Where to Find the Cheapest Flower Shops

Posted in Flower Shop on May 4th, 2007

If you’re in the market for flowers, especially if you plan on purchasing a whole bunch, it will be important to find the cheapest flower shops in your area. So once you find a shop that features low prices, make sure the quality of flowers aren’t low either.

When browsing flower shops, you’ll want to find out which ones offer the finest and freshest flowers. Shops that are next-door to a garden are usually a good bet – as they grow their flowers on site! Not only are their flowers fresher, but they are also cheaper because there is no middleman for these shops.

Similarly, flower shops that sell roses or other types of flowers that are still planted can also boast low prices. Some shops order flowers from a big plantation and unless they buy an extremely large amount of them, there is overhead, and thus the price to the customer is higher. Not to mention, these flowers have a chance to age and wither during the road trip over to the store. Shop attendants who pick the flower and cut it right in front of your eyes, are really preferable, as you can be sure of the quality.

Delivery services often are free of charge and even so, the surprise your loved one will feel when they receive a flower arrangement at their door is priceless. Just make sure delivery is on time and there is a refund policy for flowers that arrive in poor condition. If you ask about what vehicle the shop employs and what the window of time is between the flower picking and the final delivery, this can help you better pick a delivery service.

The Internet provides you with a vast amount of resources as well. Search for a shop or specific type of flower that you are interested in; you’ll find that browsing for flowers online is a surprisingly easy task. But because there is no florist on hand to answer your questions or assure you of the quality of the store’s products, make sure to investigate things, like the refund policy, on your own.

And of course, it’s always nice to support your local florist – if you develop a relationship with the workers at your nearby shop, you may be able to snag some nifty discounts.
