Strikes have been immanent throughout the year; we have deliberately avoided using Royal Mail as a postal option for this reason
(PRWeb UK) October 25, 2009
Local florists have seen a surge of orders, according to the UK's fastest growing same day delivery service network http://www.iflorist.co.uk
Having a network of over 1800 local florists across the UK, means that local delivery of flowers can continue despite the national postal strike action.
Orders have switched from postal flower companies to the traditional and extremely reliable service offered by your local flower shops that not only provide a reliable delivery service, but ensure that flowers are personally arranged by skilled florists and are in tip top condition.
Florists are one of the oldest and most established parts of the local community which not only have local delivery knowledge.
With the continuing Royal Mail strike, customers will have huge doubt when considering an online purchase. The reassurance of offering an alternate method of delivery is critical at this uncertain time in order to continue business. Many online florists have relied entirely on Royal Mail to send flowers to the customer's door, flowers are then subjected to poor travel conditions and the possibility that they are severely delayed or stored until after the strike action backlog has been cleared.
Time-sensitive deliveries have always been a problem with Royal Mail which results in frustrated customers unable to send flowers on-time for birthdays, anniversaries or sympathy.
Due to this fact, iflorist send flowers via local florists which guarantees delivery on time - and even same day flower delivery.
Sarah Jones, a florist in Bristol commented "Customers can relax knowing their flowers will be delivered on time".
