DULUTH, Ga. - Napa Home & Garden, Inc., a home accents and garden wholesaler that filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on July 5, has announced that the company's assets have been acquired by Teters Floral Products, Inc., a permanent floral and decorative accessories provider.
Transaction details were finalized on Aug. 4, after the two organizations entered into an agreement for Teters to purchase assets related to the core Napa Home & Garden business, according to a press release from Teters.
Napa also announced that the company is taking orders as normal and shipping from its facility located here as Napa Home & Garden, a division of Teters Floral. Napa founders Jerry and K.C.
