Hi! I'm Lori for expertvillage.com and today we're at Archibald Flowers, and we're going to talk about how to purchase flowers. Flowers; they range in price. It's just like any kind of produce and things that change on price. Generally, most roses, they range about 7 dollars a stem for the most part of the year, unless of course it's Valentine's day when they're more expensive. Sunflowers usually range anywhere from 2-4 dollars. Then your tropical flowers usually range anywhere from 7-10-12 dollars a stem. They are a little more expensive, but they do last longer, so you have to keep that in mind. I think when buying flowers, you have to keep in mind again how that makes the person feel when they receive the flowers. I think that's something that will always will be there. People will have that no matter what. They're always a situation where there's a need for flowers. When it's a funeral, when it's a wedding, those types of things. As far as buying flowers just to have flowers, I think there's always going to be a need for that as well, because I think that it does always make people happy to receive flowers. A lot of people like to give flowers for that reason. I think the trend on that goes up and down. Sometimes you'll see people that they’ll send flowers for their anniversary and maybe the next year they'll decide to do something else, but they'll come back the year after because they'll decide this is the time to get flowers again.
