Our airwaves and online visits are filled with ads for flowers. Photos of lush bouquets emanating from large vases implore you to call 1-800 to order now for delivery. Ordering from a huge 1-800 company is a lot like fast food. The commercials look appetizing, but the actual product can be very different.
The 1-800 Way
What happens when you call a big 1-800 flower company? You are connected to an order taker who is part of a massive call center somewhere far away. That person’s only interest is selling you the biggest bouquet possible, price-wise. He isn’t thinking about what flowers are in season or what would be a good fit for your gift recipient. It’s about taking orders and moving on. Some companies even ship flowers in boxes with the vase packed separately so that recipient has to put her own bouquet together. That takes some of the fun out of receiving flowers.
Peoples Flowers’ Way
It doesn’t have to be like this. There is a better way. Call 505-884-1600 to talk to Peoples Flower Shops. We’re a local, family-owned business and we know flowers. Our floral professionals can suggest beautiful seasonal arrangements, track down hard-to-find flowers, and customize bouquets to meet your needs and budget. Plus, local business means local delivery. Your flowers will arrive fresh, unbruised and beautiful.
Hidden Costs for Low Prices
Big 1-800 companies often pull in customers with extremely low advertised prices. That can be tempting, but look out for extra costs hidden in high service and delivery fees. Big delivery prices means less of your money goes to the actual flowers. Your dollar goes much further with Peoples. Our prices are competitive and we don’t surprise our customers with unreasonable extra fees.
Customer Service Makes the Difference
This is a story about customer service. We don’t have a warehouse-sized call center, but we do have a dedicated staff who is knowledgeable, friendly, and dedicated to delivering gorgeous fresh flowers. With a large 1-800 company, what you think you’ve ordered is not always what is delivered. With Peoples, our design professionals and delivery team will make sure the bouquet is gorgeous and arrives in lovely shape, ready to wow the recipient.
With Peoples, you have a point of contact to walk with you through the ordering process, answer any questions, fill you in on flower availability, and provide any follow-up you might need. Some big flower companies will substitute flowers, which can be an unwelcome surprise. With Peoples, we know what’s available and how to keep the blooms looking their best from our stores to your door. So go ahead and pick up the phone with confidence. Peoples Flower Shops is just a ring away at 505-884-1600.
