Urbandale: Where business is blooming and helping one another is the way the neighborhood grows - south west michiganTuesday, April 16, 2019
The funeral home owned by Bachman’s father relocated to Urbandale from downtown Battle Creek in 1988 after the city wanted to build the Cereal City Museum on the corner of West Michigan Avenue and Carlisle Street. That gave Bachman and his family the opportunity to relocate to a 375-acre space in Urbandale that has proven to be the right place for them and their business.“It’s a peaceful neighborhood in a residential area and we had green grass and birds and rabbits,” Bachman says. “It felt like you were in an area where if people looked outside it could distract them which is important because they are here under difficult circumstances.”That trust has gone beyond customers to other Urbandale business owners who Bachman has formed deep connections and friendships with over the years. This has led to collaborations designed to both benefit the neighborhood’s profile and elevate it.Churches, restaurants, and businesses, including Plumeria, have banded together on efforts like a sweater drive organized by Bachman, the Fall Festival, and an annual Pancake Supper. Longtime Urbandale resident Patricia Graw, who is a self-described cheerleader and one-woman Welcome Wagon, says there was a great turnout this year for the Fall Festival that included a number of people from outside of Urbandale. A fourth-generation Urbandale resident, Graw says the neighborhood is fortunate to have established businesses because they serve as examples of what is possible for newer entrepreneurs like Hodge.“It makes me feel very excited and hopeful because Urbandale has lost its share of businesses over the years, but as soon as I saw that Elisha had opened her business I went in and told her about our Neighborhood Planning Council and welcomed her,” Graw says. “We have empty buildings, but there’s a lot of talk about new businesses coming in. We’re never going to be like Lakeview, but I think we’ll get it back.”Bachman, who is a member of Urbandale’s Neighborhood Planning Council, says he thinks a lot of bus... http://www.secondwavemedia.com/southwest-michigan/features/Urbandale-Where-business-is-blooming-and-helping-one-another-is-the-way-neighborhood-grows1213.aspx

Small Business Spotlight: E. Stephen Hein - www.smileypete.comSunday, February 28, 2021
Pemberton’s to open his own shop.
Today, Hein’s floral shop has turned into a true family affair, with his granddaughter, Kelsey Hein Smith, having worked alongside him since graduating from Eastern Kentucky University in 2017. A floral designer and the store’s social media manager, Smith calls her grandfather PoPo – except during business hours.
“It’s weird to call him Steve,” she admitted.
Thoughtful, artistic expression has always been appreciated in the floral business, and remains a staple of Hein’s business model. While centerpieces and corsages are less common than they were at the start of his business, sending flowers across town – or even across the country – remains a popular action, and Hein can help with both. Some of his loyal clients utilize his services not only for local flower delivery but also to coordinate out-of-state arrangements for funerals or special occasions.
“We know what to say to the other florist, the dos and don’ts of what to use and what not to use,” Hein said, explaining that his clients appreciate his specific aesthetic. His penchant for communicating the specifics of that aesthetic when “calling out” orders to other florists hasn’t gone unnoticed, as the shop has often been lauded for orders that Hein helps coordinate across the country.
Former and fellow florists have also expressed their gratitude to Hein over the years.
“They have told me that when I set up shop in Lexington in 1987, I raised the bar for what florists do to make a show with their flower arrangements,” he said. “I thought that was a very nice compliment.”
E. Stephen Hein Florist is located at 380 E. Second St. More info is available at www.estephenheinflorist.com.
Calif. flower shop with no connection to Capitol riot flooded with threats, negative reviews - SFGateSunday, January 17, 2021
Alberti’s business appeared to have been removed from the platform. However, Cudd’s business also has a 4.6 rating.) Two other florists bearing the same name in Kentucky and Scotland were burdened with similar harassment. Alberti said all of them have given up on deleting the comments, and are instead attempting to respond to each one in order to set the record straight. “I offered to send some people maps of the United States,” joked Alberti. “Most people apologize and then they reverse, but some are steadfast. My thing is, I understand the need to vent and get rid of that hostility, but just spend an extra five seconds of time to see that we’re not in Texas. The very platforms that these people are using to type these rants and tirades … it would take them less time to find out we’re not that business than it would take for them to write the post.” He’s concerned about what the future holds for his business, which has been around since 1973 and spans four generations. “We’re just trying to survive,” said Alberti. “Being a florist is hard enough. We don’t have a high profit margin. We do it because we love it and love flowers. To already be suffering through COVID and add this on top of it, it’s stressful.” source srcset="https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20494742/3/700x0.jpg 1x, https://s.hdnux.com/photos/01/16/13/46/20... https://www.sfgate.com/news/article/Beckys-Flowers-Roseville-mistaken-Capitol-rioter-15871654.php

KOSA. Death threats have been left for Cudd at her flower shop, she told KOSA. Other businesses with similar names to "Becky's Flowers" across the country have also been targeted.

Amber Sergent told the Kentucky television station her family has been swamped with angry calls from people who are confusing them with Cudd's business.
