Green Acres Nursery hiring this week in Elk Grove

Green Acres Nursery & Supply is hiring as it plans to open a new Elk Grove location this year.

The planned 27,500-square-foot garden center will be the fourth for the local retail nursery business, joining locations in Folsom, Roseville and Sacramento. The Elk Grove store will be near Highway 99 and the Bond Road offramp.

The company earlier said the store would have 50 employees and another 50 seasonal workers.

It also will be the first Green Acres location to be built from the ground up.

The nursery’s previous method of store opening has been to convert existing retail space into garden centers.

A hiring event will occur Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn, 9241 Laguna Springs Drive, in Elk Grove. The company is hiring cashiers; people to carry out purchases; plant maintenance workers; irrigation experts; people with knowledge about plant pests; and sales people for plants, soil, fertilizer and patio furniture.

Call The Bee’s Bill Lindelof, (916) 321-1079.
