BUY LOCAL FOR BETTER PRICE!
Did you know that when you purchase flowers from an OUT-OF-STATE flower marketer, -- like Teleflora, FTD or 1-800-Flowers, Just Flowers, Wesley Berry and many others -- you are paying them BIG BUCKS to find a REAL florist (Like the Flower Hut) to fill your order?
That’s right. When you order from an Internet marketer, all they do is extract a HUGE COMMISSION and then PASS THE ORDER to a REAL Florist for design and delivery!
What does that mean to you?
Here's an example: The Teleflora Happy Face Bouquet is $39.95 on Teleflora's website. BUT they ADD a Handling Fee of around $14.99 (and MUCH MORE at Holidays!) Your total cost is $54.94!
Buy direct from the Flower Hut’s website, http://flowerhut.com and we knock 20% off OUR $39.99 price for a net $31.99. We don't add a Handling Fee but we add a delivery charge of $10.50 and local sales tax. You pay Flower Hut $45.57.
YOU SAVE $9.37...that's a 17% saving!
BUY LOCAL FOR BETTER QUALITY!
But there is MORE to the story than just saving money.
Remember the Happy Face above? After Teleflora takes your $54.94, they pick a Teleflora member florist in Charlotte -- like Flower Hut -- KEEP the $14.99 handling charge, extract a 20% commission and send us the order for design and delivery. But it gets worse!
They ALSO extracts an additional (roughly) 10% in transmission fees. So the member florist ends up with just $27.97 to MAKE & DELIVER an item that YOU PAID $54.94 for!
SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE! And that “Something” is CUSTOMER SATISFACTION!
Did you know that ALL the major Wire Services -- Teleflora, FTD and 1-800-FLOWERS, are rated by Yahoo! Shopping at just over 1 STAR!
