You know I spend a lot of time asking you to SHOP LOCAL. It’s especially important as the holidays approach, because you need to make sure the florist you are ordering from is actually the florist you want to fill your orders for you.
Many listings on the Internet are not local flower shops. They pretend they are, and they’re very very good at it. But it’s deceptive to the consumer, and it’s hurtful to those of us who are local florists.
I’d take a minute (or an hour) to list all of the pretenders, but the list is too long and it grows every day. Suffice to say you, as a knowledgeable consumer, should take it upon yourself to insure you are placing your order with a real local flower shop.
Roadrunner Florist has been in the same location, with the same owner, for more than 43 years. When you call us you speak to either Pamela or Tina and you know you are dealing with us. We are not going to “gather” your order and send it off to have someone else fill it for you! You also know our flowers are the freshest possible, and that we deliver in greater Phoenix. It’s a win-win for you when you shop local!
I thought it would be fun to show you some pictures of our flower shop. Only a local flower shop can do this for you (another thing to watch for when you’re shopping online). The first few were taken inside Roadrunner Florist … just a glimpse of the fun items we carry in the shop.
This is a picture of my favorite flower! Well, maybe not my most favorite, but one of them! This is STOCK, a fragrant flower that’s seasonal (spring) and adds color (white, cream, lavender, pink or purple) to your floral arrangement!
Even though we are only 43 years old, we did get a new sign on top of the store recently.
It’s really no secret that shopping local is the best bet for all of us!
As the holidays approach, and you’re thinking about Thanksgiving and Christmas flowers and gift baskets, remember Roadrunner Florist and Basket Express (located inside Roadrunner) for all of your LOCAL holiday gift-giving needs!
