Honoring the History of Shorty’s Garden Center

Shorty's History Timeline
Shorty’s Vancouver location was formerly Bishop’s Garden Center, which opened in 1958. It mainly sold bark dust, along with a few plants. The original Shorty’s Nursery was started by Ron “Shorty” Fournier at the former Ridgefield location. It sold trees, shrubs, and bark dust.

In 1988, Ron “Shorty” Fournier sold Shorty’s Nursery to Jeff Day, who added garden products and expanded plant sales. In 1996, Jeff Day joined Ed, Betty, Brian, and Ines Mahoney to purchase Bishop’s, making it a second Shorty’s location. They modernized the stores, enhanced product selection, and changed the name to Shorty’s Garden & Home.

In 2016, Dennis’ 7 Dees purchased Shorty’s under the new name Shorty’s Garden Center. The Ridgefield location closed its doors in early 2020, while the Vancouver garden center location stepped up to service a larger community. In 2022, Shorty’s officially becomes Dennis’ 7 Dees.
