About The Company

5th Street Florist has been a downtown Courtenay business for over 75 years. I, Ariana Bifano, have owned and ran this shop for the past four years, and worked here for 8 years prior to that. I have put together a great team and work on purchasing as much local product as possible. Eight months of the year I’m able to purchase from four local flower farms right here in the Comox Valley. I also work year round with a grower in Victoria and a supplier in Vancouver. This means that the families who grow the flowers we love can support their families and their love of flowers. This also means that they aren’t subject to any pesticides or labour laws that we don’t agree with. BC grown means we are all working towards the same environmental and economical goals.

My lead designer is Deb Etherington. She is well known in the floral community; Deb has been a florist for over 40 years. She has ran her own shop, worked on cruise ships and yes, she’s made flowers for the Queen... And not just the the Cumberland May Queen. She knows traditional and contemporary design and can do everything in between. We are lucky to call her ours.

2020 Winner Best Flower Shop - CV Record

My shop has won the Readers Choice Award for best flower shop in the Comox Valley for 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. We love our downtown community and are very proud to be part of it.
