Missouri's first KaBloom franchise will open in the Grand South Grand Business District on Friday, August 27th, at 3101 South Grand, just across from Tower Grove Park. KaBloom is a totally new way for St. Louisans to buy flowers and potted plants. Our store is warm, inviting and fun with over 200 different varieties of the freshest flowers and plants you'll feel like you are walking through a garden.
It is important to us that we offer convenience, so our location (which was formerly occupied by Paramount Drug) is easily accessible to both pedestrian and vehicular traffic. We open early and close late, offering our customers an added layer of convenience that is not found with a traditional florist. Most importantly, we get our flowers and plants direct from the growers, so our flowers are fresher, our quality higher and our prices unbeatable. We believe flowers should be enjoyed everyday, not just on special occasions, and offer a European-style market which invites you to sample from the wide array of plants and fresh-cut flowers each week.
KaBloom's co-founders are Thomas G. Stemberg and David Hartstein. Mr. Stemberg is Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Staples, Inc., the Office Superstore. Since its first store opening in May 1986, Staples has grown to over 1,300 stores worldwide. David Hartstein, KaBloom's President and CEO, co-founded Super Office, the first office superstore chain in Israel. In the summer of 1997, Mr. Hartstein returned to Boston to build KaBloom. KaBloom opened its doors in December 1998, with three avenues to purchase flowers: through the Internet at www.kabloom.com, by telephone at 1-800-KaBloom and at retail locations in greater metropolitan Boston. Consumer acceptance of KaBloom has been immediate. In fact, we have become known as "the Starbucks of flowers." There are now over 70 retail outlet locations in 26 states nationwide.
At KaBloom South Grand, we promise to inspire you with the most exciting varieties of the freshest, highest quality flowers at the best prices. Please stop by and allow Ray Grimes and his staff to introduce you to the KaBloom experience. We are proud to be part of the community and look forward to serving you and your friends!
