Petals & Vines plans 'reopening'
MONMOUTH -- Petals & Vines will return to its original location at 173 Main St. in downtown Monmouth on Friday, Dec. 2.
Maggie and Dwight Triplett were forced to relocate their flower and gift shop to a temporary spot on Broad Street after it was damaged during a major fire in June.
That blaze began next door and gutted the former Real Taste of India Restaurant.
Petals & Vines on Main Street has been under renovation since August.
The revamped store is the same size, but will feature a new floor plan, a higher ceiling with tin cornices, a new wheel chair-accessible bathroom and other improvements.
"We've been able to redesign the space to accommodate future floral design classes we will be offering," Maggie Triplett said.
The "grand re-opening" this Friday will feature refreshments and prize drawings. Petals & Vines will also participate in the Monmouth Hometown Holiday event.
