Welcome to Downtown Home & Garden – a century-old retailer located in the heart of downtown Ann Arbor. Since the Hertler family opened the store in 1906, it has evolved from a livery stable and feed mill into an urban emporium for garden supplies, plants for your house (and in season plants for your garden & home), classic housewares, durable outdoor clothing, quality dog gear, and unique kitchenware.
We love to showcase our rich history, but we survive by our willingness to adapt to change. We strive to make ourselves ever-more useful to you, and our community, by providing trustworthy information and full service. Our mission is to filter out poorly made or useless, trendy items. We choose products because we believe in their worth. We shop for you as though we were shopping for ourselves – always with an eye to longevity and value. Our business is long-lived, and the products we sell will endure as well.
