Hours of Operation:  Monday-Friday 9-6

Specialize in: Flower arrangements for weddings, parties and other special occasions.

Founded: 1980 original location at Chester Pike and MacDade Boulevard. September 2003 at current location.

Founders: Steve and Marie Condon

A brief history: When Steve and Marie started the floral shop in 1980, there wasn't any floral shops on the south side of Collingdale. It was Steve's vision to fill that need that motivated the decision to open at the orginal location. Once open, it was both Steve's and Marie's efforts that drove their success in providing beauty to the community and serving the community. The decision to move their store further up MacDade Boulevard came with much deliberation as they served at their original location for twenty three years. It proved to be a good move for them, especially when the only remaining flower shop in Collingdale closed its doors in 2011.

Today the owners still enjoy working with flowers, especially wedding bouquets which are their specialty. For more information or to place an order,  visit...:Condon's Flower Cart

Church-Collingdale Church of Christ

Location: 519 Clifton Avenue

Meeting times: Sunday 11 am
Morning service
6 pm  Evening service
Wednesday 7:30 pm Bible study

Denomination: Protestant

Mission statement: To preserve one faith as taught by the Apostles.

A brief history: This is a new church, having held its first services here in late April 2013. On its newly created website Collingdale Church of Christ identity, it clearly states that it doesn't consider itself a denomination with its strict rules and regulations. Instead the congregation strictly adheres to the Word of God as its guidebook with personal interpretation of its passages forbidden. As a new church trying to fit into a community with a number of churches, it is struggling with being relevant while preaching the Word to a lost generation.

It is however a welcome addition to the community and has brought the soul back to the formerly abandoned First Lutheran Church.

Updated: Collingdale Church of Christ closed April 2015. Building vacant May 2016 and on the market.....

Update Two: Building Church: Deliverance Tabernacle Worship Center....Started May 2017
