Lilie’s Flowers Shop to move to east side at owner’s new center

A new lily will be popping up on Greenwich soon.

Vivian Tran is moving her Lilie’s Flowers Shop, which is named for her favorite flower, to a new strip center she’s building at 1095 N. Greenwich just north of FlightSafety.

“I can see the future on the east side,” Tran says.

Her shop has been at 2031 W. 21st St. just west of Amidon since 1999.

She says her new center, where she’ll move her store early next month, is closer to her home.

Her shop will take 1,350 square feet of her new 5,400-square-foot center. There are four units, but Tran says that “people can take whatever they want to” for space. She says the center would be good for retail or office use.

Tran doesn’t have any leases signed so far.

“I’ve got a couple interested, but it’s not a done deal yet.”

Christi Royse and Kameron Rich of J.P. Weigand & Sons will handle leasing at the center.

The building is still under construction but should be finished by late this month.

Though Lilie’s will be the same size as where it is now, Tran says the new space will be more modern.

“It fit me perfectly,” she says, adding that she’ll make her floral arrangements more modern as well.

Tran says she specializes in wedding and funeral flowers and is up to any challenge a customer may present.

“We’re not afraid to do anything.”

Though she’s currently in west Wichita, Tran says she has customers all over the city and wants it to remain that way.

“Wichita treats me well.”
