Watkins Flowers of Distinction has moved to a larger Midtown location to better serve customers and expedite deliveries. The newly-expanded flower shop and event space is now open at 1612 N. Market Dr. in Raleigh, North Carolina.

One of Raleigh’s favorite florists has moved to a new location. Watkins Flowers of Distinction has expanded its business and moved into a larger and more accessible Midtown location at 1612 North Market Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609.

The new shop opened just days before Christmas on Monday, December 21, 2020 and features a beautiful wood-themed retail store along with an expanded floral design area. The site also includes warehouse space with a loading dock that will accommodate any size of delivery vehicle to streamline the delivery process.

Watkins Flowers of Distinction co-owners Sallie Taggart and Ed Carpp said the transition to the new space was nearly seamless despite taking place during some of the busiest shopping days of the year.

“The new shop is perfect for us and everything is in place,” Taggart said. “We’re delighted on a number of levels. We have more space, and a more centralized location for delivery in a well-established shopping area with customers who love supporting local businesses. We also continued our dedication to quality and sustainable green practices by installing state of the art plumbing, refrigeration, and high-efficiency, low energy usage equipment.”

Taggart said Watkins Flowers of Distinction is a perfect fit for the N. Market Drive location and they look forward to many years there.

“From day one they made us feel like they really wanted us to be there,” Taggart said. “They took the facility down to the studs, installed beautiful wood floors and painted everything in our colors, transforming the shop into a floral and gift showcase showcase that our customers will love to visit.”
