Our Roots Run Deep...
Sending Beautiful Flowers Worldwide begins here in the Fox Valley. We can’t claim a corner on the market anywhere else, if we can’t deliver the goods to our own back yard. Memorial Florists business philosophy is summarized in our mission statement: To deliver the freshest and highest quality flowers, plants and gifts accessories, while providing the utmost in customer service.
Flowers send feelings. Each customer has a specific and unique need. It may be Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, but no two Valentines and no two Mothers are alike.
