The Dust Has Settled - Flowers & Candy MOVED

Were finally finished with our big move to 1104 West Main Street (we are officially "ON" the Square now).  Our new space is amazing and I think we did a great job making it look inviting.

HUGE thanks goes out to Amber, Josh & Doug for coming in on their time off over Memorial Day Weekend to help get everything moved and in place.

I thought everyone might enjoy seeing some pics from the move itself so here you go!

Flowers & Candy on Wheels (The Big Move - June 1, 2010)

After 1 year in our current location at 1015 S. Broadway, in Downtown Carrollton, we have decided to move our location to just around the corner at 1104 W. Main Street!

We are extremely excited about the move and look forward to our new presence ON the square instead of just off the square as we have been.

Here are some photos of the new space.  We worked on it over the weekend and have started painting already!  (Big thanks to Amber who came in on Saturday evening to help us sling paint on the shelving units!)

We are a google favorite place!!!

So many people searched online for Blooms on the Square Florist & Candy Shop in downtown Carrollton that the shop has been named "a favorite place" on Google.

Google Favorite Places Decal

Google reported searchers found Blooms on the Square Florist & Candy Shop 10,449 times between July 1 and Sept. 30 and requested information 621 times.As a google "favorite place," our shop at 1015 S Broadway received a Google window decal with a bar code that anyone can scan with a cell phone camera to read customer reviews.

The list of favorite places was determined based on the popularity of a business' Local Business Center listing, as determined by how many times Google users looked for more information about a business, requested driving directions to get there, and more. Google users "decided" based on their actions and the local businesses were sent the decals. "We were ecstatic about getting the decal. We are part of the less than 1% of the 28 million U.S. businesses that got picked!"

We are thanking customers by offering a free gift to people who scan the bar code and stop in through Jan 4.

In July, we changed locations and expanded to include nostalgic candy and chocolates. Since then the foot traffic has more than doubled and they add new products each week at the request of our customers. When it comes to candy, if they still make it, we will find it and bring it in.

We've always offered same-day delivery on flowers. Now our customers can order candy bouquets and gifts and get the same great delivery service.
