Found a flower place called R&M Wholesale at the Carryville Tennessee exit. Its just past Corbins exits. You can see it on a hill on the right side of the interstate if you look. I went in there. Wow. You wont believe how cheap the silk flowers are. They sell to anyone. They sell the Sympathy throws and art prints dirt cheap. They even sell the funeral home cards. If you have a tax ID you get it a little cheaper. The silks are just like the ones you just stick in the foam at memorial gardens. They sell the round foam. Anyone can do it. The flowers are only like $8 and $12.50 for even the biggest gorgeous ones. They have all the netting of any color like you get at the local florists.

You will do your own flowers and send your own gifts to the funeral homes for now on. Who wouldnt for those prices. I stocked up and have no problem dropping my gifts off at the funeral home. I bought several things and I am going to drop off my own gifts in the future. Money is tight. This is the only way to go.

On valentines day I dont want my husband spending $50 on something thats going to need thrown out. Thats $50 you will never see again. I rather have a $50 piece of jewelry. Belks JCPenneys and Dobson and Keith is where I would get jewelry or a nice watch or great Pefume.....

I haven't seen her down there in a long time. One of the girls that work there said she was having health problems. I hope she's feeling better.

Our shop will have awesome designs. We will beat anyone else's prices by 30% at least. There is a huge markup on flowers. A $350 casket spray for us costs only about $75 dollars in actual cost of the flowers. We are only going to charge $150 for any casket spray and $25 funeral baskets. We will also have several gift lines that will not be marked up. We want to be a full service florist for here in Manchester. We want everyone here to get great deals and satisfaction guaranteed. Our memorial garden vases will start at $15 on up. Watch for our add in the news paper.

sorry to say this, but we have to many already. have no need for another florist in this lil town, think about it... one just went out of business (trudies) because not enough trade so you better think long and hard before you do, just trying to help you. there would be no way i would go into a new business this day and time. there is only so much need for flowers and those trinkets and really people are getting tired of those. when someone passes away they are sending gideon bibles now, so i would really pray about this first , it's a big step and alot of dept.

If it cost $75 for the flower's,and the arrangement priced $150,that doesn't seem that cheap.Why would you double your price if your wanting to give cheap price's?But then i don't know how much time,and labor goes into this.Good luck!

Price shop the other stores and undercut their prices do quality work and you will get the business from here and surrounding areas. There is always room for more business and it helps keep the prices in check. I think this is the store that is locating in town. Well good luck we need what we can get in Manchester!! I comute in everyday but do business there :)

I think the other poster is right. What few things we do have in Manchester, we have three or four of in town. You don't see too many new ideas coming in here.
