Watch out for this gimmick
Here's a gimmick we've noticed many online retailers using to try to fool you. You might have noticed this one as well.
Here's how the gimmick works...
Unless an online store is truly having a "Going Out of Business Sale," beware when you see a brightly colored banner at the top of the page that says...
- 50% OFF EVERYTHING IN THE STORE! -
With this gimmick a company simply marks the retail price of a all or some of the products in their store to double the average norm. For example, in the ad below, the company has marked a 3-gallon size Encore Azalea plant up to $99.99, which is double the average retail price. NO ONE is selling this size Encore Azalea online for $99.99! Then, so you'll think you're getting such a great deal, they tell you it is now $49.95!
Wilson Bros Gardens offers 3-gallon size Encore Azaleas every day at Our Price of $44.97. We do show an average "Retail Price" on the product page which reflects the average retail price in the marketplace. But we never show this retail price to be double Our Everyday Low Price. That being said, we do from time to time have a REAL sale on specific plants or products in our store. However, if you ever see us mark everything in the store on sale, you'll know we're going out of business. But that isn't very likely considering we've been doing business now since 1989 and have seen positive growth every year, even through the worst economic downturns.
Like any other business on the planet, Wilson Bros Gardens is in business to make a profit. But we vow to never use these types of gimmicks on our customers. What you see on Wilson Bros Gardens is what you get. We price our plants and products as we need to to make a profit, and then allow FedEx shipping calculators to add the charges for shipping. This way, you know exactly what you're paying for, and, as shown above, you're saving money!

Wilson Bros Gardens brings you awesome every day! It is our goal to blow you away with a great selection of the most exciting new and old-favorite plants and trees that have demonstrated outstanding qualities and exceptional performance in landscapes and gardens.
