Merchant of the Month: Inglewood Florist

February 28th, 2021

Local businesses are at the heart of Ramsay and Inglewood, and here’s yet another one worth highlighting! Inglewood Florist is a one-of-a kind shop offering a variety of floral related treasures to fill your heart and feast your eyes upon.  Remember to bring in your 2020-2021 Ramsay Community Association embership card to enjoy 10% off all walk-in and phone-in orders.

How long have you been in the neighbourhood? Our flower shop has been in Inglewood for nine years!  We are looking forward to celebrating 10 years in Inglewood in November 2021.

What do you like about being a merchant here?  What we truly enjoy about being a merchant within Inglewood is the sense of community we feel here, and the friendships that we have developed with our customers.  When the sun is shining, we can always count on lots of people wandering the streets, taking advantage of the diverse shops and local vendors.  We would also like to mention the musical perks! Some days we need to simply open our doors and music floods our shop!  We are fortunate to have the Blues Can across the way, and the Pedal Pub frequently driving by.  The holiday tunes from Santa on the Pedal Pub were particularly enjoyed this holiday season!  

What makes your business unique?  We are constantly trying to find new and fun ways to be creative, support local organizations, and grow friendships.  Last season we featured locally foraged greenery out of The Cochrane Ecological Institute, helping to support the rehabilitation of injured and orphaned wildlife.  We also have seven resident vendors supplying giftware, from handcrafted birdhouses and hand knit teddy bears, to creatively designed greeting cards, wood wick candles, custom designed jewelry,  and much, much more.  And did you know that we offer monthly floral subscriptions?  Local residents have been known to take advantage of our free delivery offer and vase substitution program.  Just another way that we like to create community and build friendship in Inglewood.

What do you want customers to know about you and your business?  We would like customers to know that our boutique shop is built on a foundation of love for great customer service, an appreciation for natural beauty and maintaining a high standard of quality in our flowers and products.
