We started getting reports on Friday that 1-800-Flowers was closing on Hanover Street in Boston’s North End. Stopping in over the weekend, there was little inventory left in the store as it was being cleared out.
A man working in the store confirmed it was closing and said the franchise had been ‘mis-managed for months.’ He did not know what would replace the flower shop located at the corner of Fleet Street on the Freedom Trail. Some might remember Circle Pizza that once operated in the space.
The store was featured in a 2010 TV series of Undercover Boss where it was identified as the highest grossing franchise shop for the company.
