Flowers have become a way of expressing our thoughts and feelings towards others. In the field of flower delivery Singapore has become a leader, with countless local florists as well as multinationals and various corporations operating in the country. However, many reasons exist for why you should choose local florists in Singapore.
- When you buy from a local florist Singapore and its economy become a beneficiary of the transaction. These smaller shops pay taxes that help the government and the people alike. Larger companies, unfortunately, look for loopholes in tax laws and conduct transactions in a way that they are able to reduce the amount of tax they pay, and even minimize their payment to their suppliers, the local flower growers.
- Local florists have their specialties. Some specialize in flower arrangement for smaller events, some specialize in wedding bouquet, and some specialize in regular hand bouquets. They have expertise over their areas, and therefore can help you make the best decision. On the other hand, larger companies for flower delivery Singapore has observed that they do not specialize or give advice regarding these matters, rather their advice revolves around convincing customers to buy the most expensive flowers.
- Larger corporations are known for heavily exploiting their customers and suppliers. They charge the customer a hefty amount for an item, mostly for the brand name. Unfortunately, most of this amount goes into the pockets of these corporations in the form of their profit margin. A very small amount goes to the actual farmer or gardener who grows these flowers, which is just enough to cover their costs. Everything in between goes to the distributors and wholesalers.
- For special occasions, such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s day or Father’s day, these corporations raise their prices almost three fold! As these events have gained importance, and have been commercialized at a large scale, these days are the busiest days for florists. However, on such occasions, deliveries by large corporations are often delayed and there is little customization. Local florists provide this advantage of giving your order a unique touch, and can deliver your item in a timely manner, and at a much less price.
- The idea of giving flowers to someone is expression of a person’s feelings and emotions. It is perhaps for this reason that the whole process of buying and giving flowers is special. However, with these corporations involved, the personal touch is lost. Buying from a local florist adds this personal touch, with the uniqueness of the product, and mass customization, it makes the process much more special.
So make sure the next time you buy flowers, no matter for what occasion, you support our local florists rather than larger corporations, or order gatherers.
