Robinson’s Greenhouse and Farm Market, a fixture along Route 28/66 in Armstrong County for many years, built a new and much larger store last winter. The move proved to be a smart one, as the business has been booming in 2021. Karen Shearer, one of the owners, is more than pleased with the results. “Last year, we were facing making repairs to our old original store,” she said. “After some thought, we came to the conclusion that building a bigger and newer store made more sense.”
The result is a spacious 1,800-square-foot retail building with more than enough floor space and shelving to showcase both produce and jarred foods. On Tuesday, the store’s long front porch was lined with seasonal chrysanthemums. “I just love it,” Shearer said. “We have been able to expand not only the jams, pickles, and honey that we carry, but also many gift items that we have started to carry.”
Shearer said that her daughter, Heather, manages the store most of the time but is away on her honeymoon. On Tuesday morning, Shearer herself was at the produce auction in Belknap. During the season, Robinson’s Greenhouse and Farm Market is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. seven days a week.
