Laurie Anne's House of Flowers to open in Delano in late August

WICHITA — A new flower shop is coming to Delano.

Laurie Johnson is opening Laurie Anne's House of Flowers in about 3,000 square feet at 1812 W. Douglas.

"It's a beautiful building inside," she says.

Johnson says it's as if whoever designed the building did it with her in mind.

"I like just the choices they made."

There's a good-size workroom in addition to a retail area.

Carl Hebert with InSite Commercial Real Estate handled the deal.

Johnson already is selling flowers online. Her store will open Aug. 31 and will carry fresh and silk flowers, wreaths and small gifts.

"I have all kinds of little things," she says.

Johnson has previous experience as a wedding planner and hopes to offer those services in addition to flowers for weddings.

"I'll take it as far as I can go with it, really."
