Rene's Florist Merges With Blooming Gorgeous

Rene's Florist has continuously traded since 1965. In 2008, the retiring owner approached Blooming Gorgeous to see if we would like to purchase Rene's Florist. Blooming Gorgeous Flowers Pty Ltd operated both shops separately for 18 months.  

Rene's Florist was largely built on long-term regular customers.  Due to large number of regular clients phoning their orders into the shop, it made sense for the two shops to merge. To this day the merge has been very successful with many regular customers happy to make the switch to Blooming Gorgeous. 

Move to Toowoomba CBD

In November 2012, Blooming Gorgeous relocated to a gorgeous new store on the corner of Hume & Herries Streets in the Toowoomba CBD.
