WEST FARGO — A new plant shop is hoping to sprout in West Fargo.
Pansy Plants founder Scott Brezina is currently raising capital to fund the venture, which he is hoping to open in the Pioneer Place mixed-use building along Sheyenne Street in the city’s downtown.
While the timeline for the store’s opening is yet to be finalized, Brezina hopes to open this year. The budding entrepreneur said opening a shop dedicated to all things houseplants has long been a dream of his. He credited longtime friend Katie Krumwiede, owner of Cookie Krums, for helping him find the location in the Pioneer Place.
Having made a career in retail, Brezina added that the COVID-19 pandemic afforded him extra time to contemplate his goal. “Especially over COVID, everyone kind of had a lot of time to think about what they really wanted to do and what they really love,” Brezina explained
