Coshocton Business Profile: Linnet's Flowers On The Square

Linnet's Flowers On The Square, 248 Main St., stands out in the crowded local floral industry because of Linnet's dedication to offering the freshest flowers and convenience for her customers.

I asked Linnet what service she offers that would surprise Coshocton. She says, "Most people are surprised that they can order flowers and get them delivered not only the same day, but many times, within a couple of hours." (I'll remember that the next time my wife leaves for work while cursing my name). There's something to be said about dealing with a local hands-on business owner who must deliver a higher level of personal service to compete with out of town corporations. Linnet says, "We offer a variety of cut flowers which are shipped in daily. We want our customer and the recipient to have the freshest flowers we can possibly acquire."

As you walk around Linnet's, you'll be pleased with the color and wonderful smells of fresh cut daisies, carnations, roses, and the tropical flower, bird of paradise. Also, if your looking for a more permanent flower arrangement, Linnet has a wonderful selection of silk flower arrangements.

For CTCN historical readers, Linnet's sits in the unique Rager and Tumblin building. Rager and Tumblin were local druggists who built the beautiful building in order to ply their trade. Many years later, the building housed a notorious pool hall and gin joint. An outside set of stairs still wear the sign "no spitting allowed"(how's that for irony?). Also, the building exterior still wears the "ghosts" of past advertising.

Next time you need to say "I love you", "I'm sorry", "thank you" or "get well", and you want the best fresh flowers/service, call Linnet at 888-622-5171. You can visit Linnet's via the internet or visit the store, 248 Main St. 9-5:30 M-F and 9-2 on Saturday.
