Rose Emporium to close its S.A. store
I just read about this. This is sad news!
The Northeast Side nursery has operated in San Antonio 14 years, attracting gardeners in search of old roses and other hardy plants and hosting everything from garden group meetings and seminars to weddings.
Business has been good here, says owner Mike Shoup, but he is going to consolidate and focus on his operation in Independence, near Brenham, and the mail-order and wholesale side of the Antique Rose Emporium.
Once a property appraisal is complete, Shoup said, he will list the 21-acre site for sale. About half the property lies in the Cibolo Creek flood plain. He will continue to maintain the property until it's sold, but the business will close in mid-July.
