Help Beach View Flowers and Gifts celebrate their 10th
If you’re planning on heading out to Beach View Flowers and Gifts to find a special item, give yourself a little extra time to stop and smell the roses.
The gift and flower shop on the Main Highway in Clarke’s Beach is stuffed with delightful items for every occasion from paintings to purses, from Webkinz to wallets -if you take the time to browse you never know what you might find.
Owner Lucille Morrissey-Winter and assistant Cheryl Mercer won’t just make you feel welcome --their friendly, back and forth banter, helpful suggestions and easy-going attitude will have you so relaxed, you won’t want to leave.
This week Beach View Flowers and Gifts celebrates its 10th anniversary.
“ We’re having a Webkinz extravaganza!” the enthusiastic owner says. “ With a $ 15 purchase of anything in the store you get a free Webkinz. There’ll be Webkinz giveaways including trading cards and bookmarks, a colouring contest and much more,” Lucille explains.
There’s no shortage of purchases to choose from at Beach View, with gift items like Newfoundland books, earrings, angels, locally made mummers, Dennis Minty photos, paintings, business card holders, green plants, flowers and flower arrangements. There is even a coffee table with a nautical theme.
Since it’s opening in 1999, Beach View has already undergone one expansion. Now the store is seeing another growth spurt.
“ In June we’ll be extending the building. So it will be more spacious – which will mean even more room for a display area,” says Lucille.
Beach View also stocks slate house signs from a locally owned company in neighbouring South River.
Lucille and Cheryl can mix and match items that will be guaranteed to make the most unique gifts.
Lucille began her career in floral design in 1987 after attaining her certificate from the Agricultural College in Nova Scotia. She worked in the floral industry for a number of years and then decided to start her own business.
In April 1999, she opened Beach View Flowers and Gifts in Clarke’s Beach.
The plant enthusiast has achieved a number of certificates in floral design over the years and is a member of TeleFlora Canada, which enables her to send flowers worldwide.
Lucille resides with her husband Jerome and their two sons William and Nicholas in Clarke’s Beach.
With Mother’s Day and graduation just around the corner, Beach View Flowers and Gifts is the place to find that something special for that special someone.
Lucille would like to sincerely thank her many loyal customers and extends a warm welcome to everyone.
So take time out… stop and smell the roses… and relax with Lucille and Cheryl. They’ll give you a free carnation, a chance to win a beautiful gift basket and no doubt, you’ll leave with a smile on your face.
