You may all be wondering why I’m posting three links for all of you. Yes, they are our competition only because people let them be. Feel free to take a look at each one & all their negative nightmarish comments from Mother’s Day. You will understand why I’m posting this. The thing that bothers me most is many times these companies will blame the local florists for the unhappy customers of theirs.
THAT IS UPSETTING!
We used to be a filling shop for all three of the big ones until we caught them being very deceitful in ripping off people before sending us the orders that they then ripped us off for. Our good name & reputation meant more to us since we work so hard for each & every one of our customers.
Long story short….we FIRED all of them & people are finally starting to realize why you should shop local, which I’ve been saying that for a very long time without all of these explanations.
HAPPY COMMENT READING!
Teleflora, FTD, 1800Flowers, etc. are all just order takers. They collect your money, excessive fees and then forward what is left to the local florist who is required to fill the order for half of what you paid for it. They don’t even pass on the unbelievable high delivery fees to the florist, they keep it all. GREEDY! Contact your local florist next time and get your order filled for the full value of the money that you paid for it, not half of what you paid for it.
AND…..anytime you google search a florist, you will always see names at the top area. They are ALL deceitful order gatherers (DOGS) that pay millions each holiday to take away from local florists. It’s a big business. There are also listings that look like a flower shop name but again, they bought many domain names to pose as a real florist. If you see a toll free number only & no physical address…you’ve found a DOG! If you ever have an order to send out somewhere far, feel free to contact me, I will give you a phone number of a Real Local Florist. Another way to find one is to type in florist in (town, state) on the facebook search box. There you should be able to find florists listed on fb that you can look at some of their designs & look for yourself & decide.
I’m just trying to educate people as the the Whys & Why Nots
