all Smith and Hawken stores would be closing before the end of the year.

Jim Hagedorn, CEO of the Ohio-based chain, blamed the closures on "the weak economy and the lack of scale."

Regular Smith and Hawken shoppers, like Nancy Nord of Radnor, Pa., were sorry to hear the news.

"I thought it couldn't be true, " she said. In the meantime, prices on live plants have been slashed 40%.

Lawn furniture is reduced 30%. An Avignon lawn chair, which originally sold for $499 in on sale for $349.

And everything else in the stores is at least 20% off.

A garden pagoda, which was $239, was reduced to $160, and is now just $100.

And $19 ceramic planters are on sale for $13.

There are four Smith and Hawken stores in the Philadelphia area, in King of Prussia, Rosemont, Marlton and Princeton. For the exact locations of Smith and Hawken stores in our area, click here.
