A new business has opened on Center Street. Just Because is located on Center and Weil in the space that was formerly a pet store. Nicole and John Brown have leased the building for two years, and they recently decided to open it as a balloon and flower shop. “Since there was only one flower shop in the area, we thought it would be good to give people another option,” Brown says. “Our goal is to offer good quality at very affordable prices.” Just Because offers fresh and silk flower arrangements, stuffed animals, greeting cards, gift baskets, and more. Just Because, 1000 E. Center St., is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Sunday, with hours subject to change. For more information, call 374-0099.
