Tipton & Hurst will celebrate the opening of its new Pine Bluff location with a ribbon cutting and grand opening ceremony on Monday, May 2 at 2 p.m. The ceremony will be held at the floral retailer’s newest location, 2608 West 28th Avenue in Pine Bluff.
Tipton & Hurst will celebrate all week with a ribbon cutting, free flowers and specials including 20 percent off any in-store purchase.
Founded by Joe Hurst and David Tipton in 1886, Tipton & Hurst is the oldest floral retailer in Arkansas. The company expanded into Pine Bluff when it purchased Shepherd Florist and Greenhouse in 2017. They have operated out of Shepherd’s original location at 910 West 29th Avenue since.
“Tipton & Hurst has been a fixture of the Central Arkansas community for more than 135 years,” said Howard Hurst, president and CEO of Tipton & Hurst. “Our new Pine Bluff location offers state-of-the-art floral equipment and an expanded wedding registry, silk flower, live plant and interior decorating services. We look forward to continuing to serve the Pine Bluff community and the entire Southeast Arkansas Region for many years to come.”
