Today is #ShopIndependentDay. We wanted to dedicate this blog post to our 2 independent shops, and our fellow, local independent shops in Marlow and Bourne End.
It has been a hard year and a half for all small businesses across the world. This year we are so happy that more people are celebrating ‘Shop Independent Day’ after the tough year we’ve all had. Shopping independent is more important now than ever before. Choosing to shop at a local or independent business that’s survived the pandemic over a large chain not only makes you feel good, but makes the small business feel good, and means that you’re supporting the economy and helping the high street’s stay around.
We have been so lucky to be able to survive the pandemic and have come out better than ever with another shop now open in Bourne End FlowerLand garden Centre. We appreciate every customer that’s ever shopped with us, we appreciate everyone who chooses to buy from our florist over a supermarket. When we reopened our Marlow Florist Shop in April, after months and months of not being able to open, we especially appreciated seeing our long term customers returning on the week of opening and even on the day of opening! We so glad we have more normality back, we absolutely love seeing the busy Marlow high street and all our fellow local independent businesses operating again. Some fellow local shops we love are: TwentyThreeLiving (a beautiful boutique home shop in Liston Court) Satollo’s (Where you’ll find the best brunch and coffee), The Marlow Bar and Grill (Perfect for an evening meal), and The Cedar Marlow (Who do the best, homemade sandwiches with a different variety daily).
Our Florists are also so happy to be back, and creating beautiful flower arrangements again. We’re so lucky to have our talented team of Florists who have stayed working with us. In lockdown, they took to creating flower arrangements from flowers in their gardens, or ones they found on their walks – that is true passion!
Now we’re back, we’ve created some new summer bouquets, that are available to buy on our website, click here to shop them. We also have been busy creating new Summer flower bottles and jars, which have been best sellers in our Bourne End Shop, shop them online here, or come and visit our shop! We also have some beautiful indoor and outdoor potted plants ready to buy at our Marlow Shop, or if you’re not local, we have a small variety on our website – click here to browse.
Maybe you’ve browsed our website and haven’t seen exactly what you’re looking for, please feel free to give us a phone call on 01628 477990. One of our Florists will be happy to help. Whether you’d like wedding flowers, baby shower flowers, funeral flowers, flowers for a corporate event, anniversary flowers, or even flowers for yourself – We’d love to make your dreams a reality. No matter where you are in the UK, we can help you.
