COVID Brings Some Limitations To Flower Deliveries

COVID makes for a different Valentines Day with Florists having some restrictions on deliveries.

Gunnels Florist Manager Rosemary Andrews said arrangements for nursing homes, school systems and hospitals are being dropped off at the front door. Besides that, roses can still be delivered straight to your doorstep.

“Actually, our business has been thriving,” Andrews said. “I think with people not able to see their loved ones, but they still want to let them know they are thinking about them, so they send them flowers. Luckily, we are one of the small businesses that has been able to stay open and doing well with it.”

Andrews said flowers have been plentiful, but some vases have been hard to come by. Andrews said she recommends getting your orders as soon as possible to ensure your bouquet makes it to that special someone.

“Most shops in town will be closed on that Sunday,” Andrews said. “However, we are doing most of the deliveries. A lot of the people like to get the flowers at work. We are doing a lot on the Friday before. Then on Saturday just to their homes.”

Andrews said pre-payment over the phone is recommended. Curb side pick-up is also available with Gunnels Florist.
