McCarthy Flowers Purchases Additional Flower Shops

Members News

McCarthy Flowers, headquartered in Lackawanna County since 1952, just purchased 4 more Flower Shops in Northern Colorado – Palmer Flowers, with 3 locations, one in Ft Collins, one in Loveland, and another in Greeley CO. This iconic Floral Name began in 1976, and catapulted to become Northern Colorado’s premier florist. 

In addition, McCarthy Flowers also purchased Paul Wood Florist, the oldest florist in Northern Colorado, founded in 1932. Paul Wood Florist remains a fixture in downtown Ft Collins inside the oldest commercial storefront in Ft Collins.

McCarthy already owns two flower shops in Colorado, Lehrers Flowers, and Newberry Brothers Florist, as well as their own wholesale Florist, Associated Wholesale Florist. Prior to the acquisition of Palmer Flowers and Paul Wood Florist, McCarthy Flowers was already the largest volume retail florist in the state. With the new four shops added, McCarthy Flowers of Colorado has double their previous baseline of sale volume.

This latest acquisition brings McCarthy Flowers total store count to 30 throughout their 10 state footprint, and full time employee count to over 600. 

Kevin McCarthy, President of McCarthy Group Florists, says the iconic brands will continue to operate under their trusted names, and welcomes the talent pool to the McCarthy Family.
