Welcome back to South Milwaukee, Mari’s Flowers.
Mari Cucunato has moved her flower and gift shop, Mari’s Flowers, from Brady Street in Milwaukee to 905 Milwaukee Ave. downtown, completely transforming a derelict building into something truly special, with the help of Downtown Revitalization Grant.
The store softly opened in the last couple of days, with more regular hours to be announced. I had a chance to stop by on Saturday and welcome back Mari, who had a flower shop here more than a decade ago.
The building renovations are terrific, inside and out, the latest example of reinvestment in our city center. Stop by and see for yourself.
We will fix downtown South Milwaukee one building, one business owner at a time. It’s a long-term play, but the progress is real, and growing.
