Cornelius Nursery Opens New Location
Cornelius Nursery has opened its second Houston-area store in Katy, Texas. The store, located on a 2.5-acre site, will celebrate its grand opening on Feb. 22.
Cornelius Nursery is owned and operated by Fort Worth-based Calloway’s Nursery, which has 19 stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Calloway’s decided to open a store in Katy because it is one of the fastest growing cities in the greater Houston area.
The store will provide a new, exciting shopping opportunity designed to inspire locals in their gardens and their homes. It will have approximately 4,000 square feet of indoor retail space that will feature home décor, seasonal decorations and a custom design center for adornments such as wreaths or garlands. The open concept outdoor shopping area will encompass 30,000 square feet and showcase Cornelius Nursery’s latest offerings in trees, shrubs, groundcovers and more. A 9,000-square-foot greenhouse will provide additional space to display tropical plants, flowers, lawn decor and other gardening products for sale.
The original Cornelius Nursery store opened in Houston in 1938. Similar to the location on Voss Road, the Katy store will resemble a classic, Texas farmhouse with a rustic stone-covered exterior and wraparound porch. The surrounding flowerbeds will be expertly-landscaped to provide seasonal gardening inspiration for shoppers.
“We always look to open new stores in thriving communities that are experiencing rapid population growth, like Katy, so we can be a knowledgeable gardening resource to local families,” said Calloway’s Nursery CEO Marce Ward. “Our team strives to make gardening fun, easy and successful for customers by offering the best plants and products for sale, as well as expert advice from the numerous Texas Certified Nursery Professionals in our stores.”
