Locker’s Florist has been a southeastern Wisconsin staple for over 100 years. The floral design shop specializes in eye-catching designs for all occasions. Recently, Locker’s even took home the people’s choice award three of four days at the Milwaukee Art Museum’s Art in Bloom show.

Kimberlee Grob, a floral designer for nearly three decades, bought Locker’s in 2018, expanding its clientele to major corporations as well as the many individuals it serves. “We’re trusted when someone just needs a small and personal arrangement, and we’re trusted when someone needs big and professional florals for a major event,” Grob says. “We’re really proud of that range and the reputation we’ve built here.”

Grob offers fresh flowers in a constantly rotating variety, including a “designer’s choice” every day. She runs the business with the help of Robert Sinkey, who quit his previous job to work at Locker’s with his partner Grob.

“The special ingredient is our warmth and creativity,” Grob says. “Our clients describe us as kind and trustworthy. We want to help them convey their messages through flowers in an easy, thoughtful way. Flowers are a form of communication, and as interpreters of that language, we feel honored to translate those emotions that are so hard to use words to say.”
