Bush Flower Shop recognized by FTD

Now in its 92nd year of business, Bush Flower Shop on Pine Grove has been recognized by its peers as one of the top 500 FTD florists in the international company's circle of florists that wire worldwide.

Larry Anderson, manager of Bush's since 2000, was pleased to learn that ranking in the top 500 puts the shop in a very elite group, indeed. The honor is bestowed on a mere 1.25 percent of all FTD florists, a group that includes more than 40,000 shops worldwide.

In the letter of commendation that came with a plaque presented to Anderson and the Bush Flower Shop family, FTD President Rob Apatoff commented, "For more than 100 years, FTD has stood for quality, creativity and worldwide floral delivery. We recognize that our success is largely based on florists like Bush's Flower Shop Inc., who continue to be the lifeblood of FTD."

Anderson joined the family business in 2000 and has managed the shop ever since. He is the son-in-law of Bebe Bush Holeman, who is the daughter of the founder of Bush Flower Shop.

Bush Flower Shop is located at 111 W. Pine Grove Ave. The phone number is 279-7110.
