Candor Flower Shop

Stacy and Bob Pettit cut the ceremonial ribbon, signifying the grand opening of the floral shop. Director of economic development for Montgomery County, Savannah Heath (right), and Montgomery Community College's small business center director, Emily Tucker (left), help hold the ribbon. 

Opening a business is both difficult and rewarding, with both of those things being interchangeable; and the hope is that some day, the new business will become a staple in the community. There are some times where the business that has already become a staple in the community is available to a new owner. Enter Stacy Pettit, the newest owner of Candor Flower and Gift. 

Pettit became good friends with Diane McCallum, the previous owner of the “always reliable” floral shop, when she and her husband, Bob, bought flowers from there for their daughter’s wedding. They became very close, and the talks began about Pettit’s owning the shop one day way in the future.
