The grand opening of Louiso Feed and Seed, located at 1223 Old State Route 74 in Union Township was held December of 2011. And general manager Mike Strobl says that business couldn’t be better.
“In just the short time we’ve been open we’ve developed one of the best clientele lists of any store locally,” Strobl said. “Everybody who has been in has been in more than once.”
Strobl says that he and owner Rob Louiso are building the business around great products and service.
Louiso Feed and Seed carries pet food, special blend bird seed, and feed for all manner of farm animals, from cattle and hogs to goats and chickens. The store also carries flowers, vegetable plants, seeds, raised bed garden kits, and just about everything else you’d need on your farm or in your home garden.
Louiso says that there is a growing interest in home gardens, which is a good thing for families.
“These days, there’s just not enough family-oriented time,” Louiso said. “One of my early memories is tilling the garden. My grandparents would come out once a week and we’d pick tomatoes, cucumbers, grandma would make a cucumber salad and we’d grill out.”
Louiso’s is making a point of catering to the needs of the home gardener with products like raised garden kits, and the information first-timers need to get started.
“The most important thing is that no question goes unanswered,” Strobl said. “We just want to help everybody as much as possible. We want to make it an easy process because there’s a lot of enjoyment to be had raising things yourself.”
Louiso Feed and Seed is open fro 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Sunday. For more information, visit louisofeedseed.com or call (513) 271-5665.
