Pandemic closed 36th St. Garden Center & Bistro. Now it will close for good

Saltzer Health

On March 18th, like so many others, the 36th Street Garden Center closed its doors.

The unique business, which blends a garden center, gift shop and bistro, reopened today. But not for long.

“The 36th Street Garden Center & Bistro will be closing our doors for good this spring,” managers wrote to customers. “Due to the current financial realities and uncertainty brought on by the Covid19 pandemic, we have sadly decided to end operations.”

The store will open each weekday and Saturday from 10am to 6pm for a liquidation sale.

“We hope to see many of you at the sale and look forward to saying ‘thank you’ for your patronage in person,” they wrote.

Customers on Facebook expressed sadness and best wishes.

“Since I moved to Boise this has been my favorite place to visit and introduce people to,” Sarah McCusker wrote. “Such a lovely venue for a bite to eat or simply a latte and stroll through the center ogling over the quality goods and plants for sale.”

Boise’s Terteling family launched the business in 2007 at the corner of 36th St. and Catalpa Drive near Hill Road.

In a letter the business posted when it first shut down in March, they lamented even the initial temporary closure.

“Thank you for your patronage and for the kindness you have shown us throughout the past twelve years,” managers wrote. “We are proud of the memories and food we’ve created. We will miss all of our Bistro customers and staff immensely.”
