Hey there flower lovers! Are you thinking of sending a bouquet to someone special? Well, before you reach for your phone and dial up 1-800 or wire services, let's talk about why you should be supporting your local florists instead!
First off, let's talk about the perks of going local. When you support local businesses, you're putting money back into your community. That means you're helping to support small business owners who live and work right here in Toronto. And you know what they say, "when you support local, you're supporting a dream!"
But it's not just about being a good neighbor. Local florists are also able to offer unique, personalized service that you just won't get with the big guys. They know the city, they know the trends, and they know how to make your bouquet stand out. Plus, they're way more likely to go the extra mile to make sure your flowers are perfect, because their reputation depends on it!
And let's be real, ordering from a big chain is like playing a game of telephone with your flowers. Your order gets passed along from one person to the next, and by the time it gets to the florist, it's been so watered down that you might not even recognize what you ordered. When you work with a local florist, you're able to communicate directly with the person who will be creating your bouquet. That means you get exactly what you want, without any miscommunication or surprises.
But wait, there's more! When you work with a local florist, you're also more likely to get fresh, locally sourced flowers. At May Flowers, we source from over thirty local farm and micro farms here in Ontario. And who doesn't love supporting local farmers and growers? It's a win-win for everyone involved!
So, the next time you're thinking of sending flowers, skip the big guys and go local. Support a small business owner in Toronto, get personalized service, and enjoy fresh, locally sourced flowers. It's a no-brainer, really. Plus, you'll feel good knowing that you're making a difference in your community, one bouquet at a time.
