Thran's Flowers is a third generation legacy, serving our area with excellence and beauty since 1982.  

 


Grandmother, Mother, and Daughter

 

Lois Thran, Retired

Lois Thran, Mother of Barbara and Grandmother of Katie, started the business in 1982.  Lois had received a small inheritance and decided to open a flower shop. Her plan was to open a unique flower shop, different from your standard bucket shop.  She wasn’t sure how our small town would react to such different and distinctive designs.  With the help of her daughter, Barbara, the business quickly grew into a locals favorite spot for flowers. Eventually Barbara took over the business in 1988.  Lois lives a beautiful life nearby in a small farm community.  We can sometimes persuade her to come into the store to help make garlands, corsages or any simple tasks.  We are truly proud of the business she created and proudly live up to the standards she set.

Refrigeration & Delivery

We are the only flower shop in our community with refrigerated vehicles.  We strive to produce the best quality product and the key to our success is to make sure the flowers are fresh when they arrive to your doorstep.  Our refrigerated vehicles are key for wedding setups that require us to drive an hour or more.  We can arrive to your wedding location hours before the start time to setup knowing we can pull out your flowers moments before you walk down the aisle.  Don’t settle for wilted hydrangea from other vendors!

Delivery fees will be assessed based on the location and size of your event.
