It really is true that giving feels better than receiving…….and so the story goes.
Westmount Florist has always tried to be community minded and give back to charitable organizations as much as we possibly can. We get an average of 10 requests for donations each week and we know that every single request is for a good cause.
Westmount Florist is celebrating a very important milestone we are 50 years old, and we
intend to celebrate. We are planning a series of events for the months ahead—some small and
rather personal and sentimental—others on a bigger scale. In all, we hope to reach a lot of people
to whom we owe thanks: not only to our past and present working colleagues within the company
but also the many customers and believers who through the years have helped us grow to what
we are today. A fabulous half century since its founding by George and Dora Pickrell in 1962,
Westmount Florist has become a respected and creative company. Over the years Westmount
Florist has led the way in Montreal for its innovative and original floral designs. We are always
creating new designs for you and keeping up with the popular trends that separate us from the
competition. Actually, we like to think of ourselves as the competition.
For those of you born around my time, you’ll recognize this blog’s title as a Michael Jackson song and one that certainly got our feet moving to the beat. There is a point to this title and blog…the point being charity.
I can still remember as a young girl going into Select Pastry located next to our dad’s first Westmount Florist location at 4154 St. Catherine St. I loved going there with our mum, Dora to pick up some petit fours, homemade pies, special cakes for our birthdays and just about anything else you could salivate over.
On March 16th, 2011 we unveiled our new logo and launched our new website with a lovely party at the Westmount boutique on Victoria Ave. Each guest was asked to enter their name in a draw, the prize being a gift of flowers each month for a year from Westmount Florist.
