Brenda?s Bloomers closes original Marion shop


Once again, Brenda?s Bloomers and Gifts has only one location instead of two?owner Brenda McGinness has closed her shop in Marion to focus on the newer Hillsboro shop she just opened in August.

?Both shops were pretty busy, and I just didn?t have enough help to keep me going,? said McGinness, who opened the original Brenda?s Bloomers two summers ago on Marion?s Main Street after running Marion?s Kraft Korner for 14 years and for several years, its Flower Shoppe.

?The reason I chose Hillsboro is because it?s good market with a lot of different opportunities, and there?s a lot of chance for growth here,? she added.

Hours for the full-service flower and gift shop are expanding, starting this week, to add 9 a.m. to noon Saturday to their hours of 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

She can be reached during business hours at 947-2800 and for emergency service on evenings and weekends at 620-382-2975.
