Get to Know…AY’s Best of 2020: Tipton & Hurst
Winner, Best Florist
Since 1886, Tipton & Hurst has been committed to fulfilling its promise of “guaranteed satisfaction” with every flower, plant, event and gift it delivers. Consistently voted Arkansas’ Best Florist, this family owned and operated business has blossomed from a floral shop in downtown Little Rock to a full-scale, specialty retailer with five Central Arkansas locations.
Under the innovative leadership of president and CEO Howard Hurst, Tipton & Hurst has developed a thriving e-commerce platform, tiptonhurst.com, with gift and bridal registries. Both in-store and online, customers are now able to shop the latest in floral design, plants, gifts and décor — all curated by Tipton & Hurst’s expert team — and choose from the largest inventory of fresh flowers anywhere in the state.
Each year, Tipton & Hurst’s award-winning events team, led by lead designer and vice president Chris Norwood, AIFD, combines its unique artistry, personalized service and the highest-quality products possible to bring its clients’ visions to life. An avid supporter of the communities it serves, it is also proud to play a key role in hundreds of nonprofit events. In fact, it provides more than $100,000 in goods and services annually — making it one of Arkansas’ most charitable givers.
At Tipton & Hurst, customers will find more than just flowers. With its unparalleled products and services, it’s no wonder this Arkansas business has been recognized as one of the best — and most trusted — retailers in the state for nearly 135 years.
