Smith’s Labor Day sale a hurricane benefit

Smith’s Gardentown will offer folks a chance to help out victims of Hurricane Harvey during Labor Day weekend sales.

“We had already planned a big sidewalk sale for the weekend,” said Katherine Smith. “Now we are going to make it even better by pledging a portion of all our sales this weekend to the Salvation Army for Hurricane relief.”

End-of-season bargains on trees, shrubs, bedding plants and garden accessories will now be parlayed into a benefit for hurricane relief, and Smith has a personal connection to the rescue efforts.

“Two of my sons have been in Houston and Beaumont area all week with our flat-bottom boat helping people reach safety. They have seen first-hand how many people are affected and how difficult the recovery will be,” Smith said.

Most of the merchandise on the sale area will be at least 50 percent off regular price, with some items reduced even more. 

Smith has been anxiously following her sons’ efforts as they maneuver through the flooded areas.

“We’re proud of our (son) Michael Fiore, who took the Smith’s Gardentown fleet (consisting of one jon boat) to help evacuate folks from Houston neighborhoods,” Smith posted on Facebook. “This little, flat-bottom boat was able to go places the big boats could not. Because they were in shallow water, Michael and his friend from College Station waded and pushed so that more folks could fit in the boat.”

Hours for the sale are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday; Noon to 4 p.m. on Sunday; and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, Labor Day.
