Holocaust Remembrance Day
Established by Congress, Holocaust Remembrance Day is the United States annual commemoration of the victims of the Holocaust. This year the day falls on April 21st. The actual Hebrew name for the day is Yom Hashoah.
Between 1941 and 1945 during which the German invasion of the Soviet Union and the end of the war in Europe in May 1945 occurred, Nazi Germany and their collaborators ordered the murder of approximately six million Jewish people. This systematic killing was devised to eliminate every person of Jewish faith imprisoned by them.
Many historians consider the start of the Holocaust era to be 1933. It was during this time, in January of 1933, that Hitler started his rise to power. Nazi persecution of the Jews became a main theme of the Hitler regime. No other group was targeted for complete annihilation like the Jewish people were.
In the English speaking world since 1960, the term Holocaust is the most widely used named for this horrific tragedy. People of Jewish faith refer to it as Shoah. This is the Hebrew word meaning catastrophe. Shoah refers to the six million Jewish people that were killed.
The Holocaust is a tremendous lesson about how our actions, when confronted with injustice to others, can have a life long effect on the outcome. It is with this spirit that the theme of Holocaust Remembrance Day is “Never Again: What You Do Matters”. Many German citizens disapproved of the events of the Holocaust era. However, very few took any type of action to try and intervene. Perhaps this was out of fear of reprisal. There were some brave citizens that did attempt to make a difference and stop the violence and help to prevent their Jewish neighbors from being stripped of their citizenship and basic human rights.
Flowerama Columbus has experienced and caring floral designers. We would be honored to help find that perfect green plant, flower arrangement or gift basket to send to someone that would be touched by your thoughtfulness on this Holocaust Remembrance Day!

History of Flowerama Columbus
We opened our first location at the corner of Brice and Main Street in Reynoldsburg, Ohio on June 23, 1990. For the first five years of operation we were the highest volume Flowerama store in the country.
On January 27, 1995 we opened our second location at the corner of Broad Street and Hamilton Road in Whitehall. We nearly doubled our sales and tripled our work load.
Only a year and a half after opening our second location, we opened our third location, at the corner of Westerville Road and Schrock Road in Westerville. It was an immediate success and is still one of the top performing stores in the country
In 2002, we launched our website. The first photos were taken outside the Westerville shop. While we were proud of them at the time, we look back and laugh at our early efforts. We still take our own photos, but now they are taken in a home studio. We realize there is room for improvement in our photography skills; however, we are no longer embarrassed to put them on the website.
In 2005, we made a major investment in our computer system. This streamlined our order taking ability. With this new technology, we can access orders taken from any of our four locations. To optimize delivery, orders are directed to the nearest location. We can even send an automatic e-mail confirmation of your completed delivery if you request.
December 16, 2005 the store located at Karl Road and Morse Road opened. With a state of the art walk in and reach in cooler this store continues to be a customer favorite. Located at one of the busiest intersections in Columbus sales continue to grow.
In 2006, we acquired our vanity telephone number 614 BLOOMIN. The telephone number rings into our Reynoldsburg location where your order is processed. We hope this number will be easy to remember and convenient to use.
In 2006, one of the most respected names in the floral industry, Virgil Alwood Florist, chose to merge their customer data base with ours.
In 2008, we introduced the “Non-spill travel box”. We custom designed our non-spill travel box so that the average person, under normal driving conditions, can get their flowers home in one piece. Our box is twice the size of a normal delivery box and stands tall enough to protect the flowers from banging against your car seat during transportation. You can’t get this box anywhere else in Columbus, and it is free with most flower deliveries.
In 2010, we introduced “In driveway delivery confirmation.”Once your delivery arrives at its location our drivers do the unthinkable; they actually call you. We call it “In driveway delivery confirmation”, and we are the only florist in Columbus that provides this service. That’s right our drivers will call you from the driveway to let you know that your gift has arrived safely to its destination.
Spring of 2013 Cheryl’s Cookies and Flowerama Columbus teamed up to offer Cheryl’s cookie delivery anywhere in Columbus Ohio. Available for sale and consumption at the Reynoldsburg, Westerville, and Columbus Flowerama locations with the Whitehall Flowerama location coming soon. The perfect marriage of two great companies; our customers now have a choice between the freshest flowers or the freshest cookies and they can all be delivered the same day throughout Columbus.
Perhaps the thing we are most proud of is our people. There are many who have worked for us for more than a decade, and one that has been with us since our first year of operation. The contributions they have made to our success over the years are immeasurable. Our ability to draw some of the most talented, hard working people in the community is one of our greatest assets. We are truly humbled by their efforts.
Floweramacolumbus.com and our four convenient locations offer same day delivery of fresh flowers and roses across town and throughout the United States!
Orders that are placed on line or over the phone will be processed immediately and filled through the local Flowerama store or through the Teleflora network of fine florists.
Please visit us online or by phone during this time. We would be delighted to assist you!
