Sarah Turk is a familiar face at Oregon Floral after managing there for three years.
So it wasn’t any surprise for customers coming in to buy Valentine’s Day flowers to see her there these past couple of weeks. But now, Turk not only manages the store, she owns it.
Turk, whose legal last name is Lopez but is known as a “Turk sister” from her maiden name, had originally begun working there about three years ago, when former owner Pam Raschein asked her to manage the shop.
At the time, Finke was working in an office job while also running a wedding floral business out of her home.
But Raschein, who was also a realtor in the area, was busy and needed help.
Since then, Turk has developed a rapport with plenty of customers, and when Raschein wanted to sell, Turk eventually was excited to buy.
“I’ve been pretty much the face of Oregon floral for the past three years,” Turk said.
