We were heartbroken to hear that shortly after writing this review, the folks of Beckman’s Florist had come to the very difficult decision that they had to close their doors:

Sometimes, you learn, there have been treasures under your nose all along. This one’s perfect for Valentine’s Day! 

We recently discovered the family-owned Beckman’s Florist, which has proudly served Long Island from it’s Larkfield Rd, East Northport location for almost 75 years. It was a lovely experience. 

The service was impeccable, the corsage incredible. It was also a delight to see all the gorgeous arrangements being prepared to grace other special occasions, offer love and care, and make any old day a bit brighter.

They have lovely gifts, too! This butterfly garden ornament is one of my favorite things. <3

It was heartbreaking, especially as we knew how much they loved their business. Then, we saw this on Facebook:

Seasonal ‘Scapes has some very exciting news! We are extremely happy and humbled to announce that we have acquired Beckman’s Florist. After 74 amazing years in our community, providing high-quality floral service, they came to the difficult decision to retire and sell their building. After our family spoke with their family, we have both decided to join our talents. Beckman’s will now be joining us at our location, 638 Larkfield Road, East Northport.
In the upcoming weeks, you will see new signage and information about our acquisition. Beckman’s Florist will now be a division of Seasonal ‘Scapes Garden Center.
Blending the fabrics of these two great families and businesses will allow Seasonal ‘Scapes to continue to serve our community with the top-notch service and quality that we strive to achieve.
Although Lisa will be “retiring”, she will be joining us as a per-diem floral designer and her daughter, Melissa, will also be sharing her talents and expertise with us as well. Please stop by and see their familiar faces and congratulate them on working with us to find a way to keep the Beckman’s name and tradition alive
within our great town!
We are beyond grateful and excited. These two businesses being woven together is just what our community needs. We are stronger together and when good people work together, great things can happen!

It sounds like wonderful news that underlines the strength and beauty of our communities. Now, they can take good care of themselves and each other, while still carrying on the legacy and talent they’ve been so proud to offer for so many years. We wish all involved the very best, and hope you consider them next time you need something special.
