TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – A flower shop in Downtown Terre Haute has closed their doors for good.
The motto of Heinl’s Flower Shop – ‘151 years and still blooming’ but this Valentines Day they will no longer be in business.
This decision was made after a devastating water pipe burst on Jan. 9 and caused extensive damage to the design area, show room and an upstairs apartment.
The shop was originally going to re-open after repairs were made but, owner Vonda Monts said the loss of business led to her final decision to close for good.
She said this is a sad day for her and the business that she bought in 2001.
Monts plans to restore the building but what she will do with it has not been decided.
