Benefits of Using a Local Florist vs. a National Florist

Whether you’re looking for holiday flowers, wedding flowers, sympathy flowers, or “just because” flowers, you are going to need a florist. With so much of modern business being conducted over the Internet, it may make sense to order your flowers online as well. While most florists today do offer online ordering options, you will have to be careful about making sure that the website you are using is indeed a local florist and not a national order-gathering service.

Why Use a Local Florist?

Perhaps the largest benefit of working with a local florist is the simple fact that you know there is a person behind the scenes that you have easy access to. You can pick up the phone and speak to the designer if you want to add details to your order, or if you just want to check on the progress.

When you order flowers from a national conglomerate, it can be very difficult to track down a person to talk to should you have questions or want to change details of your order. If you do manage to speak to someone, chances are that you won’t be able to get in touch with that same person again if you needed to, creating a perfect situation for confusion.

Other benefits of ordering flowers form a local florist include:
• Supporting small businesses and contributing to the local economy.
• Keeping your tax dollars in the area in which you’ll benefit from them.
• The enjoyment of personal, customized service.
• The ability to see your flowers in person before they are delivered.
• More flowers for your money, as you will not pay exaggerated prices or handling fees.

When you order your flowers from a national florist, a local florist is usually the one that ends up filling your order anyway, so why not cut out the middle man?
