MEDINA — Sheri Strebelow had been handling floral arrangements on her own for 40 to 50 weddings a year without a store.
“I’d been doing weddings and events out of my house,” Strebelow said.
She said she finally found the right location at 113 W. Liberty St., next door to Cupcake a Day.
Sheri’s Floral Design opened in May in the about 800-square-foot store. She said she doesn’t yet have a website for her business.
“We’ve been getting by on referrals,” Strebelow said.
She celebrated her store’s grand opening Friday with a ribbon-cutting with several city and state leaders. She was joined by her husband, Kenneth; 7-year-old son, Gavin; and 4-year-old daughter, Brynn. She’s lived in Medina with her husband since 2013.
“I’m so happy to be here today and have so many friends who have supported me through the years,” Strebelow said.
Now that she has her own establishment, she plans to hire part-time help.
“I feel very welcome here (in Medina),” said Strebelow, who is a native of Brooklyn Heights.
Sheri’s Floral Design is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays and can be reached at (216) 702-4106.
