Large, On-Line "Order Gatherers" Sap the Profit and Quality Out of the Biggest Flower Holiday of the Year

There is always a need of an abundance of flowers especially during Valentine’s Day, but many online order gatherers are just the “middle man” when it comes to delivering and arranging orders. When orders are placed this way it's easy to lose quality, value and control of the order. Many locally owned, hometown flower shops have dwindled over the years because when fees are redistributed, the shop loses money and customers are disappointed in their orders.

Online ordering is a popular and very convenient way to place orders, but the best way to get the bang for your buck is to choose a local shop in the city or destination city of delivery. Most all local shops have their own website to ensure all dollars spent are on a local level and no fees are redistributed.

Kent Whitnah, owner of the local Oklahoma City flower shop, Capitol Hill Florist and Gifts says, “The best way for consumers to protect themselves from deceptive order gatherers is to have a good relationship with their LOCAL florist. Ordering local offers the best value and service. So, when searching for a florist on the web – look for a LOCAL on-line florist.”

Capitol Hill Florist has an experienced staff to make sure all orders are hand arranged and hand delivered and that all flowers are treated with the utmost care to ensure freshness and longevity.
