Wichita store giving out flowers for Memorial Day

Ann’s Fashions will give out free roses on Friday and Saturday to anyone who wants to place a flower on a veteran’s grave in honor of Memorial Day.

“They don’t even have to know the veteran,” co-owner Lisa Reiter said.

Ann’s Fashions is working with the Memorial Day Flowers Foundation. In addition to the free flowers the store is giving out, Ann’s Fashions paid for 150 flowers that will be placed on graves in Arlington National Cemetery, Reiter said.

“No purchase necessary,” Reiter said in a news release. “We just thought this was a great way to honor our Veterans and not forget what Memorial Day was really about.”

The story, at 6428 E. Central in the Normandie Shopping Center in Wichita, is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday.
