Our new Normal
Here is our new normal moving forward with opening and staying open this summer:
Cleaning: obviously, we’ve always cleaned but it looks like we will be wiping everything down with industrial cleaners after each customer.
Masks: we will wear masks as long as the Governor recommends it and then it will be up to individual employees to decide for themselves whether they feel more comfortable with or without the mask. Customers are not required to wear them.
Social distancing: after months and months of standing 6 feet apart, this will be part of our Summer reality. We ask that everyone just be kind and courteous about this one.
Abbreviated hours: without baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, conferences, Weddings….which make up the bulk of our Summer income, it does not make sense for us to work 10 hour days 6 days a week. So we implemented shortened hours Mondays through Thursdays 10-3 and Fridays 10-6.
Website: our updated website reflects our designs and flowers we feel confident we can source. There are fewer offerings and they are defined with a seasonal mix of flowers so that we can use the freshest flowers available to us even if they are not in the picture online.
Locally grown: Since many flower farmers throughout the world have closed or halted growing more flowers until they were sure there would be a market for them, we are sourcing as many of our flowers locally until the new normal of flower distribution stabilizes. Fortunately for us, we have many flower farmers in the area and Linda used the quarantine to start a small cutting garden for us.
No-Contact delivery: we are predicting this will remain with us at least through the Summer but could become a challenge when the temperature gets too hot. Extreme hot or cold is not good for the longevity of flowers…but we will deal with this when we have to.
