Friendly Flowers Florist and Gifts opens in Milton - CapeGazette.comTuesday, November 19, 2019
Located on Route 1 next to Brumbley’s Family RV Park outside Milton, this is the second Friendly Flowers Florist in Sussex County. The original location is in Millsboro. Fredo started the business online in 2015 before opening his first brick-and-mortar store in 2016. He also operates a warehouse in Rehoboth Beach.Fredo said he opened in Milton because he is looking to expand the company’s footprint in Sussex County, with the ultimate goal of covering the entire county. Friendly Flowers Florist delivers all over Sussex and into Kent County as far north as Dover. “Hopefully we’ll take the whole state in a few years,” Fredo said.He said he became a florist 25 years ago, almost by accident.“I was bored. My grandparents had a garden spot and I would walk away because they would watch the garden grow, which is kind of boring. But then I walked into a flower shop and that’s kind of where things started,” Fredo said.Friendly Flowers Florist sells giftware, floral design and custom arrangements. “We order our stuff directly from growers as opposed to wholesalers. We get a fresher product that way,” Fredo said.That product includes tropicals, flowers from South America and orchids from Thailand. Customers can come in the stores, order online or order by phone. Fredo said in the spring, greenhouses will be erected at the store. The store will also carry consignments, Christmas trees and wreaths, and jewelry and signs. The Milton store is open Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Flowers can be ordered from the Milton store onlin... https://www.capegazette.com/article/friendly-flowers-florist-and-gifts-opens-milton/191229

After the shooting, a boy gave flowers to workers at King Soopers stores near the attack - The Washington PostWednesday, March 31, 2021
He purchased dozens of carnations in a variety of bright colors and paid for them with money he earned from dog-walking. When JJ told the florist his plan to give a flower to every store employee, she offered him a generous discount.That’s when he turned to his mother and excitedly said, “kindness is spreading!” Witmer recalled.They did several laps around the supermarket and handed out one flower to every employee. With each flower, JJ shared an earnest message.“We just wanted to let you know you’re appreciated. Thank you for being here today. It must be hard,” he said to each employee.“At first, I was a little bit timid because I wasn’t sure how they would react,” JJ said.But then he saw that employees instantly responded with overwhelming gratitude.“They were really thankful. Lots of them were crying and giving me first bumps and air hugs,” JJ said. “It made me feel so good. I was filled with joy and happiness.”While chatting with the store employees, “they said they were kind of scared to go do their job,” JJ added. “I think we made the right decision because it made a lot of people feel good.”Although Witmer followed closely behind her son, “I just stood in the background and let him do his thing,” she said. “This was his idea, and I was just there to support him.”After about 45 minutes in the store, they moved on to another King Soopers location in Reunion, a community in Commerce City, which is where the Witmer family usually gets their groceries.“We know most of the employees there,” JJ said.He purchased three dozen red roses that the store’s florist also offered at a heavily discounted price. Again, he circled the supermarket, handing out flowers to every employee in sight.“He even waited for a staff meeting to end so he wouldn’t miss anybody,” Witmer said.Marsha Esparza-Barnabe, 58, who works in the pharmacy at the Commerce City King Soopers, was surprised when JJ approached her with a rose.The atmosphere in the store was “very somber,” she said. “Everybody was talking about [the shooting], and it was just very sad. It could have been our store.”Then JJ appeared, rose in hand.The small gesture of kindness was so overwhelming, Esparza-Barnabe said, that “I actually turned and walked to the back and cried.”Not far away, in the baking aisle of the supermarket, Zerelda Todd — a King Soopers employee of 46 years — was on her knees, stocking the shelves with tubes of frosting.“All of a sudden, I heard this quiet voice go ‘Ma’am,' ” Todd, 64, said. ... https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2021/03/25/king-soopers-shooting-flowers-colorado/
