Countryside Offers More than just Flowers in Londonderry

Jul 02, 2012 No Comments by

Potted plants, wreaths and more are available at Countryside.

From its “just-right” sized location in the Apple Tree Mall in Londonderry, New Hampshire, Countryside Florist sells quality plants, flowers, arrangements and gift baskets. Built on family values and superior products, Countryside has blossomed from the business seeds that were planted 26 years ago in Londonderry into a full service florist.

Al and Phyllis Giguere, along with daughter Shelly, began Countryside Florist in Crossroads Mall in Londonderry in the mid-1980’s. Realizing the opportunity for a start-up business, the family decided to begin a florist shop. Between Al’s background of business and Shelly and Phyllis’ crafty sense, Countryside Florist became a reality. For thirteen years, Countryside operated out of the Crossroads Mall on the corner of Mammoth Roads and Route 102 before moving to the Apple Tree Mall location.

Countryside Florist has a wide selection of individual and bouquet flowers.

Currently, Countryside is run primarily by Al and Phyllis’ son Jim, who joined the business soon after opening. However, Al, Phyllis, and Shelly continue to play an active role in the business. Many other family members also lend helping hands when needed, especially during the holiday seasons.

Jim also serves as the President for Teleflora’s New Hampshire-Vermont Unit. As president, he works side by side with some of the world’s best floral designers to educate other florists on all aspects of the floral industry. Countryside also features designer/wedding consultant extraordinaire Lynda Aramento.

Flowers are purchased from a variety of sources, mostly hand selected from local wholesale suppliers. Trips to the Boston Flower Market are made on occasion and customers will even find Londonderry-grown flowers at Countryside. Experience has taught Countryside where to get the finest flowers, allowing the shop to offer only the best products to their customers.

These flowers at Countryside Florist were locally grown in Londonderry.

Simple flower bouquets, elegant centerpieces, and specially-made corsages, along with wedding, party, and funeral arrangements are just some of the floral selections at Countryside Florist. The shop will also deliver locally and are able to ship orders worldwide.

Countryside Florist sells not only flowers and arrangements but also a variety of potted plants. Personalized food and gift baskets, stuffed animals, jewelry, and household decorations are available for purchase. Fine crafted jewelry, coffee mugs, plants, bamboo shoots, and much more are also available.

Fine crafted jewelry is available for numerous occasions at Countryside Florist.
