New ‘Horizon Express’ Store Opens

Horizon Express, a new concept in professional landscape distributors, recently opened a new location in Greensboro, N.C. This convenient “mini Horizon” is a 2/3-scale shopping area that can now be found inside the SCP Distributors location at 600 Pegg Road, Suite 119 in Greensboro. Horizon Express offers many of the basic products that landscape and irrigation professionals need.

According to Scott Bennett, operations manager for Horizon, “Horizon Express gives our valued customers the convenience of one-stop-shopping while introducing Horizon to a new marketplace,” he stated. “The new venture doesn’t represent 100 percent of Horizon products, however customers will get the same great level of customer service Horizon is known for. Horizon Express offers industry leading products including Vista Professional outdoor lighting, Rain Bird, Hunter irrigation products along with Firestone and Sure Pro pond products. Horizon Express will also offer basic fertilizer and select chemicals for the landscape maintenance customers, with the same, familiar look and feel of the bigger Horizon stores.” For the landscape, irrigation, and maintenance professionals in Greensboro and surrounding areas, this conveniently located Horizon Express store will help save time and money because there’s no need for driving around town, stopping at several different stores. You can fax ahead a list of needs, and the Horizon Express team will have your order waiting.

The new store concept also opens up a whole new world for SCP Distributors customers who plan to get into landscaping. With Horizon Express located only a few steps away, they can expand their service offerings and increase their profitability. With a wide variety of products, combined with Horizon’s industry expertise, pool construction and maintenance workers can now offer more complete backyard maintenance.

“The store looks great, and everyone has had positive things to say about the new concept,” Bennett said. “This is an ideal time for us to reach out and positively affect the industry and our customers.”
