Wichita Falls,TX. - It's been a gardening staple in Wichita Falls for 64 years, but today Smith's Gardentown Farms closed it's doors.    

People from across Texoma came out to grab some great deals and bid the business goodbye.
Flowers and gardening supplies were all marked 75-percent off for the end of business sale.
Life long customer Don Weaver says he hates to see the business close because there is no where like it in town.

" I don't like that at all, their a great place, there's not another place in town that you can shop and find all the product you need that smith's carries , it's a one stop place and we hate to see them close," says Weaver.

Katherine Smith is a third generation owner and says they are closing down because of fears about the drought.

She says they have enough water to take care of their plants but customers are afraid they won't be able to maintain what they buy if we go into stage four.

"It's kinda disappointing that our city did not have a better plan for getting more sources of water before we get this to this point," says Smith.

Katherine says they hope to be able to reopen in the fall but it all depends on the amount of rain we get.
