CAN YOU WALK IN?

GROBE'S NURSERY YARD, GREENHOUSE AND STORE
ARE OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH COVID-19 PROTOCOLS

FRIENDS AND VISITORS!  THIS HAS MEANT SOME CHANGES TO THE 'TYPICAL' GARDEN CENTRE EXPERIENCE.
Among these are - Social Distancing, More Sanitization of Frequent Contact Points, Hand Sanitizer For All Who Enter, No Ad Hoc Returns, Online Diagnoses of Issues, Controlled Access and more.  We ask for your patience as we do our best to safely permit access to what is here this season.
What about masks? Our staff use them, and we ask you to observe the NEW Region of Waterloo Bylaw that makes their use mandatory.
As limitations continue to be lifted we will be reviewing/altering our protocols in due course. As of August 18th however, we will continue to err to the side of CAUTION until the full effects of Stage 3 re-opening are more fully known.
We are sorry.. but we continue to ask that no children (13 and younger) come to visit at this time.

WHY YOU SHOULD CONSIDER
A GROBE'S CHOICE ARTIFICIAL CHRISTMAS TREE

Grobe's Choice Artificial Christmas Tree has many desirable features:

  • They have a unique pre-assembled foldup style of assembly. This results in very quick and easy set up and take down. There are no colour coded panels or pieces. Most tree styles have all metal hinges for years of durability.
  • They are made of hypo-allergenic material and are flame resistant.
  • It's not how many tips there are - it's how much material is on those tips!  Our trees are full and thick - and don't require tons of decorations in order to look good. You can easily see the difference!
  • The tree needle material contains a UV inhibitor.
  • Most trees contain more than one colour of tree material, and many have quality Polyethylene tips. Both make for an even more realistic looking tree.
  • A heavy duty metal stand is included with each tree.
  • Pre-lit trees have convenient 'step and light' switches so you won't have to crawl under the tree to find a switch to turn it on or off.
  • The Christmas Tree box is compact and in good condition when you receive it.

Q. What are Stay-lit® lights and how are they different?

A.  With a traditional strand of lights on a pre-lit tree, if a bulb goes out on the string it is important to put in a new one for the one burnt out, as the other lights on the string will 'work harder' with fewer lights. Changing a bulb on a light string is neither difficult nor unexpected, but it IS something that folks don't often check upon doing. If a bulb is 'loose in the socket', it is possible that a small portion of your tree will be un-lit. Some very inexpensive trees that are lit in series can have a great deal of the tree go out with a loose socket.

With a Stay-lit® light string, you need never worry about an entire strand of lights going out again or having to climb up a ladder to find that one bulb that is causing the entire strand of lights to go out!

A hundred years from now, a Stay-lit® Christmas light string will never have gone out.  Yes, individual bulbs may burn out from time to time on a Stay-lit strung tree, but the string will never go out – (unless, of course, you cut the wire or a fuse blows!).  The reason for this is that inside of every light socket there is a tiny thermistor microchip that acts as a ‘silent sentry’ to keep the light string operating.  When all bulbs in the string are operating properly, the chip does nothing.  However, as soon as something happens to a bulb – whether it gets broken; becomes loose in the socket; falls from the socket; burns out or whatever – the chip takes over and acts as if it were a bulb to keep the rest of the string operating properly. It even acts as a kind of “surge protector” to protect the bulbs from power surges caused by other bulbs in the string burning out.

It is important to know that the bulb being used in the Stay-lit light string is NOT a proprietary and hard to find bulb. Almost any bulb, with a Stay-lit bulb base, can be used.

Because of the Patented Stay-lit® Technology, the lights last longer than a regular light string, making your holiday display better than ever.
