The original Smiley's was founded in 1948 by Mr. Albert Smiley. With such a cheerful name for himself, he saw it fitting that he give it to his flower business as well. He ran Smiley's until 1979 when The Guido Family took over the shop and made their family name the name of the business. Then one summer day in 2006, the present owner Jackie Scanlon took over and made the shop her own.
While exploring their new building, Jackie found an old set of wooden letters that spelled SMILEY'S. As it turned out, those letters were from the original sign. Wanting to bring back an old familiar name to the Owasco community, she decided to reinstate Smiley's as the name for her business. Those letters are on display today behind the front counter inside the shop.
Since Jackie stepped into the shop in 2006, Smiley's has indeed reconnected to the community by getting involved and getting to know each and every customer that we serve.
