Plans for a local landmark floral shop, Christian & Johnson Flowers and Gifts, to relocate from its current location have been delayed this week.

As previously reported, the gift shop had planned to move from their downtown location after over 100 years to a new location at a townhouse on East 1st and Neal Dow Avenue, citing a need to grow in size.

The business stated this Wednesday through its Facebook post that the shop is now facing “a very unexpected, very large financial hurdle,” with no current means to get over it.

Owner Melissa Heringer currently is not releasing any specifics on the finances in question. On Friday, she said that for now she is still hopeful she can work towards an agreeable solution with the city and is trying to stay positive moving forward.
