It's that time of the year! The Great Minnesota Get Together is here apon us (a little too fast for my liking!). Maple Grove Floral will be attending the fair this year in the Horticulture Building on August 30th, from 10am - 3pm. We'll be hanging out with the fair goers, answering questions about our store and flowers and more so, promoting Minnesota flower shops with the Minnesota State Florist Association. You can learn more about the association by going to : www.localmnflorist.com
Here is just a quick blerb from the MN State Florist Assoc;
"Not all "local" florists are local. Some out-of-state tele-marketing and online firms pose as local florists. These companies mislead consumers into feeling that they are ordering from a local florist, but without their knowledge, are being call forwarded to another state. These firms charge higher fees and take business away from legitimate local florists. These companies gather orders and send them to florists, keeping a percentage of the total amount the consumer spent."
