Member Spotlight – Barbara Bertran
POSTED February 24, 2017 | Articles | Member Spotlight
Four Seasons Flowers was started in September 1974 in Poway by my mother, Barbara Bertran, in a warehouse our family owned. The first two years were strictly selling house plants, pottery, macramé and assorted items related to house plants.
Our business grew and 11 years later we opened our Penasquitos location. We had 2 beautiful flower shops across the freeway from each other. Through many changes, both encouraging and trying, in 2009 we decided to consolidate the 2 stores into one. We currently have a busy flower shop that services the greater San Diego area all from our Penasquitos location in the Vons shopping center.
We continue to be a family owned and operated flower shop. In January of 2001 Barbara sold the flower shop to my husband, David and me. We have been very fortunate in the caliber of people who have been and are employed at Four Seasons Flowers. We have an excellent reputation that has allowed us to expand our business. This was accomplished by giving excellent service and by considering the customer as the very most important part of our business.
Through the years we have had the opportunity to create many floral pieces for everyday needs, funerals, parties, prom and weddings. Through this process we have become experts at floral creations for all our customer’s needs. Recently, we became winners of the 2013 “Best Flowers” and 2014 “Best Wedding Flowers” award by San Diego A-List.
We have a motto and we all believe in it: “We care as much as you do!”
