Paulino Gardens, the popular retail gardening store and nursery that has operated in Denver for nearly 60 years, has announced it will close this summer.
In response to comments on its Facebook page, the store at 6300 N. Broadway confirmed plans to close, and said its last day of business will be July 31.
An employee at the store on Tuesday confirmed the plans to close.
The store traces its roots to 1960, with the Paulino family initially selling vegetables they grew themselves. It’s now one of the state’s largest full-service nurseries and garden centers, according to the store’s website.
Acres of land around the greenhouses are home to various trees and 8,000 roses, the store’s website said, and the garden center is filled to capacity year-round.
