GrowGeneration Corp. (NASDAQ: GRWG), (“GrowGen” or the “Company”) the nation’s largest chain of specialty hydroponic and organic garden centers, today announced its acquisition of Mendocino Greenhouse and Garden Supply, a Northern California-based hydroponic garden center, located in Mendocino, California. Mendocino Greenhouse and Garden Supply serves growers in Northern California’s Emerald Triangle – the largest cannabis-producing region in the country including Mendocino, Humboldt, and Trinity counties. As one of the original garden centers in Mendocino, sales are expected to surpass $8 million annually.
“As the country’s largest legal cannabis market, California continues to be a critical market for GrowGeneration,” said Darren Lampert, GrowGen’s CEO. “The Emerald Triangle continues to represent tremendous market potential. We are proud to expand our presence in the area through a highly respected and leading hydroponics store such as Mendocino Greenhouse and Garden Supply. “
Founded by Nick Halfacre, Mendocino Greenhouse and Garden Supply has provided Northern California growers with specialty hydroponic supplies and professional horticultural consultation services since 2005. Mendocino Greenhouse and Garden Supply’s team of eight employees will join GrowGen’s team of over 600 grow professionals as part of the transaction, while Mr. Halfacre will stay on as the garden center’s General Manager.
Said Halfacre, “Mendocino Greenhouse and Garden Supply was founded by growers for growers, and that ethos is at the center of everything we do. We look forward to continuing to provide best-in-class supplies and services under the GrowGeneration name.”
