“If any item breaks during the warranty period, we just turn around and hand you a new one right off the shelf. Most stores have to take the broken piece and mail it out and wait for a new one to be shipped to them. This is immediate satisfaction for the customer.”
This store is awesome. The staff is wondeful. I havent received customer service like this in over 20 years. Everything they explained to me worked perfect for my indoor garden. My tomatos are so perfect my neighbors want to start there own indoor garden. I will tell everyone about The Grow Show.
Lemerand says there has been a rush of interest in starting new gardens over the last few years.
@ Shadow Manager, do you mean most people with respect to the over all population, or those so inclined?

Szachta also is charged with six counts of illegally capturing or distributing images of an unclothed person, each punishable by up to five years in prison; two counts of using a computer to commit a crime, each punishable by four to 10 years; one count of possession between 20 and 200 marijuana plants, punishable by up to seven years and possession of an excess of 45 kilograms — nearly 100 pounds — of marijuana or 200-plus marijuana plants, punishable by up to 15 years.
Brad R. Szachta, 33, of Ypsilanti, faces 10 felony charges in connection with a pair of spy cameras found hidden in the unisex bathrooms at Ollie Food and Spirits, 42 E. Cross St., last May and the discovery of the grow operation in his basement, according to an Ypsilanti Police Department report obtained by MLive/The Ann Arbor News through a Freedom of Information Act request.
YPSILANTI, MI – A highly sophisticated marijuana grow operation in an Ypsilanti man’s basement was shut down after the homeowner was arrested for allegedly hiding cameras in a restaurant bathroom.
Szachta is free on a $5,000 personal recognizance bond.
The production and sale of recreational marijuana in Michigan was approved by voters in 2018 with recreational shops opening for business in December of 2019. But Szachta does not appear to be a licensed grower, according to a search of the state’s Licensing and Regulatory Affairs database.

While talking with police, Szachta admitted to having a grow operation in the basement, but denied owning anything police found, claiming those items belonged to a friend, the report said.
Police seized 38 live plants in various stages of development, 10 five-gallon buckets filled with loose harvested marijuana, a storage tote filled with loose harvested marijuana, several large trash bags filled with marijuana, a locked freezer filled to the brim with 50 vacuum-seal bags of marijuana and notebooks full of handwritten grow records with calculations of yields and expected profits per grow, records show.
Szachta was identified as a suspect in the hidden camera investigation, and police obtained a search warrant for his home May 24, according to the report.
