Last week, Congressman Jim Himes came to visit Sue Palazzo and her shop at City Line Florist, located in Trumbull. Susan is a fourth generation florist and her family business has been around since 1918 ... ust three years short from being 100 years old

Palazzo invited Jim Himes to visit her shop and he spent a full hour getting a tour, meeting the employees, and listening to her and her brother Carl (co-owner), as they spoke about the industry issues. They discussed shop operations, energy costs, flower growing and shipping logistics, environmental concerns, floral design techniques, and deceptive advertising. They showed him how they run their business.

Months back in March, Sue went to Washington DC with Society of American Florist (SAF) congressional action days and met with his team, which is when she invited him to visit her shop.
