I dont need any floral arrangement but I dont mind helping floral shops on Valentines Day and Mothers Day for a little spending money. I did it last year for this floral shop in Highlands but they are closing their doors

I know that has to be rough business besides those two holidays they really can only depend of weddings and funerals. Plus super markets with floral shops got to hurt business.
I was driving around and you just dont see floral shops like you use to.

Anyone know of a busy one so I can give them a try tomorrow morning?

Teeter made it way too easy for people to pick up flowers rather than going to the florist. Delivery services ate a big piece as well I am sure.

dont ever order from 1800flowers.com. I did TUESDAY and they didnt show up today, because WHY on earth would UPS be delivering them?

sorry to hear that Lawerence. That proves my point of the signs of the times.
I hope they turn out ok. UPS is ok but a box is just a box to them .

You could try Edible Arrangements....

Edible Arrangements stores in North Carolina, NC

I don't know if they have a lot for V-Day but I would love to get one, perhaps others feel the same.

There are two florist shops here in Harrisburg, speedway florist and Harrisburg florist, not sure how busy they are for them to need your help though.
I think your best bet would be to contact Flowers by Oralene., they do an internet business also so they may be the busiest, they are in Concord. Their phone number is (704) 782-8312

I have been pleased with a small florist on the East side of Gastonia/Lowell called Akers. Very nice staff and good selection.
