Conroy's Flowers to Throw Customer Party Thursday

The franchise is celebrating its partnership with 1-800-FLOWERS with giveaways, refreshments and activities for kids.

If you're looking for a time to stop and smell the flowers, Thursday at noon would be a good choice.

That's when the Mission Viejo Chamber of Commerce will hold its ribbon-cutting for Conroy's Flowers near the Avery/Marguerite intersection.

It may seem odd for a business that's been open in the same location for 27 years to hold a ribbon cutting. Owner Dhiru Kapadia explains the ceremony will commemorate changes coming to the store because of its relationship to 1-800-FLOWERS, which bought Conroy's in 1996.

He said Thursday marks a new approach for the Mission Viejo business, which has a mom-and-pop approach backed by a billion-dollar business, Kapadia said.

The owner said selling flowers for over two and a half decades has been both tough and fun.

"To make a decent amount of money out of perishable products in Southern California, it’s a challenge," he said. "But we’ve kept up with things and we have met the challenge. And it’s a lot of fun. We’re still growing after all these years.”

He hopes lots of people will come to the ribbon-cutting Thursday at noon: 

"I’ve ordered a lot of food. We need people to come and see what we have here.”

I have had the pleasure of working for employers who truly care about the needs of every customer. No wonder they are a leader in the Industry for decades and at home to a great City, Mission Viejo! Cynthia Cantrelle-Westman
