Gift shop open for business

June 16, 2005

Connie Burch, owner of the new Basehor business Connie's Floral and Gifts, said her June 1 opening has been nerve racking and exciting.

"A little nervous, yes, but definitely excited," Burch said. "We're kind of getting the kinks out before we have our grand opening."

Connie's Floral and Gifts offers fresh flowers, delivery, cards, balloons and is complete with a children's room that includes baby items and gift baskets.

"We just have a shop full of stuff, an assortment of gifts," Burch said.

This is the first business for Burch. While customer traffic has been slow to begin with, she said she's confident that area residents will warm to her new store once word gets out. Burch said she opened in Basehor because it's a growing area and there aren't many other businesses of its kind around.

The business will host a grand opening in July. A specific date has not yet been determined.

Connie's Floral and Gifts, 14500 Parallel Road, Suite G, is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Burch also said her business is open to customers by appointment.

To reach the business, call (913) 724-7171.
