BOULDER – Sturtz and Copeland Florist and Greenhouse, which has kept Boulder in bloom since 1929, is moving to a new location as longtime owner Carol Riggs hands over control of the business to a new operator.

“Sturtz has given me and my family a wonderful life filled with beautiful plants and flowers, great customers who have become great friends, and fantastic staff who I have loved knowing and working with over the years. over the years,” said Riggs, who has owned the store since 1976, wrote in an email sent to customers last month. “I realize it’s time for another change, and I’ve decided to sell the business to Sarah Schmitz.”

Schmitz owns the From the Ground Up flower shop in Crested Butte.

“I admire his work ethic and talent,” Riggs’ email said. “She’s a fabulous designer with lots of energy and new ideas. More importantly, she’s a good, caring person who will carry on the Sturtz and Copeland name in a way that should make us all happy with the new environment that she is delighted to create.

Under Schmitz’s ownership, Sturtz and Copeland move to 3550 Arapahoe Ave. next month.

It’s the space once occupied by furniture seller and consignment store No Place Like Home, which closed late last year after around four decades in business.

2851 Valmont Ave. of Sturtz and Copeland will be taken over by Jeremy Friedman of Brown’s Greenhouses, according to Riggs.

“He will bring with him the annuals, perennials, sprouts, herbs and hanging baskets we have all come to love,” she wrote.

Riggs began working at Sturtz and Copeland part-time in the 1960s while working on her bachelor’s degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

More than half a century later, she was inducted into the Boulder County Business Hall of Fame in 2020.
