Landon and Lindsey Loftsgard are the new owners of Panorama Gardens in Panora. Their initial goal, according to Landon, is to keep things running the way that customers have expected during the 70 years that the business was run by the Olson family. Not only are there no immediate plans for drastic change, but there is a process in place to assure continuity.

“Panorama Gardens was in the Olson family, started by Dave’s father, since the early 1950s, and they’re staying on for the next couple weeks to do some training and ensure a smooth transition,” Landon said.

A grand opening event for the new owners is tentatively planned for the spring with the date and details to be announced later.

As the new owners settle in, some expansions are likely.

“Further down the road, we’re looking at bringing in some expanded garden products, like patio furniture and trees,” Landon said. “We’re definitely open to ideas.”
