Petal Pusher: McNamara Florist is Homegrown

I defy you to walk into a McNamara florist shop and not come away feeling better. The combination of incredible smells, vibrant colors, and the presence of the miracle of living things is an instant mood enhancer. It is compounded by the fact that McNamara goes all out in its arrangements and decorations, especially during the holidays.

The pyramid style, Asian-themed building along 116th Street, just west of Keystone Avenue, is now home to a full-service wellness center—the Winslow Facial Plastic Surgery and Fusion Spa. During their four years in their previous location at 755 West Carmel Drive, Dr. Catherine Winslow and her staff began running out of room and were literally “stepping over each other the last two years!” While researching options for additional space, Winslow soon realized there was a need for a one-stop spot where customers could get everything they need under one roof. ...
