Sometimes the solution to a problem makes the problem worth having. Such was the case at Perry Wellness Center when a sign placement problem had a perfect solution.
The roadside along East Furlow Street, adjacent to Rudy’s Happy Patch Market, is now too hard to accept our normal display signs – the type whose metal “legs” are planted into the earth. Despite the recent abundance of rain, the earth refused to budget on our little corner.
After some thought, Perry Wellness Center founder and CEO Stuart Perry and an enterprising manager, Kelly Jansen, came up with a solution that not only advertised market produce but provided a visual display of one of the market’s most popular items – Knockout roses. As readers can see from the photo above, the signs legs were placed in buckets of the roses, whose planting soil provided a more yielding environment.
Stuart is pleased with the results, saying, “The solution to this problem for sign display seems to work. We can also place the vegetable and fruit displays along with the popular roses. This will remind passersby and customers of our inventory.”
In the photo, the new signs and holders await placement along the streets adjacent to Happy Patch Market, where they will welcome visitors with a message in true living color.
