Smith & Hawken to liquidate

News today that Smith & Hawken, the chain of garden & outdoor stores that started out in Mill Valley in 1979, is to liquidate, closing all 58 stores by the end of the year. It's a double blow for Marin, with 70 jobs lost at the company's head office in Novato, and another 30 at the store in Strawberry Village.
