Trenton, ON: Avondale Flowers are expanding their business in the Quinte Region and are opening up a new store in Trenton. They have been in the flower business since 1985 and have accumulated a skill set that will allow them to create a large variety of styles and designs to meet the needs of customer's individual styles. “We are opening a store in Trenton as we found that many of our customers came from Trenton to buy flowers and plants from our store in Belleville,” says store owner Bob Anderson. “We also make many deliveries in Trenton and this prompted us realize that there was a need for our style of store in the Trenton area.”
Greg White will be managing the store in Trenton and has been with Avondale Flowers for the past 10 years. He is an extremely talented florist and together with his fiancée they will be bringing all their great customer care to Quinte West. “The main difference in buying from Avondale Flowers is the quality and price of the product,” says store manager Greg White. “Avondale Flowers buy directly from the growers at the Ontario Flower Growers Auction in Toronto on a regular basis and this ensure a much fresher product. We also have a standing order with first class importers who purchase flowers from around the world. This allow us the opportunity to sell exotic flowers at a reasonable price, as an example, our long stem Ecuadorian roses usually sell for $30.00 a doz.”
Along with the access to great suppliers Avondale Flowers also have their own greenhouses in Belleville which allows them to bring fresh plants to the store on a daily basis. They currently have one greenhouse full of beautiful poinsettia and locally grow plants depending on the season. They have many customers who own offices and companies in the area and they look forward to expanding their commercial client list to include more of the Quinte West region.
Avondale Flowers also offer a much more extensive line of gifts, vases, silks, etc. than most flower shops and invite you to stop by the new store and check it out. They are located at 162 Dundas Street East (right across from Mike the Molar) and right beside Off the Hook women's accessories store. Off The Hook has graciously offered to share their parking lot with Avondale Flowers so there is lots of free parking for customers. We will be open from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday to Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. of Saturday.
The Grand Opening of the store will be on Thursday, November 27 and everyone is invited to visit and see their great in store specials. Also, they will be giving away a free rose to all who visit that day. They are looking forward to working with residents on their weddings, anniversary, funeral and special occasion’s needs.
