So I've mastered the use of facebook and have moved on to blogging! I wonder what my grandfather would think? It seems to be a popular way to get out current information to those you wish to reach...so I'll give it a try!
We've just finished up with Mother's Day and what a week it was! Thousands of stems of flowers, dozens of boxes of glass vases, lots of thorn pokes, sliced thumbs, swollen hands and sore feet....but many, many happy moms! Well, all except one....and that's a story in itself.
A young lady came in this morning fretting because her mother had not received any flowers for mother's day. She had placed an order online with 1-800 flowers, but the flowers never arrived. We aren't sure exactly what happened...but she said her credit card had not been charged. Lucky for her...unlucky for her Mother. It was most likely and error in the ordering process. We helped her pick out a lovely bouquet, gave her a business card, and told her to call us directly next time she needed flowers.
This is the one issue we deal with on a regular basis, helping people understand that it is ALWAYS best to depend on your local florist whether you are sending flowers locally or across the miles. Ordering flowers from an online "order gatherer" such as ProFlowers or 1-800 Flowers adds unnecessary fees, and usually ends in disappointment.
