The directory, located at http://www.localflowershop.com sends consumers directly to the local florist, therefore eliminating wire service fees or commissions.
"We're pleased to be able to offer florists this opportunity to increase their internet exposure and receive orders at 100%, said Art Conforti, president and LocalFlowerShop.com. "Customers are becoming savvy and want to speak directly to a local florist. Florists are looking for a way to compete with the national order gatherers. LocalFlowerShop.com serves the interests of both the consumer and the florist and eliminates the middleman."
The influx of new customers flocking to the LocalFlowerShop.com directory is a backlash that is certain to cause concern amongst the once mighty giants such as 1-800-flowers as well as the deceptive online outfits. These companies currently spend millions of dollars in advertising to court one of the most lucrative ecommerce niches. Countless television segments and newspaper articles exposing the order gatherers have educated the consumer and created a need for a directory showcasing thousands of authentic local flower shops across the USA.
