KNOXVILLE (Oct. 18, 2012) – The Knox Cash Mob is headed to South Knoxville once again, and this time the mob will visit Stanley’s Greenhouses and Plant Farm on Davenport Road from 3-6 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.
“Stanley’s is a great local business with deep roots in Knox County, and, like so many businesses in our community, they are being impacted by the current economy,” Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett said. “I hope folks from all across the county will come out to South Knoxville to support this long-standing local business.”
The Knox Cash Mob at Stanley’s will have a fall festival-like atmosphere, which will include hot dogs, hay rides for kids, cemetery tours, games and cash mob specials.

About Stanley’s Greenhouses
A portion of the land that Stanley’s occupies was deeded to the Davenport family by Tennessee Governor William Blount’s half brother Willie Blount in the early 1800s. Agriculture was the main focus from the beginning, and the Davenport Farm became one of the largest wheat producers in Knox County. One hundred years later, growing produce and cut flowers took center stage. Most of these products were sold downtown on Market Square.
In 1955, Charles Stanley, Charlie Davenport’s grandson, built the first greenhouse and began focusing more on horticulture. Gradually growing over the past 57 years, Stanley’s Greenhouses and Plant Farm now totals over 190,000 square feet, including a 36,000 square foot retail center that opened in 2001.
