"We're proud to have helped our community express caring thoughts for 30 years" say Linda & Melanie when they celebrated 30 years of business in 2007. Linda Seefeldt and Melanie Smith have been partners in the Clark Flower & Gift Shop since they opened in September of 1977. We opened our buisness selling fresh flowers & plants, and in 1979, we moved to our current location, just north of Highway 212 that goes through Clark SD. Over the years, we have added giftware, dinnerware, Black Hills Gold Jewelry, and greeting cards to the mix of products that we sell. A Bridal Registry was started in 1982, and in 1985, we received the Bronze Promotion Award from Gifts & Decorative Accessories magazine for the promotions done in our bridal department in 1984. In 1986, we added some South Dakota products to our inventory for Christmas, and in 1987, we trademarked the name "Dakota Care Packages" for our gift assortments of South Dakota products. In 1988, we received the Bronze Promotion Award from Gifts & Decorative Accessories magazine for our Dakota Care Package promotions. We ship our Dakota Care Packages across the United States and to many other countries. We have added many new South Dakota products over the years, and ship our packages year round.
