Congratulations to our very own Cathy Hock on her most recent award from The Rotary Club of Merrimack for Excellence in the Workplace. We are so proud of her and she most definitely deserves it.
The theme was for a romantic anniversary centerpiece.
Cathy came up with a design using two champagne glasses, one with a rhinestone bracelet signifying the woman and one with crystals in it to represent the man, then united them with flowers.
Teleflora received entries from across the country and chose the top 10 designs. The arrangements were then voted on by flower shops nationwide.
Cathy Hock is licensed and is a New Hampshire master floral designer who has won several local awards.
The Merrimack Flower Shop has been a family-owned business since 1969.

As with almost every thriving business, exceptional service is vital to creating opportunities for repeat sales. “Customers are very loyal to us,” says Cathy Hock, NHMFD, who with her husband Dan owns Merrimack Flower Shop & Greenhouse. “We have people who come in and say that our shop did their wedding 40 years ago,” adds Dan, underscoring the shop’s commitment to superior service among generations of customers.
Located in Merrimack, New Hampshire, the shop has been family owned and operated since 1969 and has been a Napco customer for approximately 12 years. “My parents started the business,” states Dan. “My father ran it for several years by himself, and my mother—who worked at an insurance company - would come in on her lunch breaks to keep the store open while my father went out and did deliveries.”
