She had worked at the shop under the previous name, Fremont Florist, for 10 years when the owner suddenly died with no family or heirs. Scarpelli contacted the landlord, worked out the details and became the new owner.
She changed the name to identify the shop with the Beaumont Village commercial district. Beaumont Florist is a full-service business offering delivery, flower arrangements, plants, stuffed animals, cards and fresh flowers daily. Scarpelli and three staff members also can handle corporate settings, weddings and funerals.
Scarpelli lives 10 blocks from the shop and has seen many changes in the neighborhood in more than 30 years.
“The street has grown up,” she said. The commercial district once was concentrated at Northeast 42nd Avenue on Fremont, but now extends for many blocks.
The shop telephone number is (503) 281-7091. E-mail is ten.e1503215984ciffo1503215984tsewq1503215984@tsir1503215984olftn1503215984omuae1503215984b1503215984. The website is www.beaumontflorist.net.
