Es­tab­lished florist moves to Tyther­ing­ton

Macclesfield Express - - WILDLIFE -

TYTHER­ING­TON is about to get more flo­ral with the ad­di­tion of a flower shop to its busi­ness park.

The Mus­tard Seed Florist, which has been in busi­ness for al­most 40 years, has moved premises to Tyther­ing­ton Busi­ness Park so more cus­tomers can ac­cess the shop.

Busi­ness owner, Kate Holt, who has lived in Tyther­ing­ton for 16 years and spot­ted the po­ten­tial of the shop unit, said: “We have been a land­mark on the round­about at Bro­ken Cross since 1977 but needed to im­prove ac­cess and park­ing for our cus­tomers which had be­come in­creas­ingly dif­fi­cult.”

She added: “We have had cards and mes­sages from our loyal cus­tomers who have been vis­it­ing us in Tyther­ing­ton al­ready.

“With an es­tab­lished busi­ness clien­tele on the busi­ness park and new homes be­ing built in the im­me­di­ate area, we are plan­ning to ex­pand our cus­tomer base and in­tro­duce our­selves to all our new neigh­bours.

“We are sorry to leave Bro­ken Cross af­ter such a long time but I’m con­fi­dent that our cus­tomers will love the new premises.”

Kate, who has run the busi­ness for the last 12 years, has had some un­usual flo­ral re­quests in her time.

She said: “I once made a 2ft long dou­ble decker bus from red and white chrysan­the­mums as a trib­ute for a man’s dad who had been a bus driver in Stoke all his life.

“I made it by my­self and it took me hours and hours but the cus­tomer was very pleased with it.”

She added: “There is no chance to get bored in this job as ev­ery day is dif­fer­ent.

“It’s a very cre­ative job too which is some­thing we of­ten take for granted.”

The un­flap­pable owner has even made up bri­dal bou­quets on the spot for peo­ple who found them­selves with­out one for one rea­son or an­other.

She said: “Peo­ple of­ten wait un­til the last minute for their flow­ers but we got the bou­quets made up while they waited.”

The new shop is based at Lau­rel House on the busi­ness park, next door to Sub­way, and has kept the same tele­phone num­ber.

Kate said: “It feels like a new lease of life now we’ve moved, as if we’re still on hol­i­day.”
