A new business in the City of Kalona will open its doors for the first time today. After a year of preparing Amy Helmuth will be opening her new flower shop Petals.
Helmuth majored in Horticulture and Floriculture while in college and then worked in a flower shop for a few years before she took time to raise her family.
Helmuth shares that she’ll be specializing in weddings, funerals and everyday flower work. She adds she’ll also be carrying locally made gifts and antiques. Petals will be having an open house on December 7th.
The store located a mile west of Kalona on Highway 22 will have hours Monday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. She will also be available by phone Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
