The Smith family made this announcement on Facebook :

It is with plenty of excitement and sadness amongst our family that we announce the retirement of Ray as the trusted leader of the Marigold Nurseries Legacy. It is with plenty of mixed emotions that we, as a family, have decided to make these upcoming months the last for Marigold Nurseries Ltd. Our extended Marigold family here at the garden centre also have many mixed emotions and will be working with us to make these last few months the shopping experience you have all come to love!!! We appreciate your loyalty as Marigold members and THANK-YOU from the bottom of our hearts for continuing to shop with us till the end.
We will be open for a full Fall and Christmas season with fresh product always available to the day we close. Our planned close date is December 24th, 2015.
We have a full press release coming out in the Seaside Times September issue. At this time we appreciate your patience with us when asking questions of the details as we do not fully know them as of yet.
