Owner operator of Florist retail gift shop. Founded in 1954 I listed to sell this business and commercial property in 1999 when I decided to buy it myself. At time of purchase they had annual sales of $580,000. I grew the business in 3 years to $790,000. The economy and the growing market of online purchasing for flowers effected the business. I decided to sell due to the lack of quality time with family. Business only was sold in October 2008.
