Presley’s Flowers moves, gets new ownership

Presley’s Flowers has moved to Cliff Gookin Boulevard.

The store opened in 2010 in downtown Tupelo with Roman Milburn as the owner. Click here to see our pictures from when the store opened.

He later moved the store to West Main Street (previous coverage) by Village Green.

An employee told us this week that Linda Dollins is the new owner of the business, as of Jan. 8. She moved the business last month to Cliff Gookin. It’s in the shopping center with the Asian restaurant.

Thanks to @Tupelo_Guy for the tip!
