Green Acres, a popular plant nursery with five locations in the region, announced Wednesday that it will be opening a new location in Citrus Heights.

The location will be at 6128 San Juan Ave., across from Kohl’s shopping center at San Juan Avenue and Greenback Lane.

City spokeswoman Nichole Baxter said plans include a 24,297-square-foot building with an additional acre of outdoor and greenhouse space. Construction is expected to be completed in Spring 2021.

Green Acres released a statement on social media this week officially announcing the plans and said the company is “excited to be part of the Citrus Heights community.”

Baxter said there will be a partial demolition of the existing vacant building involved, calling it a “adaptive reuse.” The Sentinel observed debris being removed from the back portion of the building on Thursday. The front facade remained intact.
