Wilbraham Flowers Moves to Eastwood Shops on Boston Road in Wilbraham
WILBRAHAM—Claudia Trzeciak, the owner of Wilbraham Flowers, has moved her shop from its previous location at 2797 Boston Road to the Eastwood Shops at 2133 Boston Road.
The move occurred in mid-January, and Trzeciak re-opened her flower and gift store in February. She said relocating allows her more space as well as the opportunity to increase her walk-in customer base as the new store is in a well-known shopping plaza with additional shops and foot traffic.
A Ludlow native, Claudia worked in her mother’s floral shop while raising her children, before working in human services for many years. She felt the tug to return to floral work and opened Wilbraham Flowers in 2008, noticing that Wilbraham did not have a flower shop. Her store sells flowers and arrangements of all kinds, which can be purchased in the shop or online 24-7 at wilbrahamflowersflorist.com.
Trzeciak said she creates arrangements for all occasions, including weddings and funerals, with the latter being a particular specialty as she creates sprays and arrangements that creatively honor the memory of people who played guitar, loved baseball or had a rubber duck collection, for instance.
“I have also created sophisticated bouquets for funerals, such as a casket spray that used mosses, ferns and other woodsy items for a person who was a naturalist,” she said.
Trzeciak also provides ongoing creative work for churches, clubs, businesses and organizations in the area.
In addition to floral arrangements and bouquets, Wilbraham Flowers sells gifts and home décor, including Willow Tree and other figurines, Danforth pewter, jewelry, wind chimes and bird feeders. “People are finding these items for the first time because my displays can be roomier here at this new location,” Trzeciak said.
Trzeciak said she is best known for the quality and freshness of her flowers, which she will replace at no cost if a customer is unhappy, and her satisfaction surveys show an appreciation for her creativity and willingness to go over and above in quality service.
Wilbraham Flowers delivers daily to surrounding towns and local hospitals and churches.
Miranda Jacques, who works as a floral designer and web marketer, assists Trzeciak part-time in the shop, which is open: Mondays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Tuesdays through Fridays, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturdays 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
