According to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were over 58,000 people working as florists in America in 2015. Although not all of these florists own their own shops, that’s still a lot of competition for your business. You probably see dozens of ads each week for national floral services. These companies tend to advertise heavily on television, the radio, and online. They may even offer deals that sound great. However, these services often don’t deliver on their promises the way a local florist can. Here are three reasons why you should always work with a local florist.
- You can speak to a real person who’ll be doing the work. Ordering flowers online can be convenient, but there’s no way to ask questions or get details about the floral arrangements that are offered.
- You can get custom floral arrangements. Online florists have a number of options for you to choose from. So do local florists—plus they offer the ability to design custom floral arrangements that are tailored to your specific requests.
- You’ll know you’re getting a quality product. We’ve heard numerous reports from our customers who’ve tried national floral services—only to receive flowers that are wilted or dull. Local florists stand behind the flowers they deliver. If we don’t have the freshest flowers available for your order, we’ll talk to you about substitutions that will be equally beautiful and that will last.
As you can see, you’ll probably get what you pay for when you order from one of the big floral chains. At Winona’s Flowers, we take pride in creating beautiful, fresh, custom floral designs. As a local Lancaster, SC florist, we care about our customers and the service we provide to them. Call us today to place your order.
