When Alex Waldbart Florist was voted “Best Florist” by the readers of Riverfront Times in 2013, the magazine said Waldbart’s neon sign has been attracting customers since the 1930s; it has hung in its current spot since 1967.
The store is known for its seasonal displays, though now three seasons are featured, including holiday decorations at 30 to 40 percent off.
