Why Shop Local
Buying local keeps the economy growing and supports families in that area. Most of the time local businesses offer the best service and best quality. Because they are usually smaller, they can care more for their customers and offer you better service and support.
Non-Local Order Gatherers or 3rd party flower ordering websites. If you have ordered flowers before then for sure you have come across the big-name brand websites offering to delivery your order anywhere anytime. What you may not know is that website doesn’t actually fulfill that order. They most likely don’t even have a flower shop but only have a website to take orders. They will take a cut of the profit and give your order to a local flower shop to complete. Sometimes there is ever more parties involved each taking their cuts. By the time your $50 order gets to the local flower shop they only receive $25 and after their operating cost you might only receive $15 worth of flowers. If you instead took your $50 order direct to the local flower shop, then you might get $40 worth of flowers. When ordering from a 3rd party good luck if you have to make a change or customize your order because you are not going direct to the local flower shop.
