Cindy Samuelson and her daughter Jamie Olson have plugged away at Langdon Floral for seven years and last February, an unfortunate event caused Samuelson to re-think the business.
“We came to work one day and I looked up and my roof had fallen in,” Samuelson recalled. “I was like, oh no, big problem. Since then, we’ve decided to keep the floral shop going because this community is in need of a floral shop.
“We have completely remodeled the inside, put on a new roof and brought in new ideas so the community would come in and check out our new store and all of our new gifts.”
Langdon Floral has diversified and among the services now available are weddings, bridal registry, funerals, home decorating and silks. Not to mention a full line for children.
After touring the store, a Christmas wonderland could be the first thing that comes to mind.
“It has been a big change,” Olson said. “My favorite part is the flower shop and I cannot imagine not doing that anymore.
“I enjoy every single day and someday, I’ll miss it when I’m gone.
“I think the environment should be friendly and welcoming and not such a cold place to walk into. We appreciate everyone that comes in here and we appreciate the city of Langdon and the community and people here.”
In fact, in November, Langdon Floral will have a Customer Appreciation Grand Re-Opening heading into the holiday season.
“Christmas is my favorite time of the year,” said Samuelson.
“I have seven grandchildren and they enjoy every minute of it.
“Christmas in here is not only about adults but about kids too.”
Samuelson and Olson are ready for the challenges of this holiday season and the coming new year.
“People are great in this community,” Samuelson explained. “Everyone supports the flower shop and hopefully, it will continue to get better and better.
“We try to serve our customers to their needs and their budgets. I strive to go above and beyond for our customers and I will continue to do that.
“We hope everyone will not hesitate to come in and check us out.
“We are here to serve you and meet your every need.”
