Millard Florist Co-Business of the Month

    Phyllis and Mike Dour, owners of Millard Florist, have been chosen September 2015 Beardstown Chamber of Commerce Co-Business of the Month.
    The Dours have owned and operated Millard Florist for the last 19 years. However, the business has been a tradition in the Beardstown Area since 1930. 11 years ago the business was moved to its uptown location at 110 West 2nd Street on the Square. Millard’s is a full service floral shop for all occasions. Phyllis repurposes items at the shop also.
    The façade of the shop has recently been renovated. Mike and Phyllis wanted to “keep the building as close to original as possible, while updating the awning and windows for economical, as well as, aesthetic purposes.” Millard’s has no employees at this time, but they do have one delivery driver, Glenn Miller - Phyllis’s dad. Their hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. on Saturdays. The phone number is 323-1855.
