Manning has a new greenhouse in town! Just in time for spring planting...How refreshing! Tam Merriman opened a new business called Garden Concepts. The greenhouse is located at 200 Railroad Ave., Manning, IA. Her phone no. is 712-292-9720 or 712-655-3321. Tam and Carol are open for business this weekend, April 27-28. Feel free to stop by and check out their plants. They have vegetables, fruits and flowers.
Please be aware that one of our local Chamber members was recently solicited by a company called Northern Leasing Systems Inc. The NLS sales rep convinced the business owner that he was paying too much in credit card processing fees and to switch to their company to save money. He signed a lease agreement with NLS and received their equipment in the mail but immediately discovered that they were attempting to charge him for fraudulent transactions and charges. After researching the name of the company, it was discovered that several complaints had been filed against the company and it was a rip off and scam. The company, Northern Leasing Systems, also goes by MBF Leasing and other names. Before doing business with an unknown company, be cautious and check with the Better Business Bureau and Internet reviews.
