"I'm a nurse by trade, but we've always done parties and events for family and friends," Freire said, "We were told to start a business (from friends and family members), years went by, and finally when saw the location for sale in Acushnet, we were all in. It was the perfect place and the traffic flow is great, so we said 'let's do it!'"

As a plus, Acushnet Flower Company is more than just flowers, they're a certified Yankee Candle dealer, a gift shop, and will eventually supply party rentals. From weddings to birthdays to special occasions, the Freire family is ready to take your order.

"Come in, tell us what you're looking for, and tell us what you want," Freire said, "If we don't have something you're looking for, we will get it. There's nothing we can't get. It's family-run and it's a cozy feel-at-home experience. If you ask me- we're a fun, honest, creative group of people ready to serve you."

The business will officially be up and running beginning Saturday, March 25th from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Hours of operation are scheduled for 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM on Monday-Friday, except 9:00 AM to Noon on Thursdays. Sundays will be closed.
