After more than 50 years, The Little Red Barn is moving out of downtown Bluffton. While the florist no longer has a storefront, it continues to take phone orders and now offers free local delivery.
The full service florist shop offers fresh flowers, silk arrangements, plants, wind chimes, garden stones and angels, throws, wire-out service, and more.
The business is Bluffton's oldest flower shop and remains locally owned and operated. It was started in 1960 in Bluffton by Geneva Rammel and consisted of silk and fresh flower arrangements in an actual little red barn.
It was purchased by Sam Reichenbaugh who moved it to Main Street. Robin Romick bought the business in 1987 and managed it until September 1997.
Carol Phillips, its current owner, purchased the business in 1997 and continues to manage it today. "Our goal is to continue to supply The Little Red Barn's customers with quality merchandise and excellent service," said Phillips.
If pickup orders are required, customers may pick up purchases at Deer Creek, next to Greg's Pharmacy on Main Street.
The Little Red Barn's phone number remains the same and may be reached at 419-358-5066. The store's hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
