For small flower shops Valentines day would be a great time for them to make a lot of money. However this is not the case for small flower shops that have to use FTD, 1-800-Flowers and Teleflora. These companies is what market these small flower shops and gives them flower orders unfortunately this company is not only taking these company money they are also leaving them in debt. If your shop can’t handle the orders and you have to reject an order there are fees that range from $10 -$100.
For some of you who bought your significant others roses, but were too lazy to walk to your local flower shop, please note that they would have received more flowers from your local flower shop than from you ordering it online.
Website make it look like you will receive a lot of lowers when in reality that isn’t the case, and your also paying about $70 for a $26 bouquet. You are paying more than you have to, and getting a lot less then what your suppose to.
Not only are these companies scamming these local flower shops, but they are also scamming you. So reach out to your local flower shop, keep the money in the neighborhood who knows, maybe it would come back to it.
