History Of Pamís Flower Garden

Pamís Flower Garden was created July 14th, 1962
by John and Mary de Ruiter.


After working many years in Kingston they decided to pursue the flower business. Pamís Flower Garden has always been at its current location at 793 Princess Street. The building was also used as a Beer Store and ice house prior to 1962.

John and Mary have two children. Pam was 2 years old and Jeff was 5 years old at the time of opening the shop. Thus the name Pamís Flower Garden was born. In the early years Mary and John processed the flowers and plants, wrote up the orders from customers and then hand delivered orders to many families in and around Kingston.

The business slowly evolved and grew over the years and many staff members were added to help build the business. Thama Weir, Dorothy Stanley and Ken Butler were some of the 1st staff members at Pamís. The building that houses the flower operations was renovated many times over the years with the addition of a few apartments above the shop and continual renovations on the main retail floor level. Today is a representation of the many years of planning the look you see inside and outside at Pamís. In 2008 Pamís was nominated for the outside renovation in the Livable City Design Awards.

Our commitment to our community is very important and we firmly believe in giving back. Donations to numerous local charities including the United Way, Boys and Girls Club of Kingston, Minor Hockey, Easter Seals, Hospice and to 100ís of other local charities and fund raisers. We have received many letters of thanks, awards for donation participation and business awards including Top 25 Teleflora Florist in Canada and voted #1 Kingston Florist by Kingston This Weeks readers poll for 8 straight years.

Currently Jeff and Pam de Ruiter with a big assist from their other halves Marianne de Ruiter and Don Timmins run the day to day operations. John and Mary have their finger on the pulse at the shop every day and have been wonderful mentors to their children. With a fantastic team of floral designers, sales associates, office personnel, delivery staff and floral assistants we have formed a team that believes in providing interesting design, fresh flowers and plants, a fun and ever changing look inside the shop.

Today Pamís Flower Garden is more than just flowers and plants. New and exciting lines of womanís fashions including clothing, scarves, jewellery, and hand bags have been added to an exciting mix of product.

We want to express our sincere thanks to all of our wonderful staff and many loyal customers who have grown with us over the years. It has been our honour and pleasure to be involved and part of this wonderful community called Kingston.

Sincerely John, Mary, Jeff, Pam, Marianne and Don

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.

Below are emails and letters we received from some of customers:

Thank you very much for the fast and beautiful basket that was delivered to my son & daughter-in-law today. The baby girl basket was prepared beautifully and they received it within a few hours after I had placed the order on-line. I will definitely let everyone know how wonderful your business is. Once again....thank you.

Sincerely,
Susan Nadeau

We would like to thank the florist who worked on the incredibly beautiful floral arrangements for our mother's funeral. They were a lovely tribute to our mother and many people commented on the gorgeous arrangements. Jeff, your help in choosing just the right arrangements and assuring us both that they would be as close to what we saw in the sample pictures made a stressful situation less so.

Thank you
Lucia Murano and Teresa Fiorentino

I cannot thank you enough for ensuring mum and dadís special 60th Anniversary flowers arrived in time and was the centerpiece of their lunch table when they came to sit down. I spoke with mum and dad this morning and daddy told me how beyond awful the weather was, so my sincere gratitude for all that you all at Pamís Flower Garden did to ensure it arrived in time.

Daddy just texted me and he just writes short texts, so I am sure I will hear all the details later tonight.

I emailed a picture to my sister and she was blown away with how beautiful the arrangement and glass cube was; she will see them later tonight so Iím sure she also will be ooooing and ahhhhing J

Again, thank you so much for helping brighten mum and dadís special day.

Warmest and Kindest Regards and be safe tonight in that weather!

Jaynie


I just wanted to let you know that my niece, Maria Schell, was thrilled with her gift basket that I ordered and you delivered earlier today. Jeff was so helpful and his suggestions really fit the requirement.

In these days when you have almost to beg for service in the "big box" stores, it is wonderful to deal with a family business such as yours with such great personal service! your customer service is excellent. Well done and greatly appreciated..

Thanks again and all the best.
-Carol Schell




Pam, Jeff & Family Thank you so much for helping me to make so many people happy at the hockey games. The flowers were always so beautiful and meant so much to so many people.


-Freda Coyle


Thank you so much for all your help last week. My friend Glenda O'Reilly loved the flowers and scarf, and they arrived right on time. Thanks again for taking the time to describe all the different scarves etc. Living in Nova Scotia and being able to find such a helpful store in Kingston was great!

-Candice Dunn


Just wanted to thank you for the beautiful I (rush) ordered today. You guys did a fabulous job, and our recipient was thrilled...it was the first time she had ever received roses.

So thank you again, for a beautiful bouquet!

Kendra


Dear Mr. de Ruiter,

Thank you so much for donating the beautiful floral arrangement for the Donna Goblin Memorial Rose Bowl once again. It was the centre-piece for the entire Highlights Concert last Wednesday. Professor Goblin was delighted to make the presentation to Isabelle Cote who graciously accepted it after her performance.

We enclose with this note a copy of the concert program, and we look forward to your continuing support of the Kiwanis Music Festival.

Martha Clarke
Coordinator, Kingston Kiwanis Music Festival


Hello,
Over the past couple of days I have received gracious and helpful service from two of your employees: Wayne and Don. Wayne was very helpful yesterday when I was choosing a couple of tropical plants and when I returned for another this morning Don was able to help me before Wayne arrived. I found both men to be extremely pleasant and able to make the customer (me!) feel well attended to. Unlike some other establishments, there was no hesitation to help and also no feeling that I was taking up their time.

You are making some lovely changes to your store and with the personnel you have you should continue to thrive.

Good luck with your new endeavor.
Sincerely,
Margaret Bell
