5 benefits of flower shopping locally

There are numerous reasons why supporting local florists is better than shopping in supermarkets, department stores or other non-specialised stores. The comparison ranges from how the flowers are stored, how they are arranged, how they are delivered and the amount of customer care which goes into each bouquet. Obviously the price is the most powerful advantage when it comes to purchasing flowers from a supermarket due to them being bought in much larger quantities. Local florists usually can't afford to buy in bulk therefore can't really compete with the lower costs of supermarkets, however with that being said there are still so many advantages of buying flowers from a local florist.

5 Benefits of flower shopping locally.

1. Flowers last longer from a local florist.
Local florists take better care of the flowers they sell, ensuring you always get the freshest, healthiest and and the highest quality blooms. Typically florists also carry a more superior quality variety of flowers compared to that of supermarkets. Shopping locally for flowers provides you with the peace of mind that the blooms bought are going to last well & stay looking amazing for a long time.

2. Local florists offer a wider variety.
As a florists main concern is the quality and variety of stock you can always be assured that shopping locally will give you the biggest choice of blooms available compared that that of a supermarket. Supermarkets purchase their blooms in bulk but only buy certain (more mainstream) flowers and varieties, meaning they'll never be able to offer the variety a local florist does. It's also worth noting that a local florist can supply add ons to their blooms such as luxurious packaging, festive bows or even a hand written note to make your bouquet look extra special.

3. Flowers are more eco-friendly from a local florist.
Local florists sell flowers that are free of pesticides and fertilisers making them eco-freindly. They're also stored in an ethylene free environment, nurtured with the right amount of plant food and kept at the correct temperature which reduces your blooms chances of wilting and also helps keep their colours looking vibrant.

4. Local florists have the skills to make beautiful flower arrangements.
Florists are creative people & they're exceptionally well trained in providing unique and appealing flower arrangements. They're passionate, knowledgeable and arrangements created by local florists are considered pieces of art, because behind each bouquet is a lot of strategy and creativity.

5. Local florists are friendly and appreciative.
Your local florist is always going to be more friendly and appreciative to most supermarket staff due to their passion for floristry and the business they have chosen to go into. It's also easier to develop a lasting relationship with a local florist because although they're business owners, they're also members of your community.
