25 December - Christmas Day - The entire month of December will see a moderate increase in sales based on multiple holiday parties at work, home, churches and various benefit/charity groups. The holiday is not really confined any longer to the specific day but for an entire month of celebrations. This allows the florist to be much more flexible and provide for the entire month. However with that said be mindful that the flower shops will be busier for the entire month so it would be appropriate to remind your customers to place orders early and with enough time and flexibility to ensure a proper delivery. YPF requires all orders for the actual holiday to be placed by the 23rd and by 5pm in each time zone. All orders rcvd after this date will be placed ASAP for the 24th/25th with a guarantee of delivery of the 26th/27th or 28th. As above most florists will be closed on the actual holiday but there will be a few that may deliver but no guarantees can be offered.
**We are urging all delivering flower shops to remain open for order acceptance and deliveries on Sunday, December 21st, in an effort to make this holiday season as profitable as possible for florists everywhere. Please join your fellow flower shop owners in this proactive move towards a successful holiday season! As always - we will do our very best to ensure all deliveries are placed on/before the holiday and never take the options of a later delivery unless absolutely required based on florist availability. **
Please note that our offices will be closed on Christmas Day in observance of the holiday. We wish you and your staff a happy and safe holiday season!
