Strange’s @ West Broad St. will have a variable amount of customers in the store based upon time of day and re-stocking operations. We estimate store capacity at 30 customers. This is subject to change.
Temporary In Store Hours: Monday – Friday 10am – 5pm Saturday 8am-5pm Sunday: 10am – 5pm
Curbside Pick Up Hours: Monday – Friday 8am-10am* –
We have separated the hours for pickup in order to afford adequate spacing in the parking lot for customers seeking enhanced social distancing. We will do our best to accommodate pickups outside of these hours, but extra spacing may be limited.
Curbside Pickup Updates:
In order to expedite orders and reduce the need to call in your order, we have created an online Wish List:
A team member will call/email you if there is a question about your wish list and/or when your items are ready for pickup.
Depending on product availability and order complexity, time between Wish List placement and fulfillment may be 1 to 2 days.
Retail Floral Delivery is still available!
Our Floral Delivery staff can deliver to residences. Funeral Homes and Hospitals are a case by case basis. Strange’s is NOT delivering to retirement communities or assisted living facilities.
In order to protect our staff and visitors, Both Strange’s Retail locations will be open only for curbside pickup OR delivery of Garden Center and Floral Product. Existing Floral orders will be unaffected.
Thank you for your patience while we learn this new process together. We will be open for cash & carry and casual shopping as soon as possible!
Please call ahead and a team member will search our inventory, pick, pull and make ready your blooming plants, vegetables, soils or any other item from our store, for curbside delivery to your vehicle.
Delivery orders will processed as normal.
West Broad St: 804-360-2800

Strange’s retail facilities are still open. We are still delivering to recipients able to accept deliveries.
We are taking protective measures throughout our facilities including, but not limited to:
High touch surfaces are being disinfected frequently (counters, door handles, cooler doors etc)
Areas that can not be cleaned easily and efficiently are closed (in example: manual touch doors)
Team member areas have been segmented to reduce exposure risks (please use designated restrooms!)
We are practicing social distancing (please excuse team members that stand more than 2 arms lengths away from you!)
We are practicing safe touch procedures (please excuse team members with hands in pockets, this keeps us from touching things we shouldn’t!)
We are asking customers to leave containers and garden supplies home for the time being. We will gladly repot things for you AFTER this issue has passed
Hand washing and cleanliness supplies have been situated throughout the facilities
We are setting up and practicing our curbside pickup for Garden Center/Greenhouse product. (please be patient as this is a new skill for us)
We are running ventilation systems where possible (please excuse the fan noise in the greenhouse)
We have postponed scheduled classes regardless of class size.
Strange’s will be suspending delivery of floral product to Retirement & Assisted Living Communities in our service area until further notice. Many of our Retirement & Assisted Living Community peers are screening visitors and redirecting deliveries. This is part of a wider public effort to stem the spread of COVID-19. The Centers for Disease Control have identified these communities as high risk and halting delivery of non-essential goods is in their best interest.
