Byron gets new floral shop

BYRON — When Jessica Lemickson saw a business location for lease kitty-corner across U.S. Highway 14 from the Byron Kwik Trip, she knew it was time to take the next step and start her own floral business, called Med City Floral Design.

She has worked for about 16 years in all aspects of the floral industry, from selling for a wholesale grower to working with florist shops all over Minnesota. On the retail side, she also did a lot of planning for weddings, corporate events and funerals. With all that experience behind her, she thought Byron was the ideal location from which to serve the businesses and residents of the region.

At the Byron City Council meeting Tuesday, Lemickson's request for a conditional use permit to expand the display area outside her shop at 11 Second Ave. Southwest was approved.

Her products include fresh cut flowers, indoor houseplants and, at this time of year, an array of bedding plants and outdoor floral baskets. Balloons also are available.

During the holiday season, she plans to offer wreaths, garland and tree toppers, as well as holiday centerpieces and flowers.

As she learns the needs of her clients, she also will be bringing in appropriate gift products.

"I really like it here," she said Thursday morning. "Everyone has been so welcoming."

The shop will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and, seasonally, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Lemickson said she plans to deliver in the region if customers request it.

The phone number for the business is 775-6563.
