The Daisy Patch Looking to Blossom as Memphiss Newest Business

Scotland Countys newest business, The Daisy Patch, welcomed customers during a grand opening celebration held Friday in Memphis.

The flower and gift shop officially opened for business on October 15th at the new building adjacent to the Scotland County Pharmacy on Highway 136.

Owner Kim Fogle treated guests to a variety of specials during the big day, including refreshments and door prizes.

The Memphis Area Chamber of Commerce performed a ceremonial ribbon cutting to welcome one of its newest members.

Fogle, who owns the store with her husband, Kiel, a pharmacy student, says the shop has plenty to offer the community. She highlighted a wide variety of unique gift items available at the store in addition to the fresh cut flowers, plants and silk arrangements. The Daisy Patch features cards, stuffed animals and balloons but also offers inspirational books, memorial stones and rustic stars and wall signs not to mention a special line of SCR-I Tiger gifts,

Swan Creek candles are something Im very excited about, Fogle said. The soy-based candles burn cleaner, which is really nice for people that sufferer from allergies, plus they produce a great aroma.

The gift and flower shop also offers the latest in tanning fashions, featuring two brand new tanning beds, including a stand-up model. Both are high output models. Users will get a full visit in just 12 minutes in the stand-up model and in just 15 minutes in the standard tanning bed. The store offers a full-line of tanning lotions and accessories.

Fogle, a 2003 graduate of Scotland County R-I, is currently finishing up her degree work in floral design. She is a 2007 graduate of Buena Vista University, but recently returned to school for her recent business pursuit.

She credited the Innovators Caf at the Northeast Regional Planning Commission office for aiding her in preparing the business plan and laying the ground work for the new store.

Fogle is joined at The Daisy Shop by award-winning designer Gina Ogle of Wyaconda. The University of Missouri graduate brought home honors from a recent competition in St. Louis to go along with such distinctions as performing design work for former Vice President of the United States Dick Chenney. Ogle brings her 10 years of design work to the Memphis store.

The Daisy Patch is open Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
