TLDR: Quick Grow is a Mom & Pop Grow Shop, been around for 30 years, are a family business, good people, a little gem of a store in Calgary, have made their own nitrients and LED lighting system and are updating their website
I wandered into a Mom & Pop grow shop in Calgary, Canada few months ago looking for some plant food. It has been operating for 30ish years, they started out when Mark their founder formulated his own plant nutrient system back in the 80s. It became very popular so he started selling it then other things too and eventually a shop was needed and a family business was born. Over the years an extended family from the local community has formed around the place, the neighbors frequently pop in for a chat and a chuckle and people call in by phone for plant or lighting advice all the time.
As the business grew and established itself they then designed and had manufactured a modular LED system for growing indoor plants, a specific light for each stage of growth. Any combination of the individual lights can easily connect together in a frame just plug and play.. Superior quality LED’s are used and the housing is aluminum. Fully safety certified for sale in North America to a trademarked company. They are excellent equipment.
He even made a 3 and 4 foot tubular LED light specifically for Vertical Scrogging…
Not too shabby for a lil Mom & Pop store huh?
The nature of Mom & Pop Stores however means they have struggled to get on the web properly and let people know about their products. I thought that this state of affairs was criminal when I found out so I put them a half decent website together in my spare time, loaded their products onto it, made them look as good as I could and got the shipping all figured out.
Now we can play with the content… 🙂
