Specializing in the timeless gift of flowers, Wood’s Flowers and Gifts has been a staple of College Park for over three generations. This family business opened in 1938, when two students at the University of Maryland decided to open a full-service flower shop in order to pay for school. Over 80 years later, the shop remains in its original spot at 9223 Baltimore Avenue, now owned by second and third-generation family, who sell flowers to customers all over the world. The business provides beautiful floral arrangements for any occasion, whether you’re searching for a bouquet for a loved one or planning an entire event.
In addition to traditional arrangements, the shop features green plants, balloons, cards, stuffed animals, beaded jewelry, and other festive decorations for the season. Customers can order custom arrangements online, or they can purchase beautiful pre-made bouquets in-store.
As a local shop, Wood’s Flowers and Gifts is ideal for buying flowers; it will not charge extra service fees that often come with ordering from larger flower businesses. They provide local delivery throughout College Park and surrounding communities for a fee between $10.95-$14.95, and same-day deliveries are often available for smaller orders. They also make deliveries throughout the United States and internationally, for an additional charge.
Between September and May, the shop is open from 9:00am to 6:00pm on Mondays through Saturdays. Between the holidays of Memorial Day and Labor Day, the shop has slightly shorter hours, closing at 4:00pm. If you are interested in making an order for Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Mother’s Day, make sure to do so in advance, as customers are these are the busiest occasions at Wood’s Flowers and Gifts. On the actual days of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day, Easter, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day, the shop is closed.
