Kimberley’s only full service florist will remain in business as local couple Sue and Paddy Brown have purchased the Wallinger Avenue business Flowers Galore.

Kimberley residents will recognize Paddy and Sue as owners of Advanced Stove and Fireplace and Willie’s Weenies.

The Browns are no strangers to the floral industry having owned a flower shop in Calgary for 22 years prior to moving to Kimberley. They both say it feels great to be back in the flower business.

“The best part is to be around beautiful flowers and let my artistic abilities run wild, while being included in the special moments of peoples’ lives,” Sue says.

They promise great customer service and in fact, two Flowers Galore employees, Terri and MaryAnn have stayed on.

“In the flowers business we deal with people experiencing important times in their lives. Birthdays, anniversaries, congratulations, I love you and even the sad times – illness or tragedy — these are moments when you send flowers to express your love, your support, your thoughts, your prayers, all the emotions that weave together to make a life. It is a wonderful thing to be part of that.”
