The Small Business Difference

Small Business Saturday, November 30

This Saturday is Small Business Saturday… which encourages consumers to shop local, shop small businesses in their own community. Ditch the chain stores and seek out the small boutiques and shops owned and operated by friends and neighbors.  Dollars spent in these places of business stay in local economies. It seems that this wave of shopping local has become very popular over the past few years. So the question we want to talk about is… WHY? From a small business point-of-view here are our thoughts as to why shopping small and local really makes the difference in the shopping experience.

Personalized Attention

Though we are a florist and not a larger boutique or gift shop we understand (maybe more than anyone) that each person who walks through our door wants something unique. Many people ask if we have arrangements pre-made for pick-up and the answer is 99.99% always NO. Why do we do this? We pride ourselves at being a customized floral shop… no cookie cutter ever at Lisa Foster Floral Design! We try to take the time to greet each person that walks in our door with a smile and friendly hello!

Free Gift Wrapping

During Christmas, any gifts purchased at Lisa Foster Floral Design can be wrapped for FREE! Save time and tape and let us make your packages pretty! If you have bought something elsewhere and want a professional wrapping job then bring them by and we will wrap them for you (for a small fee!). 

We Care

Probably the most important aspect of small business Saturdays (and all business days!) for small businesses like us is our customers. If something is not right we will make it right! Our goal is to make our customers happy. We love having regular customers and meeting new faces everyday. The Lisa Foster Floral Design Team has laughed, cried and encouraged many of our costumers. Many of our customers are friends and we truly care about what they are going through… To our team it's not just a job it's a calling.  

Small businesses depend on loyalty and the customers that remember to shop local! 

From ALL of us at Lisa Foster Floral Design…

THANK YOU for shopping locally and supporting our business and our families!
