What gets you to a certain nursery?

I am thinking about opening a retail location and I
would like to pick everyones brain. 
Why do you go to certain reatilaers to do your "daily"
purchasing? What extra touches do they give you? 
I am looking for input on locations as well. I am very
open to possibilities but there have been many
suggestions/disagreesments. Some suggestions are -
Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Culver City, Venice (Abbot
Kinney), and Pacific Palisades.
My aim is to open a retail store with a garden/nursery
area, and florist with gourmet/gift items. 
I know a lot of the Westside is saturated. I want a
young, rich area with clients who would be more apt to
buy things for art rather than the quick fix/instant
gratification color sale. I am very traditional in
design but forward thinking too and I want to push the
limit of possibilities with the art in the garden as I
have shown in my articles in "The Bulb Garden". 
So, what does everyone think? I welcome everyones
feedback. You can email me privately if you wish.
