In 1968 Don Goede, Jr. assumed, what he thought would be, an interim position delivering flowers for Scotty’s Flowers and Gifts in the Skyway Plaza Shopping Center at 820 Arcturus Drive, Colorado Springs, CO. When the business became available for sale, Don gained Don Sr. and Gloria Goede’s interest in buying the flower shop. The Goede family assumed ownership and day-to-day operation on December 1, 1970.
From the location in Skyway Plaza, the Goedes moved the business to 1515 South 8th Street and then to 1407 South 8th Street where it resides today. SKYWAY CREATIONS Flower Shop, as it is known today, is a full service floral business with a strong emphasis in wedding and special event services. For many years, Don Sr. and Gloria worked alongside Don, Jr., helping the business grow. As their family grew up, Don Jr.’s wife, Lori involved herself more in the flower business. Today, Lori is an intricate part of the company and a driving force in planning wedding and special events. We have built our successful business with the loyalty of many wonderful customers and the dedication of many great employees
