Passionate by flowers for 50 years!

À la Boite à Fleurs is a boutique in Laval that was founded in 1966 by Denise Locas, a forwarded-thinking woman who wanted to finance her children studies. This woman with an extraordinary talent and a steely determination was able to run the business for nearly 30 years, and then moved the guides to her daughter Francine Locas-Joly in 1995.

Very young self-taught, Francine enjoys to learn and discover her flowers passion to people around her. For years she teaches, gives lectures and workshops.

From 1999 to 2005, she was a columnist in floral art at LES SAISONS DE CLODINE. In 2003, she published the first issue of a magazine titled “Fleurs Déco : une première au Québec!”. This magazine has over 30 projects to be implemented, practical advices, ideas and a list of supplies to perform. In 2005, the second number appeared.

Relax and stay abreast

Francine loves relax and stays abreast of all that is trendy in the industry. Every year, she discovers a new country where she finds ideas that she takes pleasure to share with you.

Like her mother did, Francine has sent to her daughter Stéphanie Joly genes of love and passion for flowers. Even higher, even further, Stéphanie has lots of projects in mind. Graduated in presentation design and holding a Bacchelor degree in Management (Marketing concentration and Entrepreneurship) from McGill University, Stéphanie has now all the tools and experience required to ensure the continuity of the family business.

It is in autumn 2010 that Marie-Ève Joly, Francine’s oldest daughter, joined the company. Graduated of the Institut du tourisme et de l’hôtellerie du Québec and director of the renowned dining restaurant Les Menus Plaisirs in Ste-Rose for nearly 10 years, she won the 2010 Grand Prix du Tourisme du Québec, Lauréat Or, tourism supervisor category.
