Outdoor Living Supply Acquires Willow Creek Landscape Supply

Outdoor Living Supply ("OLS"), a distribution platform with a focus on outdoor living products and solutions, announced today that it has acquired Willow Creek Landscape Supply (Willow Creek), a full-service distributor of natural and manufactured stone, hardscapes, nursery and other landscape products. This acquisition expands OLS' footprint in the Georgia market.

Located in Rome, GA, Willow Creek Landscape Supply was founded in 2005 by co-owners Russ and Shala Head. Russ and Shala will continue with OLS during the transition of ownership, ensuring continuity for customers, suppliers, and employees.

"We are honored to welcome Willow Creek to the OLS family of companies," said Brian Price, CEO of Outdoor Living Supply. "Russ and Shala have built an amazing team and a customer-centric culture that aligns with OLS' values and mission. Willow Creek's location and nursery offering make it a great addition to our existing Georgia network. I look forward to seeing what our combined teams will accomplish together."

Russ Head, owner of Willow Creek, added, "I am very proud of the business we have built over these past 19 years. Deciding to partner with OLS at this time was the logical next step. OLS shares our commitment to delivering exceptional service and products, and this partnership provides a runway to take this business, alog with our employees and customers, to the next level. We are excited for Willow Creek and OLS to kick off this next phase of growth."

Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP served as legal advisor to OLS.
