Williamsport, Pennsylvania — The produce building of a popular 75-year-old business was torn down Thursday to make way for a new one.
Tebbs Farms & Greenhouses announced Wednesday on Facebook that demolition had begun on the current building on Four Mile Drive.
“After several years of planning, we finally take the plunge. Demolition has begun on our 75 year old building and we will be starting from scratch with a building that we are very proud to show everyone this summer!” the post read.
A new the retail space will open in June, according to the publication. By Friday, the commercial building was completely demolished.
The family business was started in 1948 by John and Mable Tebbs with a retail outpost on Four Mile Drive in Loyalsock Township. The Tebbses grew their own produce on their farm in Montoursville and eventually began growing flowers and garden plants in greenhouses.
In 2006 his son John and daughter-in-law Robin took over the business. Opening the retail space from spring through late December, Tebbs is known for its produce, flowers, plants, and other agricultural-related products. They also sell Christmas trees during the holidays.
