Hometown Floral in downtown Kemmerer officially opened its doors on Monday, July 23.

Mother and daughter team Cheryl Long and Nicole Anderson are now the owners of the shop, which used to be Petals and Treasures.

“My mom just moved into town, and I’ve always wanted to buy this place, so we just went for it,” Anderson said.

Anderson said the pair closed on the shop July 9, and have been busy renovating and preparing ever since.

“We saw the potential for what this place could be,” Long said. “It’s a good opportunity and a dream come true to run it.”

Hometown Floral sells floral arrangements and a variety of gifts, including farmhouse-style decor, Wyoming merchandise and more.

The hours of the new shop, located on the Triangle at 819 S. Main Street, are Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

“We will be open this Saturday for Oyster Ridge,” Anderson said.

Hometown Floral will continue to host their grand opening celebration all week long.

“Wow. We are left speechless today. The support our community showed for our new business is truly life changing,” Hometown Floral posted on Facebook on the day of the grand opening. “We are blown away by the kindness this community has and the amazing, genuine people we are surrounded by. Thank you to every person who showed up to support us today and will continue to throughout our future. If there is a heaven on earth... it is Kemmerer.”
