Zacharys purchase flower shop
Matt and Stacie Zachary are the new owners of Petals 'N' Poseys flower shop in Madras.
Previously, Stacie ran an antique business in Culver, where her husband farms. She will carry a few antique pieces in the shop, and continue to organize local estate sales for people.
They decided to purchase the flower shop, Matt explained, because "We wanted to be in business for ourselves. We've been in the area all our lives and wanted to have a business in this community."
Stacie had helped at Petals 'N' Poseys during holidays for previous owners Melinda and Dean Boyle, and was fascinated by the business.
"I attended the Floral Design Institute in Portland, finished Friday evening, Jan. 31, drove home and opened the business Monday, Feb. 3," Stacie said.
The Zacharys will keep the same crew of employees and the shop will still have an espresso bar inside. Tuxedo rentals for proms and weddings will be available, as well as fine gift items.
A broad variety of flowers and hanging baskets will be available from Highland Nursery, recently opened by Stacie's parents Lou and Sharon Dobbins.
Petals 'N' Poseys is planning an open house for Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17. Drop in for goodies and specials on Italian sodas. The shop is located at 546 SW Fourth Street in Madras. The business phone is 475-6266.
