Albion opens downtown holiday pop-up shop to remind people what it's like to shop downtown - Battle Creek Enquirer
The Albion Reinvestment Corporation and the store Pure Albion are sponsoring a holiday pop-up shop in the city's downtown.
Collective Goods is open at 111 South Superior St. until Dec. 22, on Tuesdays from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. The shop brings together 16 businesses from Albion and around the state, featuring holiday decor, clothing, handmade knives, olive oils, soaps, toys and baked goods.
The Albion businesses include Anna's House of Flowers, Jolly Green Junction, Black Swamp Cutlery, Foundry Bakehouse & Deli, Esham Family Farms and TNT Beauty Supply.
The idea for the pop-up began as a way "to remind community residents what it's like to shop in Albion and to get them thinking about what types of business they would like to frequent downtown," according to a press release from Albion Reinvestment Corporation.
Albion Reinvestment Corporation is an nonprofit which is planning to redevelop four blocks worth of downtown buildings, rehabbing 30 storefronts and 55 upper floor apartments over the next three to five years.
Titled the "Big Albion Plan," its focus will be on Superior Street.

Four Floral Businesses To Receive The Century Award In Palm Springs
Calla Lilies being his first floral crop. It was his Son, John B. Gould who opened the first of the family's flower shops in Middleport, Albion and Medina. Then came the first location in Lockport, on Locust near Main St.
The shop relocated to 83 Locust St. where Gould's has been servicing customers since 1952. John B. & Barbara Gould have spent years making the shop a family tradition. Their four children spent many years in the shop.
Janet Gould, the youngest of the fourth-generation time-honored tradition, manages day to day operations of the shop. She works alongside her Mother, Barbara, Niece, Kylee (Gould) Peters (who is a fifth generation Gould) and loyal staff.
Janousek Florist & Greenhouse Inc. Omaha, Nebraska
Now in their fourth generation, Janousek Florist originally opened in 1913 to serve the people of Omaha with the freshest flowers possible. Since then, they have been delivering to the entire Omaha Metro area with their own fleet of delivery vehicles and pride themselves on accommodating their customers' requests.
Edward and Fred Janousek founded Janousek Florist & Greenhouse Inc. as a wholesale business in 1913 inside a cemetery in Omaha, Nebraska.
Edward and Fred began to grow their own seasonal flowers and plants and over the last century and through four generations, they have maintained their position as the premier florist and greenhouse in Omaha.
Ervin and Eddie Janousek ran the business from 1956 to 1983. Donald Janousek took over in 1983 and continues to run it with his son, Eric.
While the days of delivering their flowers by streetcar are long gone, the Janousek family continues to pride itself on providing the freshest flowers and plants to the citizens of Omaha and the surrounding areas.
Lake Forest Flowers Lake Forest, Illinois
Erwin Dryskey moved his family to Lake Forest, Illinois, and opened the doors of Lake Forest Flowers in September of 1917. He went on to open two other flower shops on Chicago's North Shore.
When Grace McGill bought the Lake Forest shop from Dryskey in 1949, she moved it one block, to the corner of Illinois Road and Western Ave, where it stands today. McGill designed custom floral and wedding work for families in Chicago's North Shore communities until her retirement in 1981, when she sold the business to John Looby III, AAF. Looby, with a background in greenhouse growing (who earned his AAF by commercially developing the oxalis regnelli-white blooming shamrock), expanded the business.
Today, Lake Forest Flowers continues as a full-service boutique floral operation, and Looby's daughter, Eileen Looby Weber, AAF, joined the management team after earning her Bachelor's degree in horticulture and MBA. She established a large wedding and event following and has developed a variety of floral design education programs. Her continued efforts in promoting the floral industry earned her AAF in 2014.

Plan: More flowers, banners this year
Fairmont, from Interstate 90 down State Street, along South State Street and Albion Avenue to Gomsrud Park, down Blue Earth Avenue and Lake Avenue to Heritage Acres.“We get so many visitors to Fairmont for things like school events,” she said. “I’m excited to think about all those people and their reactions.”She mentioned a letter to the editor that appeared in the Sentinel last year. A woman praised the colorful addition of the flower baskets and banners although she wasn’t aware of the group that was responsible for them.“That was so cool, that somebody enjoyed what we did. That’s the treat after the hard work,” Hawkins said. “We’re all volunteers. It’s a lot of hard work, but it’s a lot of fun. There’s a great amount of joy in driving down the street and knowing we were a part of that.”The letter writer’s opinion is shared by other residents and business owners in the community. All business owners along the potential flower route gladly gave donations, with the exception of one individual. Hawkins specifically mentioned the board of directors at the Red Rock Center, a location that in previous years sported a basket and banner from a nearby pole. Because the center is a non-profit organization, the board was unable to make a donation to the program, but that did not prevent the individual board members from reaching in their wallets to make personal donations.“They enjoyed the flowers so much, they all pitched in out of their own pockets. That was really a neat thing,” she said.Flowers for a basket or a banner cost $75 each, and some individuals and businesses have donated enough to finance one or more of the items.“But we’ll accept any amount. The more money we get, the more banners and flowers we’ll get. If we get more, we’re just going to keep going,” Hawkins said.Donations can be dropped off at City Hall or sent to City of Fairmont/Focus on Fairmont, 100 Downtown Plaza, Fairmont, MN 56031. Please write “flowers/banners” on the memo line on checks.For more information, contact Hawkins at (507) 399-1682 or email her at email@example.com -- ... (Fairmont Sentinel)
