Interflora florists brave the weather to keep on delivering!

by Charlotte.Barnes on December 14, 2010

With more bad weather predicted for this week, we just wanted to reassure you that we are still able to get your flowers delivered.

That’s thanks to our national network of local florists – it means we don’t have the difficulties many other delivery companies, such as couriers, might have.

When you place your order with Interflora, it’s a local florist, close to the chosen recipient, who will create your bouquet  and hand-deliver it to your loved one.

And our florists are always going above and beyond while battling the elements. We spoke to Jo Marshall from Valerie of Dore in Sheffield who told us a fantastic story of a delivery she made in the snow.

Jo had a delivery to make on December 1st and given the snow in the area she had to go to she knew she wouldn’t be able to make it. She rang the customer who understood and said that whenever Jo could make the delivery could she also bring along four litres of milk as they were two miles from the nearest town.

On the 3rd Jo was able to get a lift in the 4×4 of a man who ran the local fruit and veg shop around the corner. On the way to make the delivery they stopped to help dig out a car that was stranded but eventually Jo got to the house with the bouquet of flowers and four litres of milk.

No one was home so Jo made a little den to protect the roses and milk from the weather. And she didn’t even charge for the milk!

As you can see, there’s not much that will stop our determined florists from getting our flowers out to you, whatever the weather.

So, don’t worry – our florists set us apart and allow us to get those flowers to you, your family or friends.
