Black-Eyed Susan’s Florist
Rt 9 & Seneca Blvd.
Lakeside Square,
Barnegat, NJ 08005

Local Florist offers same high quality for nearly 30 years!

We have been in bloom since 1989

Black-Eyed Susan's Florist in Barnegat first opened it's doors when George HW Bush was inaugurated, the "Batman" movie premiered and a 6.9 earthquake canceled game 3 of the World Series in San Fransico.
With small businesses struggling to stay afloat in today's economy and having to hold on to their share of the market for dear life, Black-Eyed Susan's owner, Susan Lockner, is thrilled to be, not only still standing, but thriving!  "We do what we do best:  design flowers and personally deliver them, many times within a certain time frame, to 90% of Ocean County.  We have seen other businesses branch out into something other than their original service/product and it drags them down".  We don't sell sandwiches, food, gas or newspapers - we sell flowers.  And by honing that art the past 30 years, we are blessed to receive daily compliments from our wonderful customers and high quality awards from the giants in the industry like Teleflora, FTD & 1800 flowers.  One of the most sincerest forms of flattery is to be recommended by our customers or a recipient calls who just received an arrangement to say how beautiful it is.

  "The men and women who work with us at BES (Black-Eyed Susan's) are the 'BES-T' in the business.  We all have worked hard since day 1 to offer the best product and services available and to make the shopping experience with us fun & light, our customers have become good neighbors and friends".  So many love to joke around with our name - "who has the black eye?" "where's the black eyed Susan?"  One of the employees will first say Black-Eyed Susan is the name of a flower, then point to me and say "here she is!"  "We have a real live (Black eyed) Susan who has dark brown eyes!".  "We've been having fun with that since day 1 too!"

Susan said, "My grandfather raised our mom and her brothers and sister owning a florist in Jersey City in the 1930's and 40's.  Our mother and mentor, Josephine, taught us all we needed to know about the creative side of this business and our father Pete taught us the business end.  The way our grandfather did things so long ago, like decorating the easel where a funeral spray hung, aren't the norm now.  Funerals are not how they were back then either.  Instead of in a person's home, viewings today are held in funeral homes, at the grave site or in a church.  Where ever the service is, flowers are still an integral part of a funeral. 

We are located on Route 9 at Seneca Blvd. exactly on the township line between Barnegat and Waretown, "giving us the best of both world's!"  "We do work for both police departments, both town halls and all the schools in the local communities.  By the same token, Black-Eyed Susan's Florist has been supporting the churches, schools, PTAs, Band parents' groups, police depts, businesses, charity organizations, veterans' organizations, home owner associations and more in the area for 30 years". 

Says Susan, "One of our proudest accomplishments is to establish a scholarship fund, awarded annually to both a Barnegat High School student and a Southern Regional High School student".  Black-Eyed Susan's Florist was the first business to offer a scholarship in Barnegat High School.  "I hope other businesses take our cue, it's very rewarding", says Susan. "Being a small business in this area for 30 years, being part of the fabric and witnessing the changes is an honor.  We are very grateful!  For 30 years we love what we do and it shows!"

Black-Eyed Susan's Florist is located on Route 9 and Seneca Blvd., in Lakeside Square, on the Barnegat/Waretown border.  609-698-3100
