Not Your Ordinary Gift Shop
Tommy Zhang was selling fresh produce on Canal street in New York City once he arrived from China in 1987. It was shortly thereafter he first heard of the growing Chinatown community, now known as Asiatown, in Cleveland, Ohio. Zhang left New York with his family to join the
Cleveland community and open Flower City Gift Shop in 1994.
Today, Tommy’s son, Danny Zhang has boasts a modern quality boutique version of an Asian gift shop in Flower City Gift Shop’s current iteration.
With a commitment to seeking out and featuring the works of artists and artisans from around the world, Flower City offers selections of incense, jewelry, glassware, knives, clothing, tea sets, and a custom line of Flower City money cat statues.
Deeply influenced by the Chinese gift shops on Canal street in Manhattan, as well as the deep underground culture of his world travels, punk, hip-hop and skateboarding roots, Danny stocks the store full of accoutrements you would not only expect to find in an Asian gift store, but also modern and high-end offerings for the next generation.
The store also doubles as a showcase for the largest, hand curated collection of glass pipes, rigs, vaporizers and other smoking accessories in the area.
Now offering a dynamic retail environment, Flower City offers one-on-one assistance and superb customer service with every order. Needless to say, Danny insists on the highest of standards for excellence.
