Nehouser Closes Its Doors After 35 Years

Fort Wayne, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) — Citing low sales due to the dought and bad economy, Neuhouser Nursery and Gifts announced Tuesday that they will be closing its doors.

After 35 years of business, the company also cited not being able to retain their line of credit through their bank after the lending industry eliminated their small business lending department.

“Regardless of attempting to meet such challenges,” Kenton Neuhouser, owner, says “I am so very happy & grateful to have been a part of the Ft. Wayne horticulture & business community for so long.”
“Having been voted the favorite 2 Garden Centers again in 2012, and the 2nd Best Landscaping Company, my staff and I are ever appreciative for our loyal customers – the best we could ask for! Many of whom we know by name, and will miss very much.”

All remaining contracted work will still be completed, as promised.

Neuhouser continued, “Please know that the closing of Neuhouser’s was not a planned incident – and we worked very hard to avoid this ultimate outcome. I truly regret any inconvenience this may cause any of our customers.”

“In addition, I am forever indebted to the best staff ever in all 35 years who have truly given their heart & soul by working overtime against the elements with optimism, hard work, & dedication right up to the end. They did not shy away from the tough challenges.”

“They – as I – hope that we will be remembered fondly, as we tried for so many years to bring beauty & the harmony of nature to your home.”
