How can I send flowers to my girlfriend in Columbia, Tennessee?
Posted by Michelle Hughes on
Sending flowers can be confusing thanks to all of the advertising that pops up when you google "send flowers." There are two types of businesses that take orders for local flower delivery online. The first, and most prevalent thanks to deep pockets, are order gatherers. You're probably familiar with several big names in the flower order gathering business. These ARE NOT florists. They are floral networks. Florists pay to be part of these networks and the networks advertise heavily. When you order flowers for someone through an order gatherer they take your info, find out where you are and then push that order to a florist that is close to where you want to send flowers that is also in their network. There is no customization of your order, you get what you see on the website. Unless that florist isn't able to carry every flower in over 300 arrangements, which none of them can. Then you will receive substitute flowers, whatever the florist has available.
There's a better way to send flowers to your girlfriend in Columbia, Tennessee! Contact an actual florist that is actually in Columbia. Several of the order taking websites will try to trick you into thinking they are local by putting the city name in their ads, something Google really shouldn't allow. They will claim to be the best florist in Columbia, Tennessee with absolutely no presence in the city.

Try that with a national order gatherer and see what happens.
