flowersLooking for flowers downtown? There's a new arrangement, thanks to a shakeup among locally based florists. Enflora Flowers for Business, part of McNamara, plans to open in Chase Tower in early February. And Berkshire Florist is moving from 7 E. Market St. to City Market and plans to open in mid-December. Enflora will take 2,500 square feet that previously housed Wall Street Deli, said Toomie Farris, McNamara's president and CEO. "We really missed our downtown operation," he said. Many of downtown's skyscrapers have lost floral tenants in recent years: George Thomas Florist and Andrews Florist vacated shops in One America Tower and Capital Center. Andrews now has a shop at 705 E. Market St.

  • You can also pick up some flowers for your sweetie at the City Market. There's a booth there selling them by the single stem.
  • George Thomas left because their lease was not renewed. The Tower wanted a Starbucks and got one.
  • Fred Said it Right...

    The City Market has a wonderful florist selling fresh flowers by the stem. I'm not sure the proprietor, but the thing has the feel of something/someone local... she knows her stuff and answers questions.
  • Moonies?
  • Are there still Moonies?
  • Yes believe it or not, they own Sakura, and Sakura Mart.
    Plus about a thousand other restaurants, and businesses nationwide.
