PIERSON'S FLOWER SHOP & GREENHOUSES 90-YEAR ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
Pierson’s Flower Shop & Greenhouses is turning 90-years old this month and they are inviting the public to celebrate with them.
On November 24th from 8 am to 5 pm and November 25th from 10 am to 4 pm, guests are welcome to stop by for some holiday cookies and coffee at both locations: 1800 Ellis Blvd NW and 1961 Blairs Ferry Rd NE Cedar Rapids. There will be raffle drawings, festive decorations, and sales on ornaments, wreaths, fresh evergreens, poinsettias and more.
Founded by Roland and Ruth Pierson in 1928, the Ellis Blvd. location opened in what used to be the outskirts of town. In 1954, Robert and Nancy Pierson joined the business and later, in the 1970's, were accompanied by their sons, Rollie and Allan.
Allan currently runs the original location. The 3,000 square foot showroom and 12,000 square foot greenhouse had been renovated many times over the years. Most recently, the family-run shop had a complete overhaul due to 8 feet of floodwaters from the Cedar River in 2008.
"The business has had its ups and downs over the years, " said Rollie, "but we enjoy growing with the community." Rollie and his wife, Susan, run the newer 4000 square foot location on Blairs Ferry Rd. "We are privileged to share important moments with our customers: weddings, funerals, birthdays, " Susan said, "with such a long history here, people know they can count on us to be here when they need us."
Pierson family members know the plant and flower business better than anyone in the area. They have dedicated their lives to the success of the business and take tremendous pride in their work and superior customer service.
Pierson’s Flower Shop & Greenhouses won a BRAVO Award from the Cedar Rapids Metro Alliance in 2017. They were recognized for having a “longstanding tradition in the community.” The business is a mainstay for Cedar Rapids and surrounding areas.
