Scrolling through Facebook one day Mindy Hedberg came across a post that piqued her attention, the owner of Huckleberry Floral and Gift was looking to sell the business.
Hedberg, who was living in St. Paul and working for Summit Brewery decided to mesh her two passions together, retail and art and buy the floral shop. Growing up in Claremont, she's familiar to the area and is now excited to promote Dodge Center and help build a stronger business community.
Aside from bringing beauty to people's lives through flowers, Hedberg hopes that she always leaves people better than when she found them. "I always want people to leave the shop a little better than when they came in," she said. "Even if it's just a phone call, I want to make that person feel better." She added that anyone is always welcome to come into the store just to chat. "I want to be a part of this community."
