What You'll Get
Plants, mankind’s greatest enemy, are finally on the ropes thanks to global warming. Teach your children how to hunt the last of these enormous nitrogen junkies by observing them in captivity with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of the leafy villains, plus tools, garden décor, soils, furniture, and much more from Chalet, the North Shore's one-stop shop for green thumbs. This Groupon is not good toward Chalet's landscaping or other services, including delivery and planting.
Chalet stocks its 4.8-acre retail center with thousands of chlorophyll critters, including botanical buddies plucked from Chalet's own nursery in Salem, Wisconsin. When they're not giving plants rubdowns on the undersides of their leaves, more than 100 earthy retail employees (up to 350 seasonally) can help you pick out an African violet ($4) or a host of sprouting vegetables (starting at $3). Nab cache pots for $3 or a gurgling fountain for $40. Birdhouses made from recycled, century-old barns ($24) attract brightly fluttering worm-eaters, and a bag of soil laced with nutrients ($4) satisfies even the pickiest sprout. You can even get an outdoor chair ($99), a bag of dog food (starting at $14), and floral body lotions (starting at $9.75).
Though the 93-year-old, family-owned Chalet claims that its business goal is to create "garden solutions that exceed your imagination," saxophone plants are sadly unavailable, and you cannot pay with expired bologna. However, Chalet's massive inventory guarantees you'll find a plant to match everyone's personality, from the standoffish paeonia to the enthusiastic, misunderstood barrel cactus. Use your Groupon to bring some healthy color and green energy to your space, or give someone special a gift of renewal and life.
No orders can be placed over the phone. This Groupon is valid for in-stock merchandise only.
- Excellent inventory in every category, knowledgable help, well-cared for plants, the works!! What a pleasure!! – Honor S., Yelp
- A visit to Chalet Nursery feels like a trip out of town. The retail store is well stocked with a variety of houshold [sic] and gift items. It is well staffed and they do a great job of merchandising. – Kent B., Yelp
- I have been to every garden center within a 50 mile radius (probably more) of Chicago and Chalet it definitely my top choice. The selection is incredible. – Becky B., Insider Pages
