It has been an action-packed few years for us at Bella Flora. Our expanded retail space in the Pittsfield store has brought new opportunities – allowing us to bring you so much more in fresh flowers, plants, gifts and seasonal home goods. Thanks to a tireless creative staff and an amazing group of customers, we have seen our family business truly flourish.
Planning is now underway for the Great Barrington Guido’s renovation and expansion, and Bella Flora is delighted to be a part of that project. We put our hearts into everything we do at Bella Flora, and this Guido’s GB project will be no exception. We are committed to creating a fresh new space for our customers that will bring beauty and inspiration to everyone who passes through it. Oh the possibilities! The time is now for us to begin the work of planning the best digs possible for Bella Flora in advance of groundbreaking in early 2020.
This project is now a priority for our team, and we’ve had to make a difficult decision. This year, Bella Flora will not open our seasonal Garden Shop at 55 Pittsfield Rd. We will still offer organic veggie starts and herbs for sale at the front of both Guido’s store as we do each spring.
We want to say a big thank you to all the customers and staff who have made our Garden Shop such a joyous enterprise over the past four summers. Thank you for your support and enthusiasm. The Garden Shop has been a true labor of love for our family, and it’s with heavy hearts that we let it go. In the end, this will help us put much-needed energy towards the future as Bella Flora grows.
With gratitude and love,
Annie, Chris, and the Bella Flora team
