Best way to avoid FlowerFraud this Mother’s Day

by lowes on May 5, 2010

FlowerFraud is our new word for the fake Online Florists and Direct Shipping florists who misinform the public about their location and their qualifications. We were reminded of how often fake online florist pray on the public today when a couple called to send flowers to the wife’s mother. They had seen flowers and chocolates online and called us.

The gentleman asked for the special on “our website.” It was pretty apparent by the name of the bouquet and the price, that the gentleman wasn’t on our site. Unfortunately, while he was on YahooLocal or GoogleMaps he had inadvertently clicked on an ad for flowers in a box. When I told the couple the flowers they were looking at came ship in a cardboard box, they were horrified! It never said anything about that on the website.

We were more than happy to help them make a selection that we would hand arrange and hand deliver. They ordered fresh tulips arranged in a glass vase. It will be delivered on Friday and her mother won’t have to arrange her own flowers.

For more information on how to avoid FlowerFraud visit the new “avoiding Flower Fraud Section” of our website. If you would like to order hand arranged, hand delivered flowers for Mother’s Day, or even Mother’s Day hanging baskets, Mother’s Day planters, or beautiful blooming plants, go to our website or call the Lowe’s Floral Hotline at 701/839-2000.
