We are proud of our legacy serving Calgarians as one of the city’s top home and garden centres since 1967.
Launched originally as a small nursery in 1967, the company has grown to be one of the largest Home & Garden stores in Canada. Golden Acre has been inspiring generations of gardeners by being a true gardener’s mecca. The garden centre carries over 40,000 various plants and gardening products and offers a variety of professional services.
Owners Nick and Alfredo met as newborns. Their parents had immigrated from Europe and lived just a few doors down from each other. Born just a few months apart, the boys mothers helped raise each other’s family together. Hard work, respect and integrity were instilled at a young age. Nick and Alfredo have always expressed their gratefulness to have grown up in such loving families. Eventually, as fate would have it, they teamed up as entrepreneurs and eventually bought Golden Acre from the company founder, Wade Hartwell.
Today they have assembled a team of industry experts to provide the knowledge and experience that Calgarians have come to expect from this award-winning garden centre. The company’s mission is to welcome, provide knowledge and inspire others. All employees strive to go above and beyond customers’ expectations to ensure a memorable experience.
Golden Acre is committed to creating a safe and respectable workplace for everyone. To nurture an environment where individuals are supported and comfortable to be the best version of themselves.
