Who does not love to get flowers…whether it be on their birthday or a holiday or just for no reason at all. The thing is that most people order their flowers to have them delivered right online. You really want to make sure that you are dealing with a reliable company that will be help you and send you those quality flowers that expect and that should be delivered.
Believe it or not these days there is something and someone called a Florist Detective than can help you out with florist related scams because apparently it happens all of the time. There is also a Real Florists Blog where you can read up on articles and concerns that florists and customers are making. I was actually just reading a Letter to the FTC about 1800 Flowers and it was very interesting to say the least. It was sent by a group of very concerned florists to the FTC that are stating the 1-800 Flowers is deceiving their customers within their advertising. There is even a petition that you can sign to help support them.
I think it is horrible that this company is trying to trick their customers into thinking that they are getting something when in actuality they are really not. It is wrong and as a consumer I will be thinking twice about purchasing my holiday flowers with them this holiday season. I will be looking and ordering elsewhere for sure!
