Nothing says you are thinking of someone more than sending them flowers. It is no secret that flowers, even everyday flowers, are expensive. However, many people love receiving them; even 92% of women can remember the last time they were sent flowers! Before you brighten someone's day by sending them everyday flowers, consider purchasing them from your local florist. Supporting your community by shopping local is always a significant boost to your local economy but also provides support to those in your area. Here are some other reasons to consider buying from your local florist.
When you purchase everyday flowers from your local shop, you are getting fresh blooms. You are also getting flowers that are in season. When flowers are ordered from somewhere that is not local, they may be cut and spend many days in refrigerated storage before getting to you. Therefore, there is a high chance they will wilt shortly after they are received.
A local florist can get your flowers to you much faster than ordering them from an out-of-the-area florist. This also means the recipient can enjoy the flowers longer. A local florist has access to everything a larger, out-of-area florist has. However, you can develop a relationship with your local florist who can learn what you like and have it for you when you want it.
Many flower chains add on additional fees or charge higher prices, even for everyday flowers. They often send jobs to the florist in the local area but charge you more to do so. They are really acting as a middle man. In addition, when you buy locally, the florist will have something that fits every budget. If it is a simple plant, it may cost less than $10. They will also offer larger arrangements at a price that is more affordable than larger chains.
There are so many reasons to consider local shops first when you want to send someone flowers. Aside from receiving better prices, quality, and service, you are providing support to your local area. The next time you want to send your favorite person everyday flowers, think local first.
