In 1969 a group of six St. Louis area Nursery and Garden Centers formed United Garden Centers an advertising co-op. The members would all buy products from the same vendors to accrue as many co-op dollars as possible. The members combined their own advertising budgets along with their share of the co-op money to promote the members and the group through print, radio and some TV advertising both spring and fall.Currently we have members in four midwest states Missouri, Illinois, Kansas and Iowa.
Membership in United Garden Centers allows your business to remain independent. Requirements for membership are simple, we look for: quality, clean, well run businesses, with an established history of knowledge, service and credit worthiness. If you are interested in information about joining United Garden Centers use the contact page to reach us.
This project was exciting and fun from the beginning. They needed a quick turnaround, only a month, and we were certainly pushed to succeed and succeed we did.
Using high quality, gorgeous photos and our client providing all the content ahead of time made this project a breeze. Planning is key to design and UGC helped make that easy for us. The photos we used entice the users and a members-only page for vendors to give discounts flesh this website out to a well-rounded, functional site.
