US (OH): Toledo-based greenhouse won’t re-open for this Mother’s Day

1 Min Read

Something will be missing from Toledo this Mother’s Day. Koraleski Flowers, a West Toledo institution since 1994, has ceased operation at the Macy’s parking lot at Franklin Park Mall.

“Mother’s Day weekend was always the best time for our business,” said greenhouse owner Darren Koraleski. “Everyone is just starting to plant, getting gifts for mom, and planning their gardens. Everything is growing great and everybody’s happy.”

According to Mr. Koraleski, the closure of the business was necessitated by Macy’s plans to redevelop the space and establish a restaurant there. “I’m grateful for what Macy’s has done for us and what they did over the years. They wanted to move on and make a change,” he said.

The Macy’s store manager, Teri Shalk, said she was not authorized to comment on the departure of the Koraleski greenhouse. A spokesman for Franklin Park Mall, Julie Sanderson said, “Franklin Park wishes Koraleski the best in their future business operations.”
