In 1887, the Stein family delivered flowers throughout Philadelphia via horse and buggy.
The horse and buggies might be gone, but more than 125 years later, Frankford Avenue’s Stein Florist is trying to maintain the same sense of professional and business ethnics the family founded the company on. But in a more 21st century kind of way. continue reading »
