Everyone knows you can go to Shop Easy and get what you need for groceries, and even some gifts. If you can?t find what you need, then you ask Darryl and he brings it in. But you may not have known that Darryl also has a Floral Department. When he hired Karen she came with twelve years of designing experience. She had been designing flowers in Prince George, Penticton and Summerland. Tumbler might not be as warm as Summerland, but Karen says they love living in Tumbler Ridge. It is so beautiful, and the fishing is very good.
Karen moved to Tumbler December 2007, when her husband Bill came to work at Peace River Coal. One day she was in at Trends looking to see if there were any jobs she thought she might like. They had been in Town for a year and she thought maybe it was time for her to go to work part time. She was directed to Shop Easy and has been the Floral Designer there since February 9 of this year.
There is a full Floral Service at Shop Easy. They can do weddings, corsages, baby arrangement, special occasions, ie valentines Day, Mother?s Day, Christmas, etc. When you need something special like corsages and weddings, you need to order ahead.
A large supply of glass vases and baskets are for sale, plus floral supplies for those who like to do their own arrangements at home. You can also get dried fillers. If it is not out on the shelves, just ask for Karen, and she will help you get what you need.
Karen also works part time in the Produce Dept. so she could set you up with some fruit and a bouquet for that special someone.
Easter Lilies will be arriving April 8, 2009 for Easter. Don?t miss out on these beautiful plants, they only come in once a year. Darryl said there will also be some houseplants coming in soon.
Don?t forget when you are in the store to go and look in the Flower Cooler and see the nice arrangements Karen has made up. Remember if you need something special just pre order and she will have it ready for you.
Shop Easy has been a Chamber Member for a long time, and we are very happy that they now have a full Flower Shop. We wish them the best with this Department, and thank them for their long time support of the Chamber of Commerce.
For flowers call Karen and place your order, or stop at Shop Easy and pick an arrangement from the Cooler, they also have nice bouquets of all sizes to choose from.
