About The Company


About The Glidden Campus Florist 

The Glidden Campus Florist is a family owned and operated business. We have been part of the Northern Illinois University / DeKalb / Sycamore area since 1936. Our professional staff is dedicated to providing exceptional service. They are very friendly and knowledgeable.



The business waThe Glidden Campus Florist in DeKalbs started in 1936 by Mabel Glidden from the humble beginnings of a flower cart filled with fresh cut flowers from her garden. As times fared better, the business moved into the original Glidden Homestead (now under historical preservation). As the business expanded, the Glidden family began adding greenhouses and a flower shop. Growth was steady, and in 1962 Wenke Hansen, a native of Norway, started working for the Glidden family. She developed a reputation for her European quality of design in fresh flowers and home decor. The business continued to grow in size and volume while retaining the objective of providing the highest quality in flowers and service. In 1978, the Hansen family purchased the business, and the final addition was added to the store: a beautiful room featuring a 30-ft gabled ceiling. In 2014 the business added a new twist: Glidden Goods, a gift store that features the work of local artists, "American Made" items and fair trade gifts. 




People now love to stop at The Glidden Campus Florist just to let the beauty of the season, the smell of the flowers, the plants, and the displays put them in a good mood. We have had the good fortune to serve our community for over 8 decades. Please drop in, or call us today.

Substitution Policy

Occasionally, substitutions may be necessary to create your bouquet due to the availability of certain flowers in various parts of the country. Care is taken to maintain the style, theme and color scheme of the arrangement, using flowers of equal value. Additionally, the substitution of certain keepsake items may be necessary due to increased demand, especially during major holidays. In single-flower arrangements, such as an all rose bouquet, or orchids, we will make every attempt to match the flower type, but may substitute with another color.
