Floral industry adapts to avoid withering
Munford opened her floral shop with co-owner Laurel Quarborg 30 years ago. She’s noticed a decrease in florists as well and attributes it to older business owners closing up shop because of retirement or having nobody to take over the business. Five shops in the area have closed in the last five years, she said.Parker believes older generations closing up shop is one reason for the decrease — but another is because the younger generations aren’t interested in joining the floral industry.“You’re not going to make a ‘bazillion’ dollars. I think younger people are looking for the big figures in life,” he said.There’s also a wave of moving to online orders and younger customers tend to favor digital services, Munford said.“The internet and Yelp, Google — younger customers are expecting more instantaneous service without personal service,” she said. “In other words, they want to text it and get it done, boom.”Munford has tried to embrace this new wave of technology and even created a video about drone delivery as a joke.But even as online orders are increasing and shop owners are closing their doors, both Munford and Parker said that business has been doing well. Parker said expensive online prices draw customers to his shop instead and Munford said that the less flower shops there are, the more business The New Leaf gains.But there’s still competition with grocery stores and other “big box” stores carrying flowers for a cheaper price. Munford and Parker both said people will most likely not find the expertise and quality that floral shops can provide.Norfolk Florist, owned by Houston-based Lone Star Bloom, has closed three of its five shops in the past few months.But although this looks like business is going downhill, Lone Star Bloom owner Kyle Brown, said the company decided to open up two other locations elsewhere to expand Norfolk Florist’s customer and delivery base.One is planned for Newport News, while the other is planned for the Suffolk area. The branches on Baker Road in Virginia Beach and Battlefield Boulevard in Chesapeake will remain open.Lone Star Bloom owns 16 brick-and-mortar flower shops across several states – a business they promote with a “Sell Your Store” tab on their website.Br...
