Master Gardener Ciscoe Morris to appear
A longtime Issaquah institution is celebrating its 80th anniversary with a day full of free food, giveaways and a visit from a Pacific Northwest gardening icon.
Grange Supply has been in business since 1934, starting as a Renton-area diesel pump before relocating to Issaquah in 1943 and expanding into the all-things-gardening, farming and pets outpost it is today.
The store will celebrate its eight decades of operation from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sept. 6.
“Eighty is a big milestone, so it would be great to celebrate with our community. We are so grateful to them for sticking with us so long,” said Alex Prus, who handles marketing at Grange Supply.
