    The Planters Exchange Story

    The year is 1928 and The Planters Exchange is the new farm supply and hardware store on Havana's corner of 7th and Main. The store's warehouse is located by the old depot back on 2nd Street (where the current complex sits today). The business becomes a booming success, and the first of many evolutions is about to occur. With a chronological hop to 1932, a new 3000 square-foot store and warehouse combination has been erected. The growth continues during World War II and into the fifties until the complex expands to it's current size of 34,000 square feet spanning a city block. During the subsequent years, the business evolves into plants, gifts, and garden decor. It later takes on a completely new face with retail shops before temporarily closing it's doors.

    On May 1st, 2001, the sleeping giant was re born as a shopping mall emphasizing antiques and collectibles. the complex was designated a National Landmark in 1999. In record time, the 14,000 square-foot renovated section now boasts over 60 dealers, a large consignment area and a Southern Charm Tea Parlor and full restaurant. The outside pavilion houses Rudy' Produce, Preserves, and Plants. The greenhouse located next to the front of the mail entrance offers garden and patio furniture and accents. The Art Trail Shops boarding 9th Avenue house a dry-cleaning business and alteration shop, a tanning center, beauty supply store, a Dixie Outfitter outlet, and office space.

    Second generation owner, Wayne Gregory, is proud of the building's history and it's role in the Shade Tobacco era. the concept which is unique to Gadsden County and inspired by techniques used in Havana, Cuba. Mr Gregory hopes to preserve the memories of those times by establishing a museum in one of the original buildings on the property. He also plans to continue expanding the renovation effort to include a meeting center and more.
