Customers of Florals In Time in Gap, PA, were saddened to learn the business was damaged in a recent fire in the building the florist shares with Gap Laundry—but the owners want to reassure the community they are still open and ready to assist with gift purchases and flower delivery.
On their Facebook page, the team wrote:
The flower shop is still functioning by the grace of God through friends and neighbors. Phone number (717) 442-4946 is still active and forwarding to my cell. Thanks again for all the prayers, support and confidence in us to continue to serve you through this storm!
The fire on May 13th was caused by an electrical malfunction and mostly affected the laundromat, according to a report on Lancaster Online. However, Florals In Time did sustain smoke damage. The community rallied around the florist, and volunteers from Gap Community Church quickly helped board up the doors and hooked up generators to the shop’s flower cooler.
Earlier in the week, the shop’s staff thanked their neighbors for their kindness:
I am blessed by the prayers and support of friends, family, and community! Love to all and thank you to all who continue to help me keep my shop running through the next couple of weeks.
This show of support has enabled the florist to continue accepting and fulfilling orders for every occasion, including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and get well gifts. They are also taking orders for fruit and gourmet baskets to deliver to all local hospitals and funeral homes.
