G.G.'s Artistry In Flowers, 7132 Parklane Road Suite G: 2009   7 comments

Posted at 2:57 am in Uncategorized

I like to eat lunch at the Schlotzsky's on the corner of Parklane and O'Neil Court sometimes, and the last time I was there, I noticed that several of the suites in the little corner strip it occupies were vacant. You would think that it's a visible high-traffic location, but I guess being near Columbia Mall isn't the draw it used to be.

If you click through to the large version of the picture, you can tell that there was originally some other writing between "G.G's" and "Flowers", but I can't make out what it would have been. I'm putting 2009 as the closing date here, but honestly I can't recall if I ever saw the place open or not. I guess florists don't really impinge much on my attention.

UPDATE 26 Feb 2011: Changed the title to give the full shop name "G.G's Artistry In Flowers" given in the comments, and in the main marquee for the Corner Shoppes of Parklane, which I somehow totally missed when I took the initial picture above. Here it is:

UPDATE 28 March 2011 -- It's now a We Buy Gold place:

  1. GG's Artistry in Flowers was the original name. They were fake flowers.

    I know this because I too used to eat at that Schlotzsky's and looked in the window once.

  2. Wanted to mention this, riding down Millwood the other day I noticed Shandon Florists was vacant. I wonder if ther're "gone" or just moved.

  3. I was thinking they moved a few blocks away in a former "nails salon." At least I thought it was the same people.

  4. Ignore previous comment. It was supposed to be a response to the Shandon Florist post.

  5. I believe Shandon Florist moved a few blocks west on Millwood.

  6. Is that the same little plaza where Frantic Atlantic Surf Shop used to be? I remember hearing their commercials on WNOK.

  7. @ Ken, GG's Artistry in Flowers was most definitely NOT just fake flowers! They created beautiful fresh and artificial arrangements. You could purchase wedding flowers, funeral flowers, just because bouquets, dish garden baskets of various plants, single potted plants, stuffed animals, gourmet food baskets and balloon bouquets, just to name a few of their items. The did beautiful work & it's a shame to see they're gone!! Know your facts before you comment, sir!!!!"
