Weber’s Florist and Gifts will have a fall open house from 9 a.m.-5 p.m. on Saturday.

“We always do fall and Christmas open houses,” Sharee McDonald, owner, said. “We want to showcase our gift shop and lots of really pretty things we have for fall.”

Silk gifts and arrangements are the focus of the fall open house, McDonald said, along with wreaths, flags, candles, centerpieces and a new item, wooden porch pumpkins.

“We think the wooden porch pumpkins will be very popular,” McDonald said. “We have lots of really neat things like that.”

Located at 1501 S. Sixth St. in Ironton, Weber’s is a staple of the business community now operating in its 111th year. Originally owned by the Miller family, Joe Weber bought the company in 1903, which at that time was a wholesale floral business. Joe had seven children who all worked in the shop. That is when Weber’s became a growing business with fields and greenhouses. In the 1940s, Weber’s started designing flowers. In 1965, Bonnie Weber started the gift shop and brought in a variety of gifts that were new to the community. In 1995, Bonnie Weber bought the floral shop. The McDonalds are the fourth generation of Weber’s to own the business.

“We offer a large variety of fresh flowers and gifts,” McDonald said. “We offer the convenience of safe and secure ordering online 24 hours a day.”

The goal of Weber’s is exceeding customers’ expectations.

“Our 100 percent satisfaction guarantee is our personal commitment to creating long-term relationships with our customers,” McDonald said. “Satisfaction is our No. 1 priority, not just because it’s our job, but because we care.”

Weber’s Florists has been voted one of the top-100 FTD florists in the nation for 30 straight years.
