HORSHAM Florist has plans to reopen at a temporary location tomorrow.
It comes after the owners were forced to close its doors when a fire destroyed the business on November 3.
Horsham Florist owners Heather Harrison, Rosemary Arnott and Susan McQueen have since decided to move the florist to a temporary location just two weeks after the fire.
The store will open tomorrow at 15 Darlot Street, opposite the car wash from 9am.
The iconic Horsham business opened in 1970 by Mabel Foreman who passed the keys down to her three daughters on June 30, 2007. The family-owned and operated business has been located at Roberts Avenue for over 20 years.
Mrs Harrison said they had lost 48 years of necessities and are rebuilding the florist from scratch.
“We have been in the shop doing stock takes, which is very difficult because everything is unrecognisable,” she said. “We don’t even have the basics so we are starting from scratch.”
Mrs Harrison said the temporary venue will give them a chance to get back to work and see their customers again.
“We are not sure when our shop will be fix and we did not want to be just sitting at home,” she said.
Mrs Harrison said they will move back into the shop on Roberts Avenue once repairs are completed.
