Business Description

Creative Expressions & Gifts is a full service florist and gift shop that specializes in personalized gifts for all occasions.

How does your business make a positive impact on the community?

We have participated the past six years in career day at several schools. We have been a business partner with Elloree Elementary School for six years and donate gift items as requested. We volunteer our services to the S.A.F.E. Organization, which serves at-risk youth ages thirteen to seventeen. We have donated personalized gifts to the Men Against Cancer organization, the local fire department, cancer awareness at our local center as well as many local churches. We have donated gift baskets & prizes to our local University. We have participated in National Night Out sponsored by our local County Sheriff Office for the last 4 years. Recently we donated our services to the Community Career Development Center Cosmetology Department.

What would you do with a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, training, and help from a SCORE mentor to grow your business?

With a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, we would expand our product line by purchasing a needed laptop to help with designing personalized products, purchase products to make more gift baskets and restock inventory. Training from a SCORE mentor will help our business to grow by providing us with the resources needed to learn marketing strategies. Our business is located in a rural area and our products are great, however, a lot of people still don’t know that the business exist. We have never had a mentor and we know that SCORE mentors are very knowledgeable and can provide the boost that can take our business to another level. We are willing to learn everything to expand our business and provide a needed service to our community.
