The Flower Mill at 3600 E. 10th St. is moving down the street into the old Rew’s TV & Appliance building later this month.
Owner Stacy Schaap said as the floral shop got busier in its nine years at its current location, design and floor space started shrinking.
“The timing was right to make the move,” Schapp said. “It will double, or possibly even triple, the size of our space.”
The new space at 4005 E. 10th St. will give employees more room to design floral arrangements and an opportunity for Schapp to expand wedding rentals along with sympathy lines.
In addition to floral arrangements, The Flower Mill also has a full-service greenhouse.
But Schaap said The Flower Mill will continue to do what she believes the store does best: meet everyday floral needs.
The move is planned for June 25, will hopes of being up and going by June 29.
“My employees are thrilled,” Schaap said. “We’re all excited about it.”
Her old location next to George Boom Funeral Home is a space in transition, as the funeral home is building a new location and a new retail center is planned along East 10th Street.
“Interest in the 10th and Bahnson area has been really strong the last several months,” said Ryan Tysdal of Van Buskirk Cos., who has The Flower Mill’s 3,600-square-foot building listed for lease. “This is a rare opportunity to lease a freestanding building at a stoplight. It’s a great story to tell that the former tenant outgrew the building due to their overwhelming success.”
That stretch of 10th Street draws more than 25,000 cars daily, he said.
“That is incredible traffic — and retailers love it,” Tysdal said. “The redevelopment of the George Boom property is going to completely change the feel of this corner.”
