SEARS — After months of construction and preparation, the folks at Morgan Composting are getting ready for the Big Weekend.

Mothers’ Day is an important holiday ... no doubt.

The team at Morgan Composting are making the Mothers’ Day weekend, (May 6, 7 and 8), even more fun and exciting with the Grand Opening Open House at their new farm and garden store located on U.S. 10, just east of Sears and west of M66.

“We’re very, very excited about the upcoming celebration,” said Allison Dudley. “This has been a lot of work, and we’ve really been dedicated at trying to keep our expansion as “local” as possible in order to really reinvest in our community.

“We’re hoping a lot of people from throughout the area will come out and join us in our Open House and Grand Opening celebration.”

For years, locals and visitors to the area have been stopping by ‘the shed’ to pick up a bag of mulch, a truck load of composted manure, or a bucket of bird seed.

Now, the Morgan team are ready to serve them in a very expansive retail operation that will give many more options to shoppers in need of garden and feed supplies close to home.

“We’re proud to be part of the growth of the Evart area, and Osceola County as a whole,” said Morgan Composting owner Brad Morgan. “This expansion is a good indication that we are growing and will continue to try and grow as a locally based business,

“Businesses in our community can succeed — even in a tough economy.

“This is a good place to live, and a great place to do business.”

The crew out at Morgan’s are looking forward to a good time this coming weekend.

“We’re offering 15 percent off on everything, all day Saturday,” reported Dudley.

“We’ve got a lot on the shelves and we’re hoping folks will come out and get acquainted with what we have to offer.”

In addition, there will be video presentations at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. explaining what Morgan’s is really all about.

At noon, Brad Morgan will take on the role of Master Griller, and slap meat on the barbecue in order to feed friends, visitors, and all comers.

“We’re really looking forward to a great day,” continued Dudley.

“We hope folks from all over the area will come out and join in the fun.”
