Traverse City Florist Closes After 72 Years of Business


Some very sad news for a florist shop in Traverse City Saturday.

Teboe Florist closed their doors for the last time.

The florist shop was a staple in the Traverse City community.

It had been open for 72 years.

The owner says she is closing the shop down to spend more time with her family.

She also says that while the florist was thriving for decades, it’s now having a tough time competing with bigger box stores.

“We’ve come to the end of an era here, and it’s getting more and more costly to keep operating at this location,” says Tessa Alexander, the owner of Teboe Florist. “We will certainly miss the business and the employees. We’ve got some wonderful employees.”

Teboe Florist wants to thank Northern Michigan for all the support they’ve given the shop over the decades.
