History of Palmer Flowers:
Members of the Palmer family moved west from Chicago to Denver and Boulder in the early 1900’s. Having learned the flower business from his uncles in Boulder, Spiro Palmer and his wife Angela opened the Palmer House Florist in 1976, a 1,000-square-foot fresh flower store in Old Town Fort Collins, Colorado.

Spiro had the knowledge and experience to be successful as well as a vision of growth for the future. In 1981 the business name was changed from Palmer House Florist to Palmer Flowers. In 1982 Palmer Flowers moved to a well known 18,000 square foot store located on South College Avenue.
Palmer expanded his business to include silk flowers and home décor in 1996 when Palmer Decorating Gallery opened adjacent to the flower shop. In 1997, Palmer opened the Palmer Design Center which housed a collection of home decorating stores to provide one stop shopping. The fresh flower shop and gallery combined into an impressive 20,000+ square foot store in 2004, which remains the current main location.
