Family-owned businesses team up to provide the best in outdoor living

Farmington Hills— April 9, 2021 — Farmer John’s Greenhouse will hold their annual Spring Open House on April 17 and 18, but this year, they are partnering with Paulson’s Audio & Video to provide the most complete outdoor experience possible. This two-day event at Farmer John’s will provide a safe learning and shopping experience throughout their large indoor/outdoor showroom.

Shop Local

Just a mile and a half apart from one another, Farmer John’s and Paulson’s have been serving the greater Farmington area for over 70 years combined. Both are run by 2nd generation owners with family – and folks who have become family – throughout their teams.

Farmer John’s opened in 1978. Brad Zoner, is the current head of operations, and is extremely proud to be a Michigan-based family-centered small business. What began as a small nursery and now has grown to an upscale garden center with everything from exotic houseplants to fan-favorite garden staples, furniture, umbrellas, grills, and more. Add in The Boutique at Farmer Johns, carrying one-of-a-kind fashion, gifts, handbags, and jewelry, and you will find there is something for just about everyone.

Paulson’s Audio & Video opened in 1992 and has grown from a 2500 square foot “traditional” TV and audio shop to an over 9000 square foot showroom. They have the largest display of TVs in Metro Detroit, and offer a wide range of the best products for residential and commercial audio, video, networking, and smart home tech. Whether clients want to stop in to pick up a new TV or plan out a smart home system with indoor and outdoor environmental and entertainment controls, or anything in between – Paulson’s has the best brands and best prices around.

On Saturday April 17 from 9am-7pm and Sunday April 18 from 9am-6pm, Farmer John’s will welcome the community to their annual Spring Open House.
