Local Florists are the Trusted and Knowledgeable Experts on Local Floral Products and Traditions in Each Area

There are literally thousands of websites where you can order flowers, but many of them are not run by someone who actually delivers flowers to the consumer.  They may just gather your order and charge an additional service fee before forwarding your order to a real local florist to fill.  Many of these sites also use deceptive advertising practices, making you think that you are dealing with an actual local florist, some even listing (but not linking to) the names of local florists.  If there is no address listed or no local phone number listed, bewareThe lack of an actual photo of the shop and a map to the location is another dead giveaway.  Their intent is obvious, they want you to think they are a florist in the town you want flowers delivered to.  They take their profit and just send the order along to a "real florist" at reduced value to the florist and the customer.  The same is true for "Yellow Page" advertising, many of the largest ads are for businesses with no local store front, they are just gathering your order (for a fee) and passing it on to a real local florist.

There are many advantages to using a real local florist.  They know which products are the freshest, the prettiest and available.  There is no middle man to keep part of your purchase price, so you get better value for your money.  And, most importantly, using a quality local florist is the best way to assure freshness, prompt delivery and satisfaction. 

Should You Ever Use a Local Florist for an Out-of-town Delivery?

YES! There are reasons to have your local florist send flowers to an out of town destination?  Definitely!  If you already have a relationship with a florist and they have provided you with great local service, they will provide you with great out of town service.  We know who the best florists are, we know who to avoid. We guarantee your satisfaction whether we deliver the product, or forward the order to another trusted florist.  And, most importantly, we advertise who we really are.  When you go to our websites you can tell exactly where we’re located, exactly what towns we deliver to, and exactly what you’ll receive for your money.
