Many people send flowers for special occasions. Unfortunately, some people forget special days and they have to send flowers late. As for these kinds of customers, there is a way to get out of trouble with friends and loved ones thanks to a small flower shop in Chicago. This shop deals in flowers for all occasions, even late ones!

The owner of the flower shop dreamed up a way to help his forgetful customers. The shop makes an excuse for late deliveries. If a customer has to send flowers late, the shop puts a note in with the delivery explaining what went wrong. For example, the note might say, “We apologize for these flowers being late. Our truck broke down.” Or, “Our delivery man got sick.” Or even, “Our shop sold out of roses, so we had to wait for more to be delivered.” The person receiving the flowers might find fault with the shop, but not with the person who sent the flowers.

In addition to flowers, the shop also sells candy and small toys. So the next time you mess up and have to send a late gift, keep this shop in mind!
