Consumer Alert: Don't be deceived!

Are you, or your friends and family, ordering flowers from a real florist?

Beware of placing orders through national online, yellow page, or "800 number" middlemen who charge inflated prices, skim hefty service fees, and then pass your floral order to a local florist to fill at a discount! You won't receive the full value of the money you've spent on the flowers.

Some very popular and well advertised companies participate in such practices. You'd be surprised at what they advertise, and what you really get for that price, and WHY.

Some independent agencies have investigated the floral industry and such "order gatherers." Visit the "Florist Detective" to learn more!
