Karin’s Florist Celebrates 65 Years of Flowers Worth Remembering
Karin’s Florist was established on October 26, 1956, at 7 Corners Shopping Center, by Bill Dukas and his father-in-law, George Raptis. It was one of the original stores in 7 Corners Mall, which was one of the first regional shopping malls in the U.S. Named after Bill’s first born child and George’s first grandchild, the business opened with only four employees, George & Mary Raptis, Bill Dukas and one driver. Karin’s continued to grow over the years, still preserving its family atmosphere.
In 1995, after 38 years, Karin’s relocated to its present location in Vienna, Virginia. At this point, Bill’s daughter, Maris Angolia, joined the business and now serves as its President and CEO.
The physical size of the store has more than doubled, but most importantly, Karin’s Florist has consistently made outstanding customer service our top priority.
We are the proud recipients of several awards, including Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Award for small business, VaseOff! All Stars Challenge, Best of Fairfax, Best Florist in Northern Virginia, and Wedding Wire Couples Choice Award, and Steve Harvey named us the Best Florist in America.
We attribute that success to our award winning designers, the uniqueness of the store, our personnel, the premium quality flowers and gifts, and our loyal customers. Our professional designers can take a customer’s vision and make it come to life. We have a great team, always striving to make sure that we not only meet but exceed our customer’s expectations.
A lot has changed through the years, but one thing has remained the same: Karin’s has kept its roots in Fairfax County, proudly serving the neighborhood it holds dear.
Karin’s Florist is actively involved in the community and participates in many organizations. They are proud members of the Vienna Business Association and Leadership Fairfax.
Maris Angolia, President, currently serves on the Inova Foundation Board. Mrs. Angolia has also served on the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts Associates Board and the 2015 World Police and Fire Games Board of Directors as well as the Inova Gala Executive Committee. Maris Angolia is a 2018 Washington Business Journal Women Who Means Business honoree and she was the 2018 Profiles in Success Award winner.
Karin’s Gives Back is a charitable donation program that supports and promotes the good work of Northern Virginia, Washington DC and Maryland based charities.
