About Shopping Online For Flowers

  • September 4, 2018

Shopping online for flowers is easy, convenient, and often saves time and money. However some people simply won’t shop for flowers online because they are under the misconception that online flowers are somehow inferior to those you get when ordered from a brick and mortar flower shop. Nothing could be further from the truth. First of all, most online flower shops have connections with brick and mortar flower shops in various cities that make up the bouquets and deliver them. This is really no different than what happens when you order from that flower shop around the corner.

Second, if online florists were not delivering quality arrangements they wouldn’t be in business very long. Whether a business is on line or down the street if the customer is not satisfied with the businesses product and services they simple won’t do business with that company again. A business that has few or no customers doesn’t last long.

Third the chances of getting the exact bouquet you ordered from an online florist is equal to that of ordering from your local flower shop. A lot of people are under the impression that if they make that trip to the flower shop and pick out the bouquet they want to have sent to that friend or relative that lives in another state the recipient of those flowers are going to get that exact bouquet or arrangement they have chosen. This is simply not the case. When you go to your local shop and order a specific bouquet, the flower shop then contacts another local florist in the city where the flowers are to be delivered to prepare and deliver the bouquet. While the second flower shop does try to fulfill the order as specified they may be out of one type of flower and have to substitute. Their personnel may also be less skilled at flower arranging than the shop you are used to dealing with.

All flower shops whether online or local try to give the customer exactly what they order. When that is not possible they try to substitute flowers as near to the original choice as possible even if that means using a more expensive flower to fulfill the order. So you can rest assured that each flower and each bouquet you order from that online flower shop is going to be as beautiful as the florist can make it because their reputation is on the line.

Now that you have gotten rid of all those misconceptions about online florist think of the convenience these shops offer you the customer. You can do your flower shopping from home, have the flowers delivered right to the office or the home of the recipient and even send a card with a special message. Best of all, you don’t have to leave the office or find a sitter to make that trip to the local florist and you pay nothing for gas so you actually save money on the purchase. Now that you think about it aren’t online flower shops a great deal?
