From Jordan, owner of Thelma's Flowers:
"The concept of a flower shop developed when both my wife and I were living in downtown Grand Rapids. We lived separately and I wanted to provide her with a loving reminder of how much I truly cared for her, so what better way than flowers! Every other week I was traveling well outside of downtown to make the perfect arrangement. Eventually, I was purchasing flowers every week and that’s when the concept of Thelma’s began."
"Thelma O’Flaherty was my grandmother who absolutely cherished the color pink. When we traveled to visit her I would bring her pink flowers every trip. She was a big influence on my life and she is remembered each and everyday. In fact, we have on display her favorite chairs(pink) in the flower shop!"
