Hi! My name is Crinda and I am the Manager of For The Wild Birds.

My friend was the first owner of this small business. She started the store back in 1995 but had to close it down in November of 2007 because of a decision to relocate to Arkansas. She needed help in putting everything on clearance and, being a stay-at-home mom at that time, I had some time on my hands to contribute assistance.

So, I volunteered.

For the next 7 days of working to close the store, loyal customers came in expressing their regret in seeing a small establishment close down after years of being in business. It became clear to me that it was a treasured place and a lot of people were sad to lose it.

I had no knowledge of running a business – let alone a seed store. But I knew from the atmosphere I had been during those 7 days that it was something I was willing to learn about and wanted to be a part of.

Because of this newly-found passion, I bought her inventory and kept the store open.

I didn’t know anything about feeding birds so I asked our loyal customers to teach me everything I need to learn. With their patience and enthusiasm, I acquired all the necessary information and know-how in running the business. Surprisingly, it became a new hobby for me – something I never thought I would enjoy so much.

I have already passed the family business to my son, Grant, who is nearing his last year in college. Like me, his desire to serve others unselfishly is his number one motivator in managing the business. Our team at the store also share the same perspective when it comes to their work.

It doesn’t matter if a customer comes in to buy our products or simply talk about birds – we give them all the same warmth and attention. We make sure to greet them by their first names and accommodate all their queries from seed deliveries to identifying new birds in their yards.

We treat each other like family the way we do our customers. This personal relationship that we have established with each and every one of them is what sets For The Wild Birds apart from others.
