Strange’s at 8010 Midlothian Turnpike -Closing

Date: February 17, 2017
Time: All Day
Location: 8010 Midlothian Turnpike, Richmond, VA

Due to the continued growth of the Internet as a retail sales channel, many of our customers use this website to make floral purchases.  This has caused pressure on sales at our smaller branches.  We were recently contacted by another local Richmond business with a fair offer for the building and land at 8010 Midlothian Turnpike.  Due to these two factors, We have decided to close this location to continue focus on Stranges.com and our other retail locations.

We encourage all customers to contact our Hull Street location (804-321-0470) with future orders.  We will have our Midlothian phones forwarded to this location starting Saturday, February 18th.
