Flowers of Fortune relocates

Reflecting on how the open house was going ... Flowers of Fortune opened at its new location and many people stopped in. Shown, in mirror from left, is Janet Schofield, Jennie Morrison, and owner Anita Schofield.

Anita Schofield has moved her Flowers of Fortune business into what used to be the old Dakota Bar at 102 N. Center Avenue next to the Gem Theater.

“I like this place. It’s fitting for a flower shop – homey and cozy,” said Schofield from in front of the hand-polished antique bar and full-length mirror.

For the open house on Wednesday, November 16, coffee and cider were served. Future offerings will include fountain sodas. “We’ve had a great turn-out,” said Schofield as she welcomed the constant flow of visitors. Many people looked at the beautiful displays, enjoyed the treats, signed up for the door prizes, and made themselves at home at the coffee-nook tables.

The store specializes in flowers, silk arrangements, balloons, candles, and cards and gifts for all occasions. Long distance Teleflora services are available and Schofield will deliver in Philip, Midland, Kadoka and the surrounding area.

Helping with the move, the setting up, and the open house were Jennie Morrison, Anita’s sister, and Janet Schofield, Anita’s mother-in-law. The business was originally begun as a partnership with Anita’s mother, Pam Fortune; thus the business name. “This is a family-based store, and it is where we make our living,” said Anita. The business has been in operation since the fall of 1999.
