Popular flower shop to bloom in old gas station building

The old gas station on State St. near 28th St. is about to get another new lease on life.

The station first started selling gas in 1958 according to property records. For the last 20 years or so it’s been home to a dry cleaning business – first under the McRae’s name and later as Clothesline Cleaners. It closed last year.

Now, Wildflower Floral is set to move in. The floral and plant shop will leave its current location on Bannock St. near 10th St. for the larger space on State St.

[Boise’s proposed State St. urban renewal area could include Garden City, too]

Workers filled in the old garage door space, but permits show new all-glass garage doors will be installed. A $34,000 remodel project is underway to modernize the space for Wildflower.

The business, under owner Paige Johnston, provides floral services plus other plants and succulents – as well as wedding and event floral services.

Wildflower said it hopes to be open in the new building next month.
