For 102 Years and 3 Generations Potratz has been a Family owned and operated business. Potratz has been a tradition in the Erie region since 1919. Herman and Elizabeth Potratz started the business with the goal of service and satisfaction to customers. They began by selling cut flowers as well as flowering and vegetable plants. Gradually, the business evolved into a florist and greenhouse production. In 1982, a fire devastated the floral shop only a few days before Christmas. However, the shop was rebuilt (quadrupling in size), remodeled, and business prospered; thanks to our loyal customers.
