Nursery owner Kurt Keller has watched town grow around him
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Kurt Keller and his wife Laura worry that the Oracle Road widening project will limit customers’ ability to access their business.
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Kurt Keller owns Keller Nursery and Landscaping, which stands across the street from the Wal-Mart-anchored Oro Valley Marketplace. Undaunted by the specter of competition posed by the big-box store, Keller anticipates setting his business apart by focusing on customer service and landscaping. The road work on Oracle, however, poses a different problem for the business owner.
Randy Metcalf/The Explorer, Kurt Keller has run his business in Oro Valley just south of Oracle and Tangerine roads since 1999. The new shopping center across the street will include a Wal-Mart with a nursery.
