On Christmas Eve, leaving the liquor store on 8th Street in Saskatoon, I decided it would be a good idea to buy my girlfriend and her mom each some flowers. I have seen so much good marketing from Select Roses, the fresh cut flower specialist, on 8th Street over the years I decided to stop in and see what they had. Wow! Was I ever impressed. I had no idea what I was looking for or what to do. As soon as I walked in a nice customer service staff member approached me with a friendly smile and offered help. She started by asking me the right questions to figure out why I was there. I told her I had no idea what to get. She showed me the flower area and told me to go in and look around. She followed and walked me through the different bouquets. She obviously knew what she was talking about. And she was genuinely helpful. She made me feel comfortable right from the start. I decided on two similar flower arrangements, one with a pine accent and one with a cedar accent. I guess that is what they are called! She told me to pick out a card if I wanted while she got it wrapped up. She walked me through the entire experience. I picked a couple of cards and by the time I did both flower arrangements were ready to go. She then told me how to take care of them and sked me how long they were going to be in transport. I did not even care how much the arrangements were as the experience was so pleasant. As I was paying I looked at her name tag and below her name I think it said “new trainee” or something like that. If she was only in training imagine how good she will be when she can be called experienced. I was very pleased and will definitely return there. This is a recount of my true experience and was not asked to publish this. When I am given a great experience I have to tell people about it. Next time you are interested in an excellent flower arrangement in Saskatoon, make sure you stop by Select Roses. They have seasonal flower arrangements, Webkinz and other stuffed animals, cards, chocolates, flower vases, balloons and awesome service.
