For our “vintage” customers, Franks is full of memories!To our wonderful Frank’s Fans, It’s been about a month since news of our re-launch at the Novi Home and Garden Show made headlines, starting with the Detroit Free Press on April 13 and followed soon after by 1290 WLBY radio in Ann Arbor and WXYZ-Channel 7 News in Detroit. Response to the news on social media and elsewhere has been AMAZING and HEARTWARMING! The combined total of “post engagements” to these stories has numbered nearly 100,000 and continues to grow daily. THANK YOU for your support!
Our original plan was to conduct a “soft launch,” starting with a nice selection of live plants and an assortment of gardening supplies available on an attractive three- page website. We did not expect to receive so much media attention so soon after the launch – but we are deeply moved by how strong the connection is between Frank’s and tens of thousands of people all over the country!
Our response: We LOVE you, too! And we HEAR you! Plans are well underway to build out a more robust and capable website to include several new departments: arts and crafts, Christmas/holiday, and outdoor living/home décor.
We’re working on establishing strong relationships with manufacturers, suppliers and logistics partners to provide an excellent variety of products at great prices.
And yes, we’ll soon carry T-shirts and other wearables, along with drinkware and other items that will proudly feature that awesome and iconic Frank’s logo – both new and vintage!
We will always strive to meet the needs and wishes of our beloved customers – for example, we’re working on offering a great selection of native plants and even more organic products. Soon we’ll carry high quality Frank’s branded items like garden tools, bird seed, and Christmas lights.
We’re starting our new blog “Frankly Speaking” very soon and plan to host well- known experts to offer ongoing advice and ideas to help you make things more beautiful around your home.
And with any luck (and some strong sales numbers), we plan to open physical store locations in the foreseeable future!
