Bring spring and summer inside your home with the help of the talented florists at Major Market. Their experienced staff can make fragrant, beautiful arrangements with their vast selection of flowers.
“We have the biggest inventory of imported and local grown product in town,” said Kerry Doney, floral manager for Major Market. Doney has worked in the floral department for over 18 years, and 16 years of her tenure have been as floral manager.
Their exceptional inventory includes premium fresh flowers and potted plants. A blend of extraordinary inventory and talented florists creates the recipe for floral beauty.
The floral department at Major Market is quite unique, said Doney. Although their floral department is located in a grocery store, make no mistake about it, they are a full service florist specializing in floral arrangements for any occasion.
“We do anything and everything,” Doney confirmed.
The Major Market Floral Department has earned a distinguished reputation as one that can create everything from the exclusive, elaborate, and exotic, to the trendy, or desired traditional arrangements. .
Whether the flowers are for a wedding, funeral, party, birthday, quinceniera, or any other special occasion, Doney and her associates perform pure floral magic.
“One of the nice things about us is that you can give us a budget and we can work around it,” said Doney. “We start our arrangements at $20.”
Even when working within a tight budget, this team has a way to make each arrangement special, lovely and fragrant. “What makes a great arrangement is in the eye of the beholder,” Doney said.
With FTD and Teleflora affiliations, Major Market can send flowers anywhere and happily deliver locally.
“Our floral department is something that continues to be popular in the market because we have so many options,” said Doney. Many shoppers find it easy to take care of their floral needs with an easy stop by the store.
“We always suggest that people call ahead and order just so that something gets made specifically for their needs,” said Doney. However, if pre-ordering isn’t possible, the Major Market cooler offers lots of floral goodies.
“We have a cooler full of arrangements, a big selection of potted plants, fresh cut arrangements, and fresh cut bouquets, which are locally grown,” added Doney.
Aside from the lovely floral arrangements, the florists at Major Market are known for their professionalism and personalized customer service. Listening to the customer is something Doney says is priority. “A lot of things are involved in every order,” she noted.
In addition to floral arrangements, they also offer a fantastic gift basket program, said Doney. Being located in a grocery store means access to an array of basket items, including spirits. A customer can either shop for the items themselves or place an order with the floral department.
“You can bring me a basket, or we have them in stock; we have zillions of baskets,” she said.
The florists at Major Market guarantee beautiful, fresh arrangements, and attractive gift baskets. Their dedication and attention to detail is destined to make any event memorable.
