Still ‘blooming’ on blooms
‘Blooms on Gladstone’ and ‘Debs n Bloom’ Florists are family businesses owned and operated by me, Deb Peneha. I’ve been in the florist industry for over 25 years and I started my first full time job as a junior Florist here in Gisborne in 1987 at Blooms on Gladstone (known as Berys’ Lot back in the 80’s, 90s, early 2000). I completed my professional Florist Association certificate and opened Debs n Bloom florist in 2001.
In 2010, I returned to my old flower girl roots at Berys’ Lot and renamed it ‘Blooms on Gladstone’. This is a very popular and prominent corner of Derby Street & Gladstone Rd located in the central city of Gisborne. You can’t miss us, we’re the only Florist on the main street.
Our businesses are ‘family rich’
Our Motto is “family stick together”. To that end, my husband Selwyn helps with deliveries while our son Tobias tags along with Dad in the afternoon and delights our happy recipients with a cheesy grin – works every time!
Our two amazing daughters, Nikki & Kaytie also help out at the florist shops after school. It’s such a treat to have my children with me at our work place and of course, there’s also Nana Vicki & Aunty Eve, the amazing support act.
My job at the helm, is to make sure everything is running smoothly, our clients are happy, the team is happy, and any gaps in the operation are quickly turned into opportunities.
Our Customer Service Promise is simple:
• Superior service
• Quality product &
• Professional advice
We are PASSIONATE about what we do and the pleasure fresh flowers bring to the senses – we know they lift the spirit with vibrant colours and unique textures.
So say it With Beautiful Flowers, delivered to the door almost anywhere in the world
