Florist brings ‘Added Touch’ to DeKalb


Kemper County has a new florist business located in DeKalb Business owner David Traywick said Added Touch Flowers and Gifts shop will be opening soon on Hopper Avenue, next to Commercial Bank.

This is his fifth Added Touch store for Traywick with other locations in Philadelphia, Union, Decatur and Newton. Traywick said DeKalb was a natural location for his business.

“We already have customers here,” Traywick said. “We have been making deliveries over here, two or three times a week. So we decided to put one in.”

It has been nearly a year since DeKalb had a florist. He said the key to running five locations is to hire good employees.

The store will be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. The phone number is 601-743-3992.

“We are thrilled they are here,” said Faye Wilson of the Kemper County Chamber of Commerce. “We have been needing a florist here in Kemper County. We are glad he chose to make us part of his business.”
