COVID-19

 

To our valued customers,

As you may or may not be aware, our provincial government has now outlined a plan to slowly allow small retail shops (such as ours) to re-open to 25% capacity. We are so proud of our fellow Manitobans for taking precautions, staying safe, helping to flatten the curve. We are overjoyed for our many outstanding local small businesses who now have the ability to host some customers in-store. 

After thoughtful reflection and several conversations with our entire team, we have decided to continue to only offer curbside pick-up and delivery at this time, keeping our storefront closed to in-person shopping.

Our number one priority continues to remain the health and safety of our staff, community, and city as a whole. During a typical Valentine’s Day week and the weeks leading up to it, we have the privilege of hosting hundreds (if not thousands) of locals at our beautiful store. While we would absolutely love for this to happen, with our limited number of staff working during this pandemic we feel it is our duty as a responsible employer to continue to maintain our safety-first approach. We look forward to re-visiting the prospect of reopening our storefront as soon as possible when we feel it is safe to do so!

We are so proud to have been able to serve this community for over 40 years, and we remain fully capable and eager to serve our incredible city with any floral and gift needs you may have during this season. 

We are all in this together <3
