Twenty-five years ago, I decided to open up a floral shop in Aurora. In March of 1997, I set about finding a suitable location. After renovations were completed, Flowers By Terry opened on April 15, 1997, at 14799 Yonge St. in Aurora.
The first several months were a little rough. However, with my dad by my side, we went and joined the Aurora Chamber of Commerce. Rosalyn Gonsalves and Mary Lynn Stephenson still remember that visit of the father/daughter duo wondering about membership and its benefits.

“Congratulations on 25 years. It’s been a great ride (mostly in a Ford). I was told how the regular delivery of floral arrangements to our dealership boosted the morale of my Staff and brightened the spirits of our customers. I owe a great deal to you (and the ladies at the Chamber) for the success we enjoyed over the years.”
A simple “Thank You” seems inadequate to express my gratitude to all of my customers and businesses in Aurora and the surrounding area, for their loyalty and support over the last 25 years. It goes without saying that without ALL of you, Flowers By Terry would not be the success it is today and I am so grateful for your support.
To the girls-ladies who have been there for me always, Thank You.
These words will never cover enough of all I would like to say but as the story continues on I do have to go back to work now.
