STOREWIDE SALE & Owner Retirement

December 26, 2023

To our loyal customers and employees,

It is with bittersweet emotion and heartfelt gratitude that I share with you my retirement and thus the closing of Cataldo’s.  The store will officially close on January 31, 2024.  Joe and I started this business in the Spring of 1986 as a nursery to support his landscape business.  We never could have imagined then what it would become.  It has been a great and fulfilling business adventure, but now is the time to say farewell and thank you.  Cataldo’s has truly been a small family business.  Our parents, siblings, children, nieces and nephews, and grandchildren have worked here, helping us grow it to what it is today.  In addition to our family, we have been blessed to have an amazing staff who are dedicated, talented, hardworking, and a pleasure to work with.  I could not have run this business without their efforts, support and friendship.  We are part of a wonderful community and are grateful for our patrons who have supported us the past 37 years.  We have watched many of your families grow and we know that our store has been a part of your holiday traditions, and that has been really special.  I have thoroughly enjoyed helping our customers find the perfect gift, identify problems with their plants, or simply get into the spirit of the season.  I will miss it all, but I am excited to start the next chapter of my life with Joe, our children, and our grandchildren.

Thank you all for your continued support of our small family business.  Wishing you all good health and happiness in 2024.


Dale Cataldo
