    Waterloo Gardens will be closing its Devon location some time around next spring.

    Waterloo Gardens, one of the largest and most diverse garden centers in the tri-state area will be selling, and subsequently closing, its original Main Line location in Devon, Pa.

    Waterloo Gardens, which just celebrated its 70th anniversary in April, will consolidate operations to its facility in Exton, Pa.

    The closing of the original store follows the October 2011 passing of owner Linda LeBoutillier. She ran the gardens with her husband Bo. Waterloo Gardens continued its operations under Linda’s son and long-time president Bobby LeBoutillier.

    Bobby LeBoutiller believes customers who have shopped at the Devon location will continue to support them, even though they may be disappointed over the news of the closing.

    “We are confident, however, that our customers will continue to shop with us at Exton, as it is larger and easier to navigate and has many seasonal family-friendly activities that were just not practical to offer at the Devon location. We remain committed to our customers and will continue to provide the excellent service, unique products, and extraordinary plants and flowers they have come to expect over the past 70 years.”

    The Waterloo Gardens in Devon will remain open for the rest of 2012 and possibly until next spring.
