Timmins Flower Shop Inc.
The Timmins Flower Shop Inc. was first established in Timmins in 1950 by the Guenette family. Rita and Tony Garito purchased the Timmins Flower Shop Inc. after 38 years in business in 1988. Rita and Tony ran the flower shop as an extension of their family life. Two of their six children Christine and Tanya thrived at the flower shop developing their mutual love for flowers and business. When their parents decided to retire both girls rose to the challenge of taking over the family business in the fall of 1997.
Christine and Tanya are proud to own a business with such long standing within the community of Timmins. Their goal is to continue developing the business and expanding in many different directions bringing more extensive products and services.
Since purchasing The Timmins Flower Shop Inc., Tanya, Christine and their team have won many awards locally & nationally that continue to show their dedication, work ethic and family values. They have been awarded FTD’s Top 500 North America for numerous years, and award-winning top 25 with Teleflora, achieving National Account status.
The management and core staff bring with them a combined 125 years of experience within the floral industry. With every passing year they work harder to ensure our community is serviced with top quality products and superior customer service.
In the summer of 2012 they expanded to include a new venture called “Edible Fruit Blooms” which consist of fruit bouquets and strawberries dipped in rich Belgium chocolate. This newest venture provides a fresh and exciting new choice to the community.
