A commercial building located at 818 Broadway in Cape Girardeau has been sold according to Chris Cole with Lorimont Commercial Real Estate who handled the recent transaction. The building was formerly occupied by Broadway Biergarten. Chaffee, Missouri-based D Duncan Floristry & Boutique has purchased the ornate brick structure with plans for an additional location. The boutique's co-owners, Dustin Duncan and Justin Scheper, plan to remodel the building this spring and open a floral and gift shop there in time for Mother's Day.
Duncan and Scheper opened D Duncan Floristry & Boutique in Chaffee in January 2020 featuring unique floral designs, seasonal apparel, home and seasonal decor, custom gifts, beauty products, gourmet snacks and a signature line of 100% soy candles. Similar products and services will be offered at the Cape Girardeau location. Pending city approval, they also plan to have an interactive floral "bar" design studio, where clients can watch their floral gifts being created while enjoying a glass of wine, beer or a cocktail. DS Land LLC, co-owned by Duncan and Scheper, purchased the building from GGI Resiliency LLC. The transaction was finalized last week according to the Lorimont broker.
