There are some spruces that naturally droop a bit and some are considered weeping or pendulous.

You might try taking a few photos and compare them to some of the other spruces either at the nursery or in plant catalogs. Or, perhaps your local certified nurseryma can help you identify it. Or, the original supplier might be able to help. What a mystery.
