Marquis Flowers is a family run business in operation since 1931. We
have provided Lethbridge, Southern Alberta, South Eastern British Columbia
and South-western Saskatchewan with quality flowers and plants at affordable
prices continuously since opening in 1931.
Product quality is of utmost importance to us-- we
will only buy the freshest product from our growers and refuse any product
order where a doubt exists. From the time fresh flowers arrive at our
location, we immediately process and re-hydrate all stems in proven
water solutions, allowing flowers to have a good drink before placing
in one of our two large walk in coolers. Buckets of flowers are date coded
to only have the freshest used for either cut stems or arrangements.
(This is generally not required as flowers come and go so fast that
they are never in the store long enough to get old).
Flowers are ordered in three times a week (more often at holiday times)
with the bulk being bought from the Vancouver BC floral auction. Exotic
varieties are bought world wide through trusted brokers ensuring only
the best are available for the retail customer.
Product selection varies seasonally, but "Marquis
Flowers" generally has on hand 50 to 60 different varieties of
flowers and greens for the greatest possible selection. All are tastefully displayed
in the coolers with common names and everyday low prices. If a special
request for flowers for wedding or sympathy is needed, we can generally
have a specific variety and color in a couple days notice.
Pricing of what we feel is a fresher, superior product
is generally lower than any tradition florist, and marginally higher than grocery
chain, discount sellers pricing. Pricing does tend to fluctuate more
than tradition florists, because we pass savings we have made from volume purchases, directly
to the customer.
Our staff are knowledgeable and experienced in
providing you with professional advice and design answers to fit your
every need. We have six regular staff and numerous qualified people
to fill in on those holiday rush periods. Support staff in sales are
knowledgeable and courteous and willing to listen to your needs
before offering suggestions- for that special floral arrangement that's
just right for you. From our flower prep personnel, to our delivery
staff, any better can not be found.
We use two of our own delivery vans to ensure that when we call to
arrange a delivery time, your flowers are there promptly and in the
best possible condition. Holiday times we bring in experienced people to help with the timely delivery of your orders. We don't feel that common carrier delivery
people know, or care how to handle flowers, whether in the heat of summer
or freezing cold of winter.
We take special pride in the service provided to our customers both
in what we offer and in going to reasonable lengths to satisfy any special
request you may have of us.
- We offer special delivery times at sensible prices.
- Out of town delivery to farms or acreages.
- After hours order processing by phone.
- Rush deliveries to all funeral homes.
- Confirmation of delivery and time if requested.
We want you to be absolutely pleased with your purchase from our firm.
We will replace unsatisfactory product with exactly what you wish to
same value. If this is still not satisfactory we will promptly refund
your purchase price upon return of defective merchandise.
