LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — When Liana Labrador found out her flower shop, “All in Bloom, ” had to close for 30 days per Governor Sisolak’s order to temporarily stop all non-essential business in Nevada for 30 days, she wasn’t sure if her business would survive. They’ve been open less than a year and a half.

“As a new business, can we do that? Can we survive that? But all you can do is take one day at a time,” she said.

A fellow flower shop, Greenfield and Company, had a surplus of flowers when the news hit, so rather than let them die and throw them away, she offered to take the flowers and do an act of kindness. She and a handful of volunteers have made them into bouquets and are delivering them to hospital staff and firefighters to thank them for their life-saving efforts during the time of coronavirus.

“The look on the workers faces when we were at Summerlin hospital last night, it was priceless. They’re like ‘we had such a hard day’ and I wish we would’ve had more,” she said.

While she doesn’t know what will happen to her own business, she said if they don’t last, at least they’re going down on a positive note.

“If we make it through, great. I’m looking forward to years to come here in this community. If we don’t, what better way to go. You’re going to make me cry… I just hope if we’re not around people will remember,” she said.
