7 Popular Retail Trends from the 2017 IGC Show

The 2017 IGC show, held August 15-17 at the Navy Pier in Chicago, celebrated 11 years this year as one of the only events dedicated exclusively to independent garden centers. The New Vendor Zone returned this year, along with the addition of a New Product Zone, which was a popular attraction with attendees.

After walking the floor, seven themes stood out at the show that garden centers can use for inspiration to make up displays that sell products with consumer appeal.
