Valentine’s Day, mother’s day or any other special occasion is usually a busy day at the florist. Helping the customers choose the perfect bouquet or managing the surmounting flower delivery orders can be quite a task. But nowadays in flower delivery Singapore, just like everywhere else, is seeing a downturn in business. You can make a difference by supporting local florists.
Here are a few reasons why you should buy from local florists:
Why should you go to an expensive flower shop when a local florist sells them at a more reasonable price? How about the fact that you get better value for your money?
If you are trying to impress someone wouldn’t the best of the best flowers do? Local florists stock good quality flowers. Not only that, after they have been neatly and precisely plucked, they are tended to immediately: meaning they are given the best care allowing them to last longer.
Going in to a local florist shop also allows you better options. Flower arrangement could be made according to your needs, the right colors will be chosen and different combinations of complementary flowers could be used. And if the flowers are to come with a gift delivery, a fruit basket or a hamper then the florist will adjust the bouquet according to the requirements.
A local florist will also teach you how to take care of the flowers the proper way, according to the weather in Singapore and any other factors that need to be taken into account.
Did you know that when you place an order with an international flower vendor, you pay more money for less value? Moreover, if you are buying online, there is always the chance of getting conned. The photographs on their websites have fuller looking bouquets when the reality is very depressing. Not to mention if you order from your local flower shop, the flowers + delivery charges would actually be less than what you are paying to these imported flower companies.
So now the ball is in your court, what are you going to do? Order a hand bouquet online and be disappointed with the amount you paid and the amazing horror that is the bouquet when it arrives. Or are you going to go to your local florist and actually get the value for your money in addition to a unique flower arrangement and not an off the conveyor belt flowers mash-up that will make you wince every time you look at them.
