I am afraid I have to sell my beloved flower shop located on Yonge Street in Rosedale. In operation for over 15 years. I worked really hard to grow the business and its reputation (5-Star on Yelp and FB).

Truth be told, the books do look very good for the last year. I have turned away weddings and events for the last year. The profits are there for taking, it just needs someone to do so. I need a quick sale, so I am asking a rock-bottom price of $30,000. For less than the cost of starting your own company, you get my shop, and all its contents. (fully stocked with Plants, Flowers, and merchandise!) It's a turn-key operation. I am willing to stay to help with the transition, and my designer would like to stay to help you succeed.

The store needs a new website and social media presence. However, I have a loyal customer base, and I'm the preferred florist for one of the biggest arts organizations in Canada. I really do not want to sell, but my shop deserves more than I can currently give it.

Serious inquiries please: Call Paul at 416-324-9900 on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays
