12 Great Ideas From Flamingo Road Nursery

Flamingo Road Nursery in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., opened only 10 years ago, but it’s already renowned in the industry for its smart business practices.

In early February 2015, Flamingo Road’s owner Jim Dezell gave me a tour of the bustling store. He and manager Erik Friedli spoke several times about ideas they wanted to try, others they had tested and abandoned and why they are using the ones that were on display at that time. That quest for excellence is the reason the store had a full, bustling parking lot.

Take the chance to learn from their experience. From innovative ways to get a polished new logo to boosting sales at checkout, here are 12 ideas you may want to use in your own store.
