Really sweet girl but she needs to learn alittle more about flowers. My dad sent me flowers to school and they were dead before i got them home. Dad said he spent $60.00 bucks on them and was upset that they did'nt last longer. I wish them luck, guess dad will get my stuff from Now and Then from now on. Heard they were selling flowers and balloons now.

I am so sorry that happened. I strive in taking care of my customers to make sure that they are 100% satisfied. I would've been happy to replace/refund your purchase had you brought them back to me at Rector Flowers and Gifts 300 South Main Street across from Irby's Funeral Home. I mentioned my name and address because some people are confusing me with the other flower shop in town. Please accept my apology and I will be glad to serve you in the future. Sincerly, Melanie

dad knows where he got them, he's not stupid! we were not the only ones that ordered from your shop that the flowers died. I'm only 15 and i know that flowers should not die that fast. He said he was not coming back in there, he learned his lesson with the valentines day flowers. A refund or different order whould have been a waste of time. Valentines day comes only once a year. Its defeats the purpose to re-send flowers on a different day.
Good Luck

There are lots of new businesses in town that sell flowers and gifts. Now and Then located by Above and Beyond. Rector Flower Shop located by the tanning beds and The Palmer House located across from the fire station. They all offer different items. Check out prices and compare. Its good that Rector now has a choice when it comes to buying flowers and gifts. Maybe prices will stay where everyone can afford them!!!

I didn't post that comment. I'm sorry about your flowers. That's all I can say. I feel bad about it. I wish it wouldn't have happened. I wish you could just accept my apology. Once again, sorry.

That still does not give you a free pass to be rude! Rude is rude no matter what the reason!

Melanie; you did your best and have even offered to make things right; it is not that you did anything purposely. I do have one piece of advice for you in the future; no matter what anyone writes about you or your business on here DON'T RESPOND!! There is rarely ever anything positive on here and no matter what anyone says it will be responded with in a negative manner. This is not the place to defend yourself especially if you have a business. And one more thing; I WOULD ORDER FLOWERS FROM YOUR SHOP and so will many others. Just let it go. Good Luck.

Its really sad that just because i was upset with my flowers, i am now considered a brat. Its funny to me that if your order is wrong at sonic or if your overcharged for something its ok for you to complain. I only stated a fact. Yes she has offered to give a refund but the point i was making is not getting noticed. My dad is ill and may not make it till next Valentines Day and this was special to me and him both. The memory i have is dead flowers and i may not be able to get any next year from my dad. How would you feel? Before you call me a brat maybe you should see the whole picture and maybe you will understand why i feel the way i do.
so you know

Must be rich brat since a "refund" would be a waste of time!!! I'm sure the flower shop is grateful NEITHER of you will be back in there!!

I used to be a florist before I had my daughter and would love to check out your flower shop. I am working with my husband now but would be interested in helping out on busy holidays if needed. I think you and your husband are Good People. Gool Luck!
