BELLINGHAM, Washington – The owners of locally-owned and operated Bakerview Nursery and Garden Center are calling it quits after 42 years.

The nursery has been a popular spot for Whatcom County gardeners since Toni and Larry Clark opened it in 1971.

Toni Clark says she and her husband are retiring so they can spend more time with family.

Clark says they hope to sell the Bakerview Road property to someone who would develop it into an eco-friendly community space.

There will be a series of promotions and special events in the coming weeks leading up to the closing on September 30.
