Founded by Harold and Nina Wells in 1937, Wells Nursery is a third-generation family owned brick-and-mortar business employing local people, buying locally sourced goods and services, paying local taxes, and generally supporting the local community. Wells Nursery recognizes the importance of the Lincoln Theatre and is pleased to express its support in tangible terms.
The Lincoln Theatre has the bold mission of entertaining, informing and inspiring the diverse Skagit County community through cinema, live performance and educational programs. The Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation is a non-profit organization with a very small, highly dedicated staff, a large body of invaluable volunteers and an intensely loyal membership of 1,000 or so mostly Skagitonians committed to preserving the historic Lincoln Theatre. Located in downtown Mount Vernon, the Lincoln Theatre is a cultural cornerstone serving all of Skagit County. We greatly appreciate the support of local businesses and encourage you to support them, in turn.
And now a few words from Neil and Susan Hall and Wendy Ragusa, owners of Wells Nursery: Wells Nursery was founded by Harold and Nina Wells in 1937. As a third-generation family-run business we are constantly evolving with the needs and wants of the nursery industry. From our first plant introduction Chamaecyparis obtusa 'Hinoki' King' in 1950 to our ever popular Cornus kousa koreanisis 'Ruby Slippers', introduced in 1997, we continue to seek out and develop new plant varieties of the exceptional quality that our customers have grown to expect.
Our retail division is open to the public all year long. Located along I-5 in Mount Vernon, WA, we offer a large selection of the grafted conifers that we field grow personally, a great selection of Japanese Maples, plus hundreds of other trees and shrubs perfect for your home or professional landscaping project. Our retail location is also home to our propagation & production crew. For the trees that we field grow, this is where life starts.
Our founder, Harold Wells, said in his first plant list …
"There is no substitute for quality."
We did not coin that phrase, but from the 1930's to present time, these six words have been our motto, and that will never change.
Wells Nursery Retail Division is located at 1201 Blodgett Road in Mount Vernon

We trust that you appreciate the importance of The Lincoln Theatre to Mount Vernon and all of Skagit County. The Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation, which is solely responsible for the operation of The Lincoln Theatre, is a non-profit organization relying heavily on memberships and the generous sponsorship of local businesses and individuals, both in cash and in kind, as well as ticket sales to fund daily operations. Local Merchants Love the Lincoln spotlights local restaurants and other retail establishments that have graciously consented to support The Lincoln Theatre financially by contributing a percentage of gross revenues for a specific date. We encourage you to patronize these local businesses at every opportunity, not only on the date of the promotion, but throughout the year. Your participation costs you nothing, but clearly benefits specific local businesses and, thereby, the local economy, in general. Those local businesses then share that benefit directly with The Lincoln Theatre. If your business would like to participate in sponsorship of The Lincoln Theatre, or if you know of another community-minded, locally owned business, please contact us at your earliest convenience.
