Email from Smith & Hawken today:

Dear Apartment Therapy,

Smith & Hawken today announced it is closing its stores and
liquidating the company. This liquidation process will occur over the
next five to six months, which means we expect to phase out the
business by the end of the year. The closure process, which is being
managed by third-party consultants, begins with storewide sales on
July 9. Store closures are expected to be completed by the end of the
year. Orders via Smith & Hawken's Web site, catalog and call center
will be discontinued effective July 9, and customers will be directed
to purchase products at the stores. Smith & Hawken gift cards will be
honored at the stores during the closure process. Smith & Hawken has
56 stores in 22 states and Washington, D.C.

Sincerely,

Brigid Harris
Director of Marketing
Smith & Hawken
