The Edmond Economic Development Authority (EEDA) recently featured A Flower Place in the June 2018 issue of EEDA’s newsletter, The Arrow. The Arrow is a monthly newsletter emailed to approximately 2,000 subscribers. Featured businesses also receive a commemorative arrow to recognize their participation.

“The featured business portion of The Arrow was created as an outlet for the EEDA to further support and promote the Edmond business community,” said Janet Yowell, EEDA executive director. “A Flower Place has been a part of the Edmond business community for 18 years and we were so pleased to feature the store in The Arrow.”

A Flower Place is a full-service floral shop and boutique, offering custom floral designs for every occasion, women’s fashions and gifts. Owners and sisters Jan Polhemus and Celia Collins are both certified as Master Florists.

“My sister and I have lived in Edmond since elementary school so we have always known what a great place it is to live and work,” said Polhemus. “Working with the EEDA to share our story in The Arrow was an excellent experience.”
