Oceanside, East Rockaway florist continues to grow neighborhood support - liherald.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Graham opened his shop, at 221 Merrick Road in Oceanside, in January 2018, with the goal of being involved in the community. Last April he launched a second Flowers by Mike shop at 338 Atlantic Ave. in East Rockaway. According to the contest website, Best of Long Island is “a roadmap to the best, top-notch businesses and services throughout both Nassau and Suffolk counties,” including restaurants, shops and family-run businesses. The residents and patrons who rely on the businesses determine the winners by voting on the contest’s website. Mike D’Ambrosio, of Oceanside, said he often shops at Flowers by Mike because it not only offers quality arrangements, but also Graham is community-minded. “He’s one of us, so I can’t say enough about the good things he does,” D’Ambrosio said. “The part that excites me is the fact that as a customer, you can’t get a better florist, but at the end of the day, what the guy gives back to the community is more important.”Graham is a lifelong Oceansider, and attended School No. 3 and Oceanside middle and high schools. He has volunteered in the Oceanside Fire Department for more than 15 years, and is involved in many organizations, including the Oceanside Kiwanis Club and Chamber of Commerce. He lives in Oceanside with his wife, Rachel, and their daughter, Rylie.Graham called it “amazing” to earn the honor, adding that there were 1.6 million votes cast in the contest overall, but he was unsure how many were for his shop. The business has also given back to the communit... https://www.liherald.com/stories/oceanside-east-rockaway-florist-continues-to-grow-neighborhood-support,129886
Can flowers live through a pandemic? | Herald Community Newspapers - liherald.comSunday, January 17, 2021
By Alexandra Whitbeck Flowers only last for so long after being cut. The inventories of some local florists, including those in Baldwin, Freeport and Oceanside, were greatly affected when shops were forced to close in late March because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Roses, lilies and daisies tend to live longer than hyacinths, tulips and lilacs, however, the maximum lifespan of cut flowers is still about a week with maximum care. Since Phase One of New York’s reopening plan began May 27, florists were able to open in a limited manner with hopes of restocking as much as possible. Face masks and a limited capacity were requirements made by New York State that Imperial Florist in Baldwin, Flowers by Mike in Oceanside and Duryea’s Flower Shop in Freeport are all following in order to continue peddling petals. Ann Marie Pierce at Imperial Florist in Baldwin has been operating her shop with only one in-store employee and one delivery driver since late May, accepting curbside and delivery orders. According to Pierce, for “at least six weeks we didn’t work at all.” Imperial Florist has recently opened its shop to customers with ca... https://www.liherald.com/merrick/stories/can-flowers-live-through-a-pandemic,126506
