Owner , Taylor

I have dreamed of owning a shop and to now be living that dream is quite amazing. I am an Interior Designer by trade and for the past 10 years have loved helping clients with their homes and renovations from start to finish. I have always had a creative eye and this oppurtunity is one that I am blessed to add to my resume. I have lived in Wetaskiwin since I was 10 years old and am proud to call it my home. The support from all my family and friends has been incredible and I am excited for this new journey as a business woman in my home town. Shopping local has always been important to me and I can't wait to serve Wetaskiwin and its surrounding communities with all their floral and retail/giftware needs.  

It's very exciting to now own "The biggest florist shop in Wetaskiwin", Town Florist. We are ready to take on this new adventure and are honoured to continue the legacy built by Dennis Pederson, in 1967. We are committed to keeping and enhancing the long term relationships built. Our shop is conveniently located just off main street, right behind BMO.

We used Local Roots for our wedding and cannot say enough great things about working with Taylor and her team! Not only does she bring a unique style to floral design, she asked a lot of great questions about us, and was somehow able to weave in every one of the items we spoke about in our consult into our flowers! There were so many special touches we really appreciated. Taylor worked with our budget, and even was able to order extra table garland for me the week before the wedding, when we realized we needed more than we thought. Her delivery and set up was perfect, and everyone raved about how the flowers looked. We loved our wedding florals, and will happily support Taylor and the Local Roots team again! If you are looking for something different, stylish, and local – don't hesitate to use Local Roots!"
