Over the past 35 years, Bert R. Hybels, Inc. has focused on servicing the independent garden centers throughout the Midwest. Unlike many of our competitors who try to cater to both the box stores and the independents, we feel that our focus has made us stronger in plant offerings, quality, sales support and product branding. It is in these strengths that we feel we're able to offer our customers the Independent Advantage™.
Plant Selection & Quality
By selling to only independent garden centers, we've made a point of offering not only the highest quality of plants but also a huge variety. We have over 180 different 4" perennial offerings, 200 bedding plants, 70 different herbs and 85 varieties of vegetables. With such a vast selection your customers are sure to get a diverse selection of plants that they won't find at the box stores. Our growers also make a point to use only the highest quality seeds and cuttings to make sure your customer has success in their gardens. Unlike our competitors who might be more focused on saving a few pennies by offering inferior genetics, our concern is your customer and the success of their garden.
Over the years we've learned the importance of having a strong sales staff...not only in the sense of selling, but in forming a partnership with our customers. In a business where the window of opportunity is short it is important to have the help and advice of a sales professional that is familiar with your market place and weather. Our team has the experience and is ready to help!
With many box stores having a huge advertising budget and often using plants as their loss leaders, it's important to offer your customers items that differentiate you from the mass merchandisers. We've developed brands that will help set your store apart and allow you to advertise on a local level making it harder for your customers to price shop. We are proud to offer Chef Jeff vegetables, Gardeners Choice perennials, Natures Finest premium annuals and Garden Stars annuals (just to name a few) exclusively to our customers. To complete the look, all of these lines are complimented with point of purchase signs and banners which will make your displays stand out and look more polished.
If you are looking for a supplier who is 100% exclusive to independents, offers greater plant selection and quality, customer support and exclusive product branding then only Bert R. Hybels, Inc. offers you the Independent Advantage™.
