A local orchid grower is putting down roots in the West End due to customer demand.

Chadwick & Son Orchids Inc has announced it is opening a new orchid store in the West End in the Gaskins Place Shopping Center. The new space should be ready by September 1st.

The company, based in Powhatan, says the new location fills the need for Chadwick’s many West End clients and helps to meet the increased demand for plants in general. Chadwick’s existing store in the Museum District was recently renovated and will remain.

“Our West End clients have been asking us to open a store near them for years and plants are experiencing a surge in popularity right now because so many people are working from home,” the company said in a news release.

Chadwick & Son has 11 greenhouses in Powhatan and specializes in a service called ‘orchid boarding’ in which clients pay to have their plants taken care of. There are currently over 13,000 plants in production.

“Orchids, in various forms, have been in vogue for over a century – first as corsages, then as collector’s items, now as everyday houseplants,” a company representative concluded.

Chadwick & Son Orchids was founded in 1989 by Art Chadwick and his son, Arthur.
