In 1993 a young lady, who had successfully managed the offices of several businesses for unappreciative owners, decided enough was enough. She decided that it was time to build her own business. So she called a family meeting, convinced a skeptic husband, mortgaged their home and bought a florist. This endeavor began with many hick-ups. Owning a florist is very hard work and as a new owner, many lessons had to be learned. This young lady was smart, a quick learner and fearless. She put in endless hours at the business, going in early and working late into the evening and through all this took care of her family. She now has a beautiful store with wonderful customers and a great staff. Her efforts culminated in being recognized and awarded Retailer of the Year for 2015.
Well done Charlene Wesseler, owner of Fairfield Flowers.
