So, what is a real florist?
Well, Westridge Florist is a real florist in Toowoomba!
We have website, but also a bricks and mortar shop in a shopping center, with qualified and trained florists creating our designs. In our industry, there are more and more online business that merely collect orders from shoppers, take a commission and then allocate your order to a real florists. This commission from your money can be as high as 75%, meaning your spending more and getting less. This also unfairly reflects on the real florists value for money, service and choice of blooms as they are simply filling an order.
Some of these online florists or order gatherers as we call them, are not even based in Australia, making it extremely difficult to speak to someone in real time if something goes wrong or needs changing, like an address change. These online “florists” have none of the costs involved in processing, storing or delivering flowers but take all the profits and it’s the real florist businesses that hire the qualified florists to be able to fill these orders.
Our beautiful Toowoomba flower shop is located in Toowoomba, and we service, same day deliveries to Toowoomba and surrounding areas but if you want to deliver elsewhere you just use the same principle when searching for a florist, ensure they have a bricks and mortar address, rather than just a web address. By using real florists for your flower orders you are supporting local small business, creating and supporting local jobs and local growers too!
