I purchased a bouquet from this flower shop in May to send to my mother on Mother's Day. In late July I noticed on my credit card statement that I had been charged $130 from this flower shop even though I hadn't purchased anything in months.

I called up and spoke with James, the manger, and he told me that they were having problems with the credit card company that was located in California but he assured me that he would take care of the problem.

Six weeks and 20 plus calls later I finally spoke to the owner, Timothy Snellgrove, a nasally, arrogant guy who told me that he could do nothing and that it was all up to the credit card company in California. He owns a small business, he could have offered to write me a check, or even offer me cash for his mistake, you would think it'd be worth it to him to save a good customer, but he basically blew me off.

It's September and I still haven't received my money. This florist is a nightmare, DO NOT get involved with them, your credit card could wind up charged 6 months down the road, and if you don't check your balance regularly you could be out a considerable amount of money! There are plenty of other florists in the area that would appreciate your business, STEER CLEAR!!!

Not only will you have your credit card abused, but the flowers look like crap and die in two days! and the guy that runs the place will tell you to f**K off if you call.

I want to note that I have had nothing but positive results from Mr. Snelgrove. I went into his elaborate shop and found more than I was looking for. From Chocolates to Flowers, Ornaments to giftware. I bought all my christmas presents for my family and then some. My wife especially loves the arrangement I brought home last night. It is opening up beautifully and she is very satisfied with me.:)

Happy husband not in the "dog house".

Thanks Flowers by Timothy!

I have to say that this is the best florist that i have ever used,there flowers last for ever.The people that work there are so kind and helpful. I have never had issues with them. you will be very happy that you called them. The Snelgrove has been in the florist world along time. The shop in the center was sold a few years back and had a lot of bad things go on with it, its sad to see that this shop is taking the blame. Just me ! this florist is GREAT and very nice. Try it you"ll see.

I've heard they owe their suppliers money. It looks like Mr. Snelgrove can't be trusted.

This post right here is fraudulent! because who else would use Mingo as a name? Mingo is Tim's ex-wife's dog (now!). Come on Tim its going to catch up with you sooner or later you can't keep using people like you do! Run run have your fun but remember someday you'll turn around and it will be in your face!

I wouldn't eat anything from this store. They sell out dated stuff. The candy they make had hair in it. They make the candy in the same place they do flower arranging. NOT SANITARY at ALL! STAY AWAY! You have been warned, they owner is an a%* hole in plain english. They also don't pay there bills, he tried to open a checking account and couldn't! His credit is so bad. He had to put the checking account in the girl that works for him's name. Melissa is it. Just all around not a good place to do business with.
Great

Anyone notice Snelgrovs in Poquonock is CLOSING oh they are moving. Yeah right! Karma finally caught up with them. See Tim and Missy haven't been paying rent and now the owners of the building are taking them to court. All you have to do is look them up on Connecticut's judicial website its public record. Karma comes full circle how do you like it now Mr. Snelgrove and Ms. Wight?
