Why Local Matters: Join Peoples Flowers in Supporting Local Businesses

Peoples Flowers

Peoples Flowers: a local Albuquerque business since 1944.

A pebble drops into a pond and the ripples echo outward. Buying local has the same effect on a community. This is about consumers supporting local businesses, but also about those same businesses supporting each other. We take pride in our community and know that our customers do, too.

Peoples Flowers is your local florist

Peoples Flowers has been a family-owned local business in Albuquerque since its founding in 1944. The original founder’s son now leads the company. Over the years, Peoples has grown to four locations in Nob Hill, Downtown, the Northeast Heights, and the Far North in Albuquerque. We deliver to Rio Rancho, Corrales, Bernalillo, and all over the metro area.

Our partnerships with local businesses

Peoples Flowers is proud to support other local businesses. Our partnership with Soilutions is smart for the local economy and smart for the local environment. Soilutions is a green waste recycler and compost manufacturer in Albuquerque. Leftover greenery from Peoples Flowers gets sent to Soilutions to be re-used. That means less waste is going to our local landfills!

Buffetts at Peoples

We partner with other local businesses to make our community stronger.

Flowers and chocolates go together. When Peoples Flowers was looking for the best chocolates and candies to offer with its bouquets and gifts, we chose Buffett’s Candies. Buffett’s is another family-owned local Albuquerque business with a commitment to freshness and excellence. This is all part of the positive ripple effect that happens when customers shops local.

Why shop local?

Buying local supports your neighbors and their families and helps to build up the community around you. Here are four compelling reasons to shop local.

1. Keep money in the community: Locally-owned independent businesses put more money back into the community than chain stores. This re-investment comes in many forms, such as the hiring of local employees, donations to community organizations, and partnerships with other local companies.

2. Get better customer service: Have you ever been on hold with a mysterious call center far, far away? It’s not a pleasant experience. Buying local means that you have access to real people, right here in Albuquerque. Peoples Flowers prides itself on top customer service. We provide personalized floral design and can answer any questions you might have.

3. Support local non-profits: New Mexico is know for its generosity in funding and volunteering for community organizations. Local businesses are a huge part of supporting these non-profits. When local businesses are thriving, they have even more opportunities to support local charities in turn. Peoples Flowers supports many local organizations through its Helping Hands program. Those groups include Watermelon Mountain Ranch, Special Olympics New Mexico and Albuquerque Academy.

4. Celebrate what makes us unique: Peoples Flowers has nearly 70 years of experience as a uniquely New Mexico florist. We have our finger on the pulse of the community. We know the local trends, supply local chocolates, and listen to what our customers have to say. We are your local Albuquerque florist and we join you in celebrating our New Mexico culture and businesses. When you say you want a bouquet to match your chile ristras, we know exactly what you’re talking about!

Extra Special Daffodils Available Friday & Saturday Only

Some very special Daffodils will bring a shower of Spring and hope to Albuquerque home healthcare and hospice patients on March 23rd and March 24th.

Peoples Flower Shops have been a long time sponsor of Presbyterian’s Daffodil Days fundraiser.  This charitable activity raises funds to support Presbyterian Home Healthcare and Hospice patients with financial needs. Wayne Pollack, owner of Peoples Flower Shops, says, “We are honored to be involved in a project that delivers support at an intensely difficult and vulnerable time in patient’s lives.”

Daffodil Days is celebrating its 28th year. Over the next few days 160,000 beautiful daffodils will be sold throughout Albuquerque, New Mexico. 500 volunteers will help with unloading the flowers, unpacking boxes of vases, baby’s breath and greens, preparing the flowers, driving delivery routes and working at sales sites. The daffodils will be arranged into bunches and bouquets – some for early delivery and others destined for sales at over a dozen locations in Albuquerque and Rio Rancho.
