Welcome to Kelly’s Flowers located at 63 Gore Street East!

Welcome to 63 Gore Street

Map of Gore Street locationWe’ve been anxiously anticipating this move for what feels like forever, and we’re now excited to welcome you into our new location. Krista has been working hard (understatement of the century) for the last few months to make all of it happen and while we have been sharing updates on the move, we haven’t actually shared the process.

So, buckle in, because here is very much what we call “the point form notes” of everything that had to happen to make this possible. Moving anywhere can be a challenge.

Moving an established business to a brand-new location is a momentous undertaking.

Back in December, Krista purchased the Historic Thomas Wright Building, which was the former (and now again), home of Kelly’s Flowers. From that moment on, Krista hit the ground running.

March marked the beginning of construction at the new location, getting it ready for open. This is the time where we should mention that the equipment required for a florist can’t exactly be ordered regularly; customization and creativity was required.

During the construction phase, Krista worked with a team to design a custom cooler for all our flowers! For those familiar with the movie Step Brothers, “There’s so much room for activities!

Designing the cooler was an undertaking, but the construction and design did not stop there. Upon entering the 63 Gore Street E. location, you’ll notice the immense attention to detail in the new flower counters, floors, lighting, archway (which was not there before and is a whole other story of its own), and every corner of the store.

Once construction was completed and Krista received the green light for occupancy, the move began. Here at Kelly’s, the team is pretty used to changing over an entire store in the span of 12 hours to prepare for the holidays. So we’re almost sure we set a record for fastest business move because our moving deadline was 1 week; just in time for Festival of the Maples!

April 27, 2024 marked the first day of Kelly’s being open at our new location and for those who haven’t seen it yet, we can’t wait to welcome you into our new home. We hope to see you all soon!

The Daffodil Campaign

Shamrocks – Care Tips

Shamrocks are a symbol of the Irish holiday, St. Patrick’s Day. It is said that the three leaves of a Shamrock represent, faith, hope and love. Finding a fourth leaf is considered to be very lucky.

Shamrocks have a shallow root system and prefer a slightly moist, well-drained soil. If their leaves become wilted or droopy, you will need to increase the amount of watering. They tend to perform best if kept “pot-bound” because of their shallow root system. Bright, indirect sunlight will keep your Shamrock blooming all winter.

We will have lots of Shamrocks this month, to help you celebrate the St. Patrick’s holiday.

Kelly’s is Moving

Kelly's is Moving

Have you heard? The secret is out!!

We are moving!!

But don’t worry. We aren’t going far. In fact, we are heading back to 63 Gore Street, our old stomping grounds.

We have been working on this move since 2020, and we couldn’t be happier to share the news with all of you. Kelly’s Flowers has quite the history. The business was founded by Terry & Delta O’Hara at61 Gore Street, in the old Sheriff’s House. The business was then sold to Peggy & Brian Paul.

The Pauls sold Kelly’s to Cathy McCabe in 2002. Then in 2007, Kelly’s moved from 61 Gore Street to 63 Gore Street in the Thomas Wright building. In 2011, Cathy sold the business to Pascale Mapleston. Pascal decided to move Kelly’s to the Code’s Mill building in 2014. That same year, Krista bought Kelly’s Flowers from Pascal. Kelly’s has been in the Code’s Mill building ever since, that is, until this year. Krista & Mike got the opportunity to purchase the Thomas Wright building from Cathy Hay, in 2024. Which will now be the new home of Kelly’s Flowers (again 😉 )We have been asked a few questions about the move, such as, Why? & When? So let’s clear the air a little.WHY are we moving?

Well, thanks to all of our loyal customers, old and new, we have outgrown our space. Krista always dreamed of having a storefront back on Gore, the heart and soul of Perth.

And that brings us to WHEN? We are currently in the process of doing some renovations to accommodate our current needs. This means, a totally new layout, more design space, a bigger cooler, and of course, fresh paint, etc… With that in mind, we are keeping our fingers crossed and aiming to move by Summer 2024.

It’s all a process that takes time. We are sure there are other questions you’d like answered. We promise to answer all your questions and keep you informed along the way. We also have been digging into the history of63 Gore so, join our newsletter to stay up to date, and be sure to follow us on our socials.
