About the Company
The Nance family has played an active role in the Southern Indiana and Louisville florist scene for almost 100 years. Still currently family owned and operated, Nance Floral Shoppe continues to provide exquisite floral arrangements for any occasion, and also has expanded our products and services to better serve our customers. Generations of the Nance family have contributed to the floral business throughout the years, making it a family affair in many regards.
Our story began with George Nance Sr. in 1919. He purchased greenhouses in Clarksville, IN, from which he would sell flowers and plants that he grew. At the time, flowers were mostly used for expressions of sympathy and often were considered a status symbol. Due to the harsh economic times of the Great Depression and because flowers were a luxury product, the greenhouses were unfortunately lost in 1929.
At the end of World War II, George Nance Jr. followed in his father’s footsteps and opened a floral shop at the corner of Tenth and Main Streets in downtown New Albany, IN. By this time, it was rare for florists to grow their own flowers and George Jr. decided to create more of a retail environment, selling more than just sympathy arrangements. He had a talent for designing unique and creative arrangements for any special occasion and offered gifts in the store to accompany them. Nance Floral Shoppe moved to its current location, at the corner of Seventh and Spring Streets in New Albany, IN, in 1961.
George Jr.’s son, Steve Nance, took over ownership of the shop in the mid-1970s and expanded our reach in the early 1990s to a second location on Charlestown Road in New Albany, IN. Steve, along with his sister, Carol and son Brian, currently operate the business together, each contributing their talents in many different ways, to keep Nance Floral Shoppe flourishing year after year.
In 2015, Brian Nance started an events and rentals branch of the business to complement our current floral and gift product offerings. Under the name Nance’s Events, we now offer event rentals, such as tables, chairs and linens, as well as arrangements and design services for any event. This has been an exciting addition to the family business and compliments it beautifully.
We continue to work diligently everyday to ensure that we deliver only the best products and services that fulfill the needs of each and every person. Customer service and creative arrangements have been instilled in each of us, and we hope that every customer to leaves satisfied. Flowers and gifts are more than just simple purchases -- they are expressions of love and gratitude. Therefore, we like to consider ourselves not only in the floral business, but also in the business of happiness.
From our family to yours, thank you for your business

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
