Local flower shops “petaling it forward” Wednesday

EAST PEORIA (WEEK) — Flower shops in central Illinois were “petaling” it forward Wednesday.

Staff members at Becks Florist were giving out free flowers in hopes to spread kindness and brighten everyone’s day.

“Emotions are what it’s all about. Whether it (is) smiles, tears, or whatever it may be, emotions make people happy,” said Becks Florist owner Greg Becks.

Becks in East Peoria is just one of many participating in the area.

Other shops “petaling” it forward include:

Despite the rebuild, the Greenhouse Flower Shop in Pekin will be participating at the Pekin Post Office and Beechams Market in Tremont.
