Today's Business Spotlight focuses on Bellwood Blooms, a floral shop and floral event service located in The Junction neighbourhood of Toronto.

Bellwood Blooms has been in business for about 3 years. The shop could sometimes easily be missed because of the exact corner of the Junction they're located in. But they are playing their part in regentrifying that particular side of the area. Locals who walk by are often pleasantly surprised at the presence of Bellwood Blooms and admire and appreciate the stunning arrangements that adorn the shop's storefront.

Owner Ruth initially started the business as a wedding and events floral business and ran a private studio out of the space. When the pandemic hit in March 2020, she had to pivot her business model. Since then, she's slowly turned her private studio into a plant and flower shop for the community. Thanks to the changes made, the business has actually expanded. Ruth has actually had to hire a couple more employees to help run her business. Rather than having to lay people off, Ruth has been able to contribute to the labour force in Toronto.

Bellwood Blooms does everyday flowers, including both fresh flowers from local farmers, as well as dried flowers, many of which are dried in-house to help reduce their carbon footprint. They also do tropical plants, ranging in size from small table plants up to larger floor plants. Bellwood Blooms also offers small gifts and accessories, including candles, planters, cards, artwork, and other little trinkets created and supplied mainly from local makers and artists. They always try to support locals as much as possible, which is particularly important and helpful given the current economic climate as a result of the ongoing health crisis.

The name "Bellwood Blooms" was partially inspired by Trinity Bellwoods Park. Ruth has lived in Toronto her entire life, and the overall brand is a homage to Toronto.  

Ruth's list of satisfied and happy customers continues to grow. You might want to find out why by checking out her shop in the Junction the next time you're in the neighbourhood! Bellwood Blooms is just one more reason why the Junction is a fantastic place not just to set up shop and run a successful business, but to plant some roots and call it home.
