Alleged Port Coquitlam cemetery thief pilfering loved ones' flowers - The Tri-City News
Thieves have been allegedly stealing silk flowers from gravestones at a Port Coquitlam cemetery, leaving an 80-year-old grandmother heartbroken.
“It’s so very hurtful, why would someone do something like that?” questioned Jacquelin Gioia in an interview with the Tri-City News.
article continues below
Six times in the last 12 months, Gioia has had to replace the bouquets at the gravestones of her mother, who died in 2000 and her daughter, who died in 2002. The most recent theft was just after Mother’s Day. Gioia said it was a devastating blow, having only just left the bouquets for her loved ones five days before.
“Actually, this is the first time it made me cry more out of anger. I’ve been going a long time and I enjoy going, but this time it was hurtful.”
Jacquelin Gioia visits her mother's grave. The last time a thief allegedly stole flowers from the grave site was following Mother's Day. Gioia says her late daughter's grave has also fallen victim to a flower thief. - Diane Strandb... Jan 4, 2020

Palmer said. Story continues below
Palmer said she paid just under $62 to have the flowers delivered to Summerland from Coquitlam. The arrangement was scheduled to arrive the next day.
Flower delivery service receives wilting criticism from B.C. customers
Instead, they showed up at her mom's house after Mother's Day. When the delivery finally arrived, the flowers were damaged and wilted."You picked them up and the flowers would fall off," said Palmer.On top of that, the chocolates that accompanied the bouquet had melted.Palmer contacted Bloomex immediately. After repeated calls and emails, Palmer said she finally got through to a customer service representative, but hit a roadblock because she didn't have an order number.WATCH: Vancouver Island farmer scrambles to save flowers
Palmer says she never received one. She then contacted Consumer Matters. In less than 24 hours, Bloomex gave Palmer a full refund and an apology.The company told Consumer Matters:"We did experience some courier delays in certain parts of B.C. due to the sheer volume of orders that were in transit, so it seems that this order was one of those affected. If a courier was delayed, as flowers are a highly perishable product this would explain why they arrived wilted and the chocolates melted. It is certainly not our deliberate intention to send either."The Better Business Bureau (BBB) said it took over the Bloomex file from Ottawa about six months ago. In that time, BBB has been working closely with a local representative... Apr 27, 2017

Florist says good bye to downtown Port Coquitlam
In the eight years she has owned Coquitlam Florists, Catherine Polonio has helped some of her customers enjoy their best moments and endure their worst.
Now it’s her turn.
Polonio is relocating the flower shop that has been a fixture in downtown PoCo for 68 years after negotiations with her landlord for a new lease broke down. The last bouquet will likely go out the door at the end of May.
While Polonio hopes to reopen at a new location at the Oxford Market, she says it won’t be the same.
“I’m heartbroken,” she says. “I love my community. It’s like a big family down here.”
And as that downtown family’s local florist, Polonio has helped them tough times like the death of a loved one and celebrated joyous occasions like a wedding or birth of a child.
Then there was the woman who came into the shop after the death of her father even though, she told Polonio, he didn’t like flowers — he was a hardscrabble guy who loved his cowboy boots.Polonio asked the grieving customer to bring in the cowboy boots and she built a ... (The Tri-City News)
