Central Square Florist was first established in 1929 in Cambridge, Ma. In the 1940s, Morris Gamer, purchased the flower shop. His nephew and present owner of the business, Myron Levine, began working there while he attended Boston English High School in 1952. During his college years at Northeastern University he continued to work weekends at the flower shop.
In the early 1960s, Myron Levine purchased the busines and in 1982 his wife Sandra joined the business. Their son, and 3rd generation family member, David Levine, is now in charge of the day-to-day operations of the flower shop. He is supported by a staff of floral designers, customer service representatives and delivery drivers. His first exposure to the flower business was at 12 years old when he would help out by sweeping and ringing up sales on the cash register. While attending college, he also worked with his parents.
In 1986, David Levine graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from Northeastern University and fully joined the family business.
Central Square Florist is a member of Cambridge Local first. and the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce and has served on the Board of Directors of The Central Square Business Association for over 20 years.
Recently, David's daughters Jackie and Michelle Levine (4th generation), have helped out in the florist shop.
