Sally Halstead, owner of Roger Reynolds Nursery and Carriage Stop in Menlo Park, sent out this message to customers yesterday:
“It is with a heavy heart that I announce that after 97 years in the same location serving the residents of Menlo Park and the surrounding communities, Roger Reynolds Nursery & Carriage Stop has closed its doors for the last time.
“This has not been an easy decision. Despite all our efforts since the severe economic downturn of 2008, our business has been unable to adequately recover.
“I thank the generations of loyal, faithful customers who have supported the Roger Reynolds tradition these many years. On behalf of my family and staff, I thank each and every one of you for being with us. Your patronage and support has been most valued and appreciated. Thank you!”
