R&S Floral began in 1958, when Russell Schweke opened a floral wholesale warehouse after running three dry goods stores. The concept for R&S Memorial arose when Mr. Schweke believed he could make Easter baskets and Memorial Day arrangements to sell in his stores. He rented a 1,100 square foot building at St. Louis and Glenstone and would deliver his arrangements on a daily basis. Mr. Schweke's son, John started working for his father as soon as he was old enough to drive. After Mr. Schweke retired in 2006, John took over operations of R&S Memorial and focused the business solely on Memorial Day decorations and arrangements.
Today, John & Alexa Schweke operate R&S Memorial Decorations out of a 19,000 square foot warehouse, about 4 1/2 miles west of the airport turnoff in Springfield on historic Route 66. As time goes on, they have developed a deep appreciation for this property and have made it their mission to preserve and protect it's history. The warehouse functions year round and is fully stocked with floral arrangements for retail purchase and wholesale delivery, or stored for delivery to seasonal stores throughout communities in Southwest Missouri, Northwest Arkansas and Southeast Kansas. R&S Memorial Decorations is proud to serve their customers and communities year after year and strives to create beautiful arrangements and lasting traditions.
