North Coast Florists

North Coast Florists opened in June 2019 in Thurso.

The decision to open an independant florists was the idea of sisters-in-law Deirdre Swanson and Tracy Alexander.

Deirdre and Tracy felt that with their youngest children heading to High School that the time was right to bring together their individual skills and open a florists in Thurso's Town Centre.

Months of hard work ensured their business plan was successful so that when the perfect premises at 13 Rotterdam Street became available they were able to move forward and turn their great idea into reality.
