Flower shop back in business after Sandy

Thursday, February 14, 2013

At "In the Garden", things are finally blooming again. The flower shop is finally back in business after Sandy shut it down. This is a mark that serves as a badge of honor for Nancy Burton. Burton decided to reopen and take on two new partners  Eileen Ricco and Jenna Morris. The shop's reopening is a sign that the community is pulling together by helping each other. The recovery in the Highlands has been slow, and many shops are still closed, so residents are thrilled to see the flower shop open again. On Valentine's Day, the day so many florists count on, Burton is counting on her customers. "I can't wait to see all my customers," Burton says, "I know they'll be back." They will be visiting a remodeled shop where there is a renewed sense of passion. Burton's family's home was also flooded, and she is still working on getting it renovated. Meanwhile, sales on Valentine's Day have been pretty good. She sold 50 dozen roses, almost what she does normally on any other Valentine's Day.
