Park & Garden Store
As in previous years the Park and Garden does not open for retail business during April and the first couple weeks of May. That does not mean we are not busy working. The staff will be delivering over 300 water softeners to member’s sites and working at getting products on the shelves in the store.
Even though we are not open we can still make deliveries of gravel, mulch and other landscaping products. Arrangements can be made by calling Park and Garden at 616-896-9334, please leave a voicemail and we will get back to you to make arrangements for deliveries. If you happen to see us during the day, we can also get you items (holding tank liquids, toilet tissue, etc.) when we are at the store setting up. We will be making bulk product delivery on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday during April and early May with prior arrangements. We will also be open on the Flea Market Saturday, May 1st; 10 am – 1 pm.
We will again be filling propane this year. We fill tanks both 20 and 30 pound and we can exchange an outdated tank with a recertified tank. Sunday is the only day we do not refill tanks. The online rental system is working well, and you can make your golf cart reservations online for the holidays and special weekends. The phone for the rental office is 616-896-9888. You can leave a voice mail and we will return your call within 48 hours. The price for the 4 passenger cars is still $50 per day and the 6 passenger is $70 per day. Remember we rent on a day-to-day basis no longer on the 24-hour program. Carts are available starting by May 1st. Remember Holiday weekends and garage sale dates usually fill up quickly.
We are offering a special on the weekend rentals this year. If you pick up the cart after 4 pm (4 to 7 ) on Friday we will rent the cart for $35 (4 passenger) and $55 (6 passenger) for the Friday and the regular rate will apply for Saturday. Example pick up 4 passenger Friday after 4 and return Sunday by 10 am – the cost would be $85. If you need your boat put in the lake, please call and set up an appointment with the store – 616-896-9334. We can begin boat service in April but will need 48 hours’ notice ahead of time.
Just a reminder to those members who are asking for delivery of your water softener that we will try and get them installed by your request date. Due to the large number, we may be a few days off of your requested date. If you have not ordered a softener for this season, we still have them available. You can find the softener contract online on the Sandy Pines web site. You can also call the store to set up delivery or email ParkGarden@SandyPines.com.
As you begin clean up of your site we have a pressure washer, wheelbarrow, ranks and other tools for rent.
Help needed: We are looking to fill 3 positions at the store and rental office. Check out the employment information and application on the Sandy Pines web site.
Looking forward to an exciting new year
