Good Earth Sandy Spring to Close After 43 Years

by Patrick Herron

Good Earth Garden Market at 1610 Olney-Sandy Spring Road in Sandy Spring has announced it will be closing on Wednesday, December 21. Good Earth’s Potomac location at 11650 Falls Road will remain open.  In an email sent to customers, owner David Johannes said that all full-time employees at the Sandy Spring location have been offered positions at the Potomac store and that the first 30 people who stop in to say good bye on Wednesday will get a free 4″ poinsettia.

“It is with a sad heart that we announce Good Earth Sandy Spring is closing for good. It is the end of an era that has spanned 43 wonderful years. Good Earth was originally founded in 1979 and has served the Olney/Sandy Spring Market since then. We’ve moved a few times, but through thick and thin our customers, you, have followed and been loyal. We could not have stayed around for 43 years without you. Thank you.

It’s been a fun ride all these years. I have a lot of fond memories of great customers, wonderful employees, fun seasons and tough work. We’ve learned a lot and it pushes us to keep improving. I’m blessed that 6 employees who started while in Olney high schools, still work for us, spanning 32 years. The full-time staff in Sandy Spring have all been offered positions in our Potomac store. We hope to see you there.
This Wednesday, December 21 will be our last day open in Sandy Spring. We will be open 11-4. There’s a little pottery left, a few swags, some open pallets of soil, a few McCutcheons products and some poinsettias, all 20-50% off. The first 30 people who stop in to say good bye get a free 4″ poinsettia.
I Thank all of you from the bottom of my heart. I wish you all the best and hope that the future brings us together again.
David Johannes
Owner, Good Earth”
