Westside Flowers by DeOrsey moving to new space

WICHITA — Westside Flowers by DeOrsey is remaining on the west side but moving east by just a bit.

Tina DeOrsey-McClernon’s shop currently is in about 750 square feet near 29th and Tyler. She’s moving to 1,500 square feet near 21st and Ridge, where Subway and Pho Chopstix are.

“We’re kind of bouncing back and forth right now,” DeOrsey-McClernon says of going between locations.

“The main reason we’re moving is just for the opportunity the extra space will give us,” she says.

In addition to fresh flowers, DeOrsey-McClernon says she has custom silk flowers as well, “which really is my favorite part of it.”

The new space also will allow her to expand her business with fresh floral design classes.

“I’m hoping that they’ll be a big hit.”

Adam Clements of Builders Inc. handled the deal. Builders handles leasing at the center.

The business will have an updated website as of Jan. 20.

DeOrsey-McClernon says she has to get through the Bridal and Event Expo this weekend; she hopes to then open in the new space the following weekend.
