`Tis the season for retrospectives and reminiscing on the year that was. We all, generally, enjoy revisiting the highlights of the months that preceded. For us here at Purchase Green, 2015 was an incredible year for our now-not-so-small company.
Purchase Green artificial grass has a relatively brief history. The company really got up and running in 2009 with our first store in San Dimas, Calif. But as 2015 dawned there were already 9 Purchase Green locations across the state. Now, as 2015 draws to a close, we’re incredibly excited that there now exist 14 Purchase Green locations!
Our swift growth is driven by our commitment to offering our customers the best artificial grass at the best prices and with the best customer service in the industry – or any industry for that matter. And it’s our customers who deserve our thanks for allowing us to serve them. We go to great lengths to manufacture these amazing artificial grasses, sell them at extremely affordable prices and do it all with a genuine smile and interest in making our customers happy. So to all our new and returning customers this year, thank you. We can’t do it without you.
Back in February, our Murrieta location was the first of the year to open. Murrieta is a gorgeous little town situated midway between the Inland Empire and San Diego. Murrieta manager Leif Hansen has done a tremendous job of establishing a presence there.
Later in the year we had a flurry of new stores open – San Diego and San Clemente opened in Southern California in September and Yuba City in Northern California opened in November. Sean Trichter manages our San Diego store as well as our highly-acclaimed Escondido location. Ashton McMillan runs our new San Clemente location, which is located on the hills above the lovely seaside city. To the north, Shaun and Scott Deitzel presided over the opening of our Yuba City store, which included a tremendous reception from the local chamber of commerce and a community feast anchored by Scott’s slow-smoked brisket.
November also saw the opening of Purchase Green’s new Master Distribution Center (MDC) in Montclair, just a few miles from our original store in San Dimas. The MDC is a massive facility that is helping us deliver more grass with greater efficiency – ultimately meaning even better service for our customers and even greater value.
Next year we’ve no plans to slow down. In early January our new Stockton location will open its doors. Shortly afterward, our new San Rafael-Novato area location will open as well. By Spring there will be 16 Purchase Green locations for our customers to choose from. Beyond that? Well 2016 is going to be another exciting year to say the least.
All of these investments are being made in service of our customers. When you decide to install artificial grass, we don’t want you making decisions on the tailgate of a truck. We want you to be able to be in a store in which you can see and touch our grasses and ask questions of real, live people who know everything there is to know about artificial grass. And if you prefer doing your business online, we’re continuing to improve our website and social media presence. There is so much information available on PurchaseGreen.com – plus live chat with our call center folks if you can’t find the answers you need.
So, as the sun sets on the waning days of 2015, we’d like to offer you our most genuine thanks for making this year such a tremendous one for Purchase Green. And we look forward to continuing to serve you, your family and your friends in 2016.
Thank you and happy New Year!
