Our history

A florist was born

In 1949, George Pickrell walked through the picturesque McGill University greenhouses and knew – right then and there – that he wanted to be a florist. Later that very same day he came across a peddler selling carnations on a busy downtown Montreal street and was fascinated by the idea of selling something lovingly grown by hand. From those modest beginnings, Westmount Florist was born.

The first shop opens

George went on to spend several years working for various high-profile florists in Montreal and Toronto before opening a shop of his own. In 1962, he and his wife Dora opened Westmount Florist Ltd. on St. Catherine Street, just down the street from the renowned Montreal Forum.

Moving to Victoria Village

In 1976, Westmount Florist moved to its present location on Victoria Avenue in the heart of Westmount’s “Victoria Village”.

A growing success

Westmount Florist has been growing ever since – with a second location opening in Pointe-Claire in 1981.

Over 60 years of passion and dedication

George Pickrell was a man of values. He believed in hard work, honesty, treating people with respect, and loving what you do. These same values now guide the second and third generations of Pickrells, who today run Westmount Florist with the same passion and dedication.
