Business is blooming in New Britain thanks to a budding flower shop.
Nick Erlacher says he was 18 when he first created floral arrangements for a wedding out of his garage. For years after, he pursued his passion and learned the business.
“I started working in Durham at Wild Wisteria and it just went from there," says Erlacher.
At 25 years old, Nick is the owner of New Britain Flower Shop. The previous owner of 13 years offered to sell it to him shortly after he started working there last year.
With new ownership came a different style.
“We’re not making your standard bouquet, nothing is too tight -- everything’s kind of fanned out,” explains Erlacher.
Located in the heart of New Britain’s Little Poland neighborhood, Nick wanted to bring the experience of a European flower shop to the area.
“They bring their store outside when it’s nice out so we love to put our flowers outside,” says Erlacher.
New Britain Flower Shop celebrated its grand opening on March 31, 2019.
