Tucson Real Estate: Local flower shop relocates to midtown

Owner Colleen LaFleur has been creating flower arrangements for events. Now she has a retail shop at 3065 N. Campbell Ave.

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, a local florist has opened a new retail location on the north side.

Atelier de LaFleur was formerly known as LaFleur Plantscapes + Fresh Flora and catered to events and corporate installations out of a spot in the train depot downtown.

Over the five years of operation, customers would often ask if they could buy custom floral arrangements for themselves, so owner Colleen LaFleur and manager Mica Brinson decided to open a retail shop.

They leased 800 square feet at 3065 N. Campbell Ave. Sheku Massarat, with Broker House Realty, handled the lease.

The flower shop is eco-conscious, LaFleur said, mindful of conserving water, shopping locally, recycling and repurposing materials and composting floral waste.

Atelier de LaFleur carries fresh flowers, indoor plants, cacti and succulents. The shop also has gardening tools and supplies, books, candles, home decor and jewelry. It is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

LaFleur has eight employees.
