With all the ads online that pop up telling us we have won the latest and greatest phone or video game system, it is kind of a wonder why anyone could ever fall for such a ruse.
And, when it seems like there is a real deal on a product or service, we jump at the chance because the economy has us in a grip where we have less money than ever before to spend.
So, instead of thinking it through many of us may have bought cheap items only to realize that you get what you pay for and that it was too good to be true.
Flowers are Expensive
One area that many of you may have cut back in is buying fresh flowers. And, when you see ones advertised for cheap, you wonder if they are the real deal.
As a flower shop, this has come to our attention because we have seen many second rate florists are advertising online specials for elegant bouquets with starting prices in the range of only $19.95. This is a prime example of if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is because, as it turns out, they are not elegant bouquets at all.
These are bare minimum bouquets that are small and certainly not fresh. Sometimes, it even turns out to be a scam. Some consumers have complained that these companies have even been known to deliver the flowers a few days late or not at all.
Then, these flowers often show up in boxes that take away any of the special or elegant feel rather than coming hand-delivered as if they have just been picked and arranged.
There are many florists out there like this, but luckily there are also just as many quality, family-owned florists out there as well. At Peoples Flowers, you can always expect our bouquets and floral arrangements to be fresh and of the highest quality.
Don’t be fooled by scammers making promises they can’t keep because if it’s too good to be true, it probably is! Instead, choose a local florist who provides exceptional value as well as the freshest flowers possible!
