& Kim Grassi began their own business in Tacoma in the manner of a
continuing family tradition. Ken's family had owned a grocery store at
S. 17th & Cushman for many years. At that time the Hilltop area was
primarily an old Italian neighborhood. Kim's parents were involved in
running a jewelry business in downtown Seattle. Ken's initial business
venture started in 1976, with a small plant store in Fircrest. Within a
few years this storefront had met with such success that it outgrew
this location, and it was time for expansion. In 1979, Tacoma's
landmark gift and full-service florist shop, Grassi's, opened on the
corner of Center and Union. Grassi's at Center & Union is noted for
their dramatic window displays, and dazzling flower artistry. These
attractions draw people from throughout the Northwest to see the
gorgeous gift and flower combinations. Also featured at this location
is an extensive European-style Cut Flower Market, and hundreds of
expressive cards to choose from. Other specialties include
one-of-a-kind silk and dried flower arrangements, beautiful and unique
gift specialties, distinctive lamps and wall art,and gardening gifts.
Easy return privileges, liberal layaway, and on-approval arrangements
will insure your gift-giving satisfaction. All purchases can be
delivered by Grassi's professional staff on request. You are welcomed
to stop in and see the artistic expression that has captured the hearts
of young and old alike.
