Ruth Messmer Florist Moves to New Location


Ruth Messmer Florist has moved to its new location in the Sunview Business Center at 1850 Boy Scout Drive, #111 in Fort Myers.

Serving Lee County for over 65 years, the new location marks a major milestone for the florist, as it had resided at its prior location on Cleveland Avenue since its inception in 1952.

A third-generation family-owned and operated business, the full-service florist features a variety of options for all occasions, including fresh floral arrangements, silks, dried and foliage plants, as well as gourmet and fruit gift baskets.

A BloomNation premier florist, the company provides high-quality design and service to meet customers’ every need. The florist also has its own fleet of vehicles to ensure fast and reliable delivery.

The florist’s commitment to excellence and professionalism has earned them the coveted best of Southwest Florida honor. The new location is open for business, and operating hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 1 pm.

“We are very grateful to the Southwest Florida community for its support over the past 67 years,” said Co-owner Jessica Gnagey. “Our business wouldn’t be what it is today without our wonderful customers and the values and commitment my grandmother instilled as well as the legacy she built. The new location allows us to better serve our customers and continue our tradition of providing the very best designs and more.”
