As you know, at 1-800-FLOWERS.COM we live to deliver smiles, which is why we wanted to share this smile-worthy story from one of our special franchise flower shops!
Local Girl Scout troops love to come into the Victorville, CA 1-800-Flowers | Conroy’s for tours. Manager Crystal Martinez starts by giving them a picture of a specific flower from the product knowledge book, and lets the girls walk around the store to find their flower. After they find it, they read all the information about their flower, like country of origin, meaning & longevity. To add another educational element, Crystal speaks to them about things like ethylene sensitivity.
According to Crystal, “We then walk them through our showroom and coolers, let them try on corsages and show them how the flowers are processed. They like trying to guess what temperatures the flowers need to be held in!”
The visit wraps up by letting the girls make a single carnation bud vase to take home.
“The last troop had so much fun, they asked if they could come back and bring siblings!” says Crytal. “We, of course said yes! Right now, I am the only employee to runs the tours. Other employees have seen what a great time the girls have and they want to do it, too!”
