Tale #3: Why Are They Calling All The Way From Montana?
We got a call last week at our shop from Montana. Well actually 3 calls. Two of them before the shop even opened. The customer was skiing in Montana. I mean he was actually on the slopes when he called.
His wife had ordered flowers for her mom several months ago. She loved them so much, she insisted that all of her flowers come from Fly Me To The Moon Florists.
They began calling early in the morning and wouldn't stop until they got us and placed the order.
I wish I had remembered to take a picture of the flower arrangement. It was a large cube vase overflowing with our finest orange and yellowEcuadorean roses, mango and yellow calla lilies, green hypericum berries and trick carnations, yellow pincushion, statice and craspedia. It really was gorgeous.
Shortly after it was delivered I got a call from the mother. She loved the flower arrangement. She wanted to know if we were the same florist that sent her flowers before. I explained that we were.
She asked where we were located and I told her we were in the downtown waterfront district of Yonkers near Manor House Square.
She then went on to explain that she receives lots of flowers from other Yonkers florists. She described their arrangements as "ordinary, using the same old flowers you see everywhere." But that we were the "only florist in Yonkers doing this type of upscale work."
What a complement!
We strive to delight our customers with affordable yet sophisticated floral bouquets and arrangements for every occasion. It's nice to hear that people really appreciate what we do.
What was the best floral arrangement you ever received?
