Villa Feliz Flowers opening new location

Villa Feliz Flowers will open in its new location at La Plaza Shoppes, 6538 E. Tanque Verde Road, Suite 160, at 8:30 a.m. Friday. Its phone number will stay the same, 790-9500.

The flower shop will remain open through Thursday at El Mercado shopping center, which is being demolished to make way for a CVS pharmacy, at East Broadway and Wilmot Road.

Villa Feliz, started in 1971 and owned and operated by Georgeanne Fimbres, is the last remaining tenant of the plaza.

CVS bought the El Mercado shopping center for nearly $3.6 million in December.
