Learn the History Behind McKnight’s Fashion Floral and Gifts
The McKnight family has served the Peterborough area for over 100 years. From their early beginnings, McKnight’s Fashion Floral and Gifts has served East city as the main grocery store. There was always a passion for flowers and in the 60s they added a small greenhouse to offer bedding plants.
In the 70s and 80s, McKnight’s Fashion Floral and Gifts focuses was as a full-fledged garden centre and fruit market. We became known for miles around as having the best quality at the fairest prices.
In 1972, the family branched out and added a flower shop to the mix. It was natural to add fresh flowers – it was the early days of the Ontario Flower Growers, and local fresh flowers were readily available for the first time. Back then, we were open 7 days a week and stocked a full cooler full of inexpensive bouquets and a greenhouse full of tropical and flowering plants.
As the years passed, the business evolved and grew to offer a full line of floral services from Wire Services (FTD and Teleflora) to weddings and funerals. At the same time, we never lost our roots and have continued to maintain a large selection of fresh flowers with over 25 feet of display cooler full of ready-to-go bouquets and designs.
In the late 80s and early 90s, McKnight’s added gifts, candles, body and bath, gourmet foods, cards, Crocs™, holiday décor, and, finally, a full ladies fashion department including handbags, fashion jewellery, and accessories.
All along the way, we have listened to what our customers were asking for and watched the trends – never afraid to try something new! In fact, in October 2014 McKnight’s added a specialty olive oils and vinegars tasting bar.
