A New Scent In Town

Karen Lethbridge opens new Wetaskiwin store, Cherry Grove Florist

Karen Lethbridge opens Cherry Grove Florists in Wetaskiwin

A pleasing aroma has taken up residence down the sidewalk to compete with the amazing scent of cooking food coming from Huckleberry’s restaurant in Wetaskiwin. Karen Lethbridge is excited to open the doors to one of Wetaskiwin’s newest shops, Cherry Grove Florist.

Karen and her husband Bill purchased the old Cherry Grove Schoolhouse, close to New Sweden, and spent five of the last ten years painstakingly renovating it. Appreciative of heritage and history, Karen has incorporated elements of the old school house into the business, from an original chalkboard alphabet to pictures of the old school house to utilizing it in the name of the business.

Karen, formally employed in the emergency medicine field, found herself without a job due to cutbacks and so she took a job in a flower shop. Falling in love with it, she decided she wanted the opportunity to put her own spin on things, and began the process of setting up shop with the support and help of her family.

When asked what she saw as goals for her store, Karen replied that they are going to strive to provide excellent customer service and fresh product. She stated that she invites input and feedback to be able to establish a service that meets the needs of her customers. They are a full service shop with online ordering capability at cherrygroveflorist.com.

On May 1st, 2015 the doors were opened to the public and a ribbon cutting service was held on May 14th with friends, family and guests including Deputy Mayor MacQuarrie along with Councillors Gandam, Horvey and Neilson.
