James Cranston of Odebolt recently purchased The Flower Shoppe in Ida Grove.

Cranston said, “We will be changing the name to “Flowers and More…,” featuring interior d├ęcor, flowers and more. We will continue to carry on Sherry’s amazing and beautiful talents. Sherry Thies has been an amazing mentor in working with me and teaching me all about the flower world. Sherry will still be here as part of my crew. However, she will be taking some much deserved days off to enjoy her family.”
