That Reminds Me Of A Story.
Family stories that have helped a local business thrive for four generations. 

Residents of the Treasure Valley have long known Zamzows as the expert garden and pet supply store, but few know its rich history. Founded in 1933, it all started with a train stop gone wrong, when brothers August and Carl Zamzow stowed away on a train going from Minnesota to California. When the train stopped in Meridian, August hopped off to get some lunch for them, but before he could jump back on, the train took off. Stranded in Meridian, August quickly found work and established roots. He soon married Carmalita House, who later became known as the infamous Grandma Z. That Reminds Me of a Story is a collection of stories telling the history of the Zamzow family and Zamzows, Inc. Each story contains a lesson about strong values and good business practices, which are what has allowed the Zamzow family to continue to grow their company through more than three generations.
