Thank you for letting us help you solve your problems. One kind customer put it simply, "McGuckin is help just around the corner," and we couldn't agree more!
As we enter Colorado's snowiest months, know that McGuckin's has all you need to beat the cold! We've still got plenty of ice melt, snow blowers, and ice scrapers. Our weather can be unpredictable this time of the year, so please make sure you're prepared for whatever Mother Nature throws at us!
I want to introduce you, via our short introductory video below, to Craig Shotwell, our small engine mechanic based at our warehouse. He's a true expert at his craft and offers great advice on two- and four-stroke machines.
Want to learn more about wild birds? Chat with our bird experts at our Wild Bird Bash on Saturday, February 9th, from 11am-1pm. Birds not your thing? We're hosting a Game Night on Wednesday, February 27 from 4:30-6:30.

Activities: Make Your Own nesting box (first 50 people), bird seed valentines, and macrame feathers. First come, first serve, while supplies last.

Highlights from our Seed Swap Saturday Event
Thank you to everyone who stopped by our Seed Swap! Seed Swaps are for gardeners who have extra seeds from previous seasons. Gardeners exchange seeds to add some variety to their gardens. There’s always a wealth of knowledge at these events, and it’s always great to learn something new! Click on the image below to view photos from the event.
