Wingard’s Market, a plant and flower market, is expanding its Gift Shoppe to allow for more merchandise from local and regional retailers for customers.
The Gift Shoppe, which dates back 121 years, is located beneath decades-old pecan trees. Over the last year, it received a facelift with an additional 600 square feet of retail space, a handicap ramp, as well as new paint and windows.
“The gift shoppe is the original Wingard’s homestead house, and it will continue to be the focal point of the business,” said Wingard’s Co-owner Wally Steinhauser. “As our business continues to grow, so do our client’s needs, and we want to be able to serve them the best that we can by offering more products and a little more comfort while they shop. The house is a symbol of our heritage, and now, it is also a sign of our future.”
Wingard’s is hosting a Holiday Reopening Celebration November 5-6, which will feature some of the Lake Murray items and gifts plus more new things, including gifts for men and kids, as well as other outdoor-friendly items.
Customers can also take a look at the Wingard’s Holiday Gift Guide, which features local and statewide products like The General’s Hot Sauce from Columbia, Toadfish from Charleston and the 2021 Lake Murray Ornament, which was designed and manufactured by Wingard’s.
The Wingard’s Market Holiday Reopening Celebration will take place from 9 am – 6 pm November 5 and from 9 am – 5 pm November 6.
Beginning November 21 – December 19, Wingard’s will be open Sundays from 1:30 – 5 PM. It will be closed on December 24, 25, 26, 31 and January 1 and 2.
Wingard’s is located at 1403 N Lake Drive, in Lexington.
