The dedicated staff at Adele-Rae Florist will be more than pleased to help you get your special message across.

“We are proud to be a small family owned and operated business offering quality locally grown and imported flowers, as well as personalized service,” says Kathy Hanson, owner of Adele-Rae Florist. “Customers can come into our store and choose a bouquet from petite to large and luxurious. This is something we are trying to promote because sometimes people do not realize that this is available from a traditional florist.”

Burnaby’s Friendly Florist Family

This family business was established in 1963 and Kathy’s mother, Vera Banner, built its foundation through hard work and friendly service. Kathy clearly inherited her mom’s work ethic and commitment when she joined her in the early 1970s. She eventually inspired her own child, Aren, to join the family legacy. He has added a new perspective on the business as he holds a business degree with a focus on entrepreneurship from Simon Fraser University.

“I had a really great opportunity to get some hands-on, real-life experience in running a business while I was in school. It has been really great working in the family business for the last five years!” says Aren. He and Kathy are now running the family business along with dedicated staff.

“Our favorite part of this job is getting to know our customer and offering fresh, quality flowers and designs for birthdays, anniversaries, get wells, thank yous, babies, businesses, and sympathy, as well as the growing trend of people purchasing flowers ‘just because’,” says Kathy.

A Business that Continues to Blossom

Adele-Rae Florist celebrated 50 years of business in 2013. Over the years, thousands of Burnaby and Lower Mainland residents have come to appreciate the Hanson family’s thoughtful service and long-lasting flowers. This customer dedication is reflected in Adele-Rae Florist being voted ‘Best of Burnaby’ year after year. It’s the care they put into their flowers and their customers that keeps people coming back.

By phone or in person, Kathy, Aren and all the Adele-Rae staff are more than pleased to help their customers send a special floral message. Many of their designs, as well as their ‘Designer's Choice’ selections, can be viewed online at www.adeleraeflorist.com and can be delivered almost anywhere in the Lower Mainland.

“I love getting to know our customers and it’s a great feeling to be able to help so many people,” says Kathy. “A lot of our customers are phone-in customers and we never really meet them, but we get to know them over the phone. A lot of them come to us every year, so we have the opportunity to get to know them better each year when they call to order for their mom’s birthday, an anniversary or one of many other special occasions.”
