An iconic Northland staple is for sale
When current owner Julie Stable and her late husband bought the iconic "The Rose Man" flower shop, she says she didn’t really have a vision in mind. Throughout the years, that vision has developed.
"Looking to figure out how I am going to do this and make this work, but it was so natural. The evolution of it just built itself, and customer base and everyone that comes in is really happy with what they walk out with."
Every day is a different day with its only experiences. For Stabe, her days are and have been filled with so much love and happiness.
"Oh, my goodness! There’s been so much fun, compassion, and love and all the years that we’ve been here, and every day is just different; exciting. You have so much experience; you have people that come in with all sorts of stories, and it’s just my job to help them walk out the door feeling good."
If you don’t have an idea of what you are looking for, no worries; Stabe HAS a ROUTINE to help her customers with their decisions.
"First, I ask, what’s your meaning behind the flowers? Then I ask..most people have red, but if they have a meaning, all roses have meanings behind them. So, an orange rose is enthusiasm, a yellow rose means friendship, and a pink rose means happiness. So, I ask them what the meaning behind your gift today of what you want to give someone, and then we just build from there."
When it comes to what is next for The Rose Man flower shop and Stabe," Welp, I’m praying that someone wants to take over and be the next "Rose Man" and carry on the tradition. Because I’m not going to close the doors unless I can find a successor that is going to wanna continue with this historic little pink building on Central Entrance. There’s a legacy that we have to just keep going with."
