A new business opened recently in the Six Stones building on 101 Street, around the corner from Quinn’s Plumbing and Heating. Yorkshire Rose is the product of Julie Puchala, who promises to offer her customers flowers and gifts with attitude by bringing a bit of the Whyte Avenue vibe to Morinville.
“I was visiting my cousin in Yorkshire, England this past summer. He asked me if I knew what a Yorkshire rose was. I just liked the sound of it and thought it was perfect for my new store,” Puchala said. “I’m hoping to fill a void that is needed in town. I’m wanting to promote local shopping again, giving customers something they are going to the city or St. Albert for.”
The store is eclectic in nature, offering a variety of fresh flowers, home decor, and the Gnome’s Cupboard products, custom designed succulents and other fresh plant creations by Wheelbarrow Gardener Val Loseth. The company will also be selling a variety of seasonal pre-packaged teas.
The store will be having their grand opening Mar. 19 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
