Longtime Sioux Falls florists to retire

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KSFY) - Two longtime Sioux Falls florists have decided they will soon retire from the family business.

After 45 years in the industry, brother-sister duo Pat and Jean Gustaf will close the doors of Gustaf's Greenery for the final time on Dec. 27.

"I’m thrilled for my dad and aunt, and they will finally be getting the rest that they deserve," Pat's daughter Karlee Gustaf Bathke posted on Facebook. "They have poured everything they have into this business, and we (our whole family) are so grateful to all of you for allowing us to be a part of your special events."

The Gustaf's have been well-known and well-liked in the community for decades, and Pat was a regular on KSFY Morning News for years.
