Main Wholesale Florist expansion blooms into new Clifton location
December 30, 2013 by Mark
A drive down Clifton Avenue might lead some to believe a well-known establishment has closed, but Main Wholesale Florist (MWF) is still here and stronger than ever. Business has been so good for the imported flower business that it has moved to larger quarters on Styertowne Road.
The family-owned business, established in 1959, imports flowers for resale from all over the globe, including Columbia, Thailand, Holland, and Ecuador, as well as several area of the U.S. In a press release, the new location was described as being a “16,000-square-foot floral superstore”. Along with any change in address for a business, the need for a new stationery printing order that includes that address is usually necessary.
With its additional square-footage, MWF now boasts an indoor open flower market with multiple display refrigerators, as well as climate-controlled boxes for display. The new location also comes ready with new docks that are ideally suited to the purpose of taking in imported flowers.
James Anzaldi, Clifton’s Mayor, expressed satisfaction that the MWF had chosen to stay, saying:
“[Businesses] come to Clifton because they know Clifton is a business-friendly City.”
The Clifton location is one of two owned by the Gambuti family, now with a second generation in the operation of the business. The second location for Main Wholesale Florist is in Elmsford, New York. The company originated in Paterson and has expanded beyond cut flowers to include, containers, plants from both the U.S. and overseas, and flower-related items.
