Nothing says Pittsburg like a gorilla.
Take a drive around town and you’re sure to see them tucked among maiden grass and shrubs or colorfully proclaiming Pitt State pride at the edge of a parking lot. In the Garden is proud to have placed them there.
But our business has an even deeper connection to Pitt State than just the statues we sell: We dated while students on campus at Pitt State, where we earned degrees in accounting, education and early childhood.
Our entire family enjoys tailgating and attending football games.
It made sense for our business to offer the community a selection of gorillas of numerous shapes and sizes, from several models you can easily lift in one hand to be placed on a desktop, to the largest, which weighs in at 4,000 pounds and recently was installed at Cox Communications.
As the statues gained in popularity, we added more styles and sizes, and now haul them in from regional manufacturers.
What we love most about selling them is the way they help people and businesses show off their school pride. Across town, they remind residents and visitors what a great connection Pittsburg has to the university.
Let passersby know your pride in Pitt State by ordering one today. We deliver.
