Mike and Linda Guffey purchased the downtown building which houses several businesses, including Foister's Flowers. What wasn't anticipated was their purchase of Foister's Flowers itself. "I didn't want to lose the rent, and these people really didn't want to lose their jobs. This place needed to stay open." Thus, Granny's Bloomers was born.
Mike is an engaging man full of ideas and care for his community. He has lots of plans for upgrades to draw people into the shop but he started with a very pragmatic repair: A two way swinging entrance door. For years, the entrance of Foister's Flowers has been a little confusing, even to it's regulars. It's new door and fresh take on marketing, including kid's coloring pages of Granny in the newspaper, are signaling a new beginning for an old community favorite. "If we can make this business work, we can do more, but we have to get our name out there. Granny has the answer for your needs!"
Supporting locally owned businesses helps lift up and encourage our community! Remember Granny's Bloomers this coming Valentine's Day.
