Topton, PA-When this flower shop first opened, the world was very different, but like the fate of flowers, this local staple is wilting.
“It’s time for this virus and supply and demand issues,” said Wilda Trexler, co-owner of the Trexler Florist in Topton and the last of the three generations.
After 90 years, a small downtown store will close at the end of October. It was opened in 1930 by Trexler’s grandparents.
“When it comes to the Great Depression, you see, they have a lot [flowers] Here it made a difference, “said Trexler.
At that time, many churches and funeral halls gave the stores their business. Flowers have also brightened countless weddings and weddings.
Trexler says her father always believed in a personal touch.
“He just felt the customer was important and wanted to do everything to please the customer,” Trexler said.
She calls retirement bittersweet, but Trexler wants people to remember how they made their customers feel.
“We hope all people think we have done our best for them,” she said. “Hopefully the flowers made their day.”
Flower life is a moment, but the family has blossomed their livelihood.
