Appreciation for Castro's Flower Shopby Phyllis Bullon on 10/05/12
Trying to make sense of a loss, trying to comfort a friend during their time of loss is hard to do. It becomes even worse when distance causes a conflict and leaves one unable to attend the services to show support for the family.
We had originally searched the internet database from a national florist and had been disappointed with the choices, shocked by the prices, and the salesperson wanted to sell us a different arrangement at a higher cost. Add to this situation, the fact that the national florist called at the "11th hour" and said that the floral arrangement couldn't be filled and they didn't have anything comparable to replace the order... so we would have to order the more expensive flowers...Stress! I was upset and determined not to use the national florist.
In an effort to resolve the problem, I called the local florists in the distant city and was warmly welcomed by Debbie at:
Castro's Flower Shop
2101 Horne Rd Corpus Christi, TX 78416
Not only were they able to fill the order and deliver to the location on time (within a couple of hours of my panicked call), the arrangement that Debbie created was more beautiful than the original (messed up, last minute cancellation) order by the national florist. Debbie even went above and beyond and sent me a picture of the arrangement which was amazing. Her supportive attitude, her creativity, and her heart definitely shows in her beautiful floral creations. Her prices were below the national florist's and the quality above... Definitely a better choice!
