Brumley Gardens to Replace Repotted by Sept. 16
The 1980s-era gas station that housed native-plant mecca Repotted will reopen as Brumley Gardens, possibly as soon as Sept. 16.
Owner Chris Brumley has been in the profession for 20 years with his store in Lake Highland and landscaping clients in Oak Lawn and Highland Park.
He first took a liking to the location at at 700 W. Davis St. when it went on the market three years ago, his publicist Lana Burnard Rice said.
Repotted sold sustainable, organic plants for two years from the location before closing its doors on Monday. Brumley plans be sensitive to their fans’ needs, but offer an inventory that’s more diverse and could include gifts and decor.
A “grand opening” is planned for mid-October, and will also launch monthly community events – such as workshops – at the store.
“People will be happy to have him as a neighbor,” Rice said. “It’s a great community. He’s very interested in getting feedback from the residents about what they’d like to see.”
