A grand opening and ribbon cutting for a new local business, The Plant Niche, is planned for this weekend.
Owned by Erika Mayorga and business partner Olegario Gutierrez of Como, The Plant Niche offers interior house plants, interior plant scaping, interior plant maintenance. and workshops. Mayorga, whose father was in the landscaping business, decided in 2015 to focus on interior plant scaping and obtained her business degree. The business focuses on designing home or business spaces to the aesthetics that best fits the space and lighting. She said she plans to offer some big species of plants that are typically only available from larger merchants in the Dallas area.
A soft opening for the business will be conducted at noon Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2021, with the grand opening to follow at noon Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021, at The Plant Niche, located at 222 Tomlinson St. in Sulphur Springs. Community members are invited to stop by as Mayorga presents her concept to Sulphur Springs during these openings.
