1-800-FLOWERS.COM(R) Celebrates the Flowers' Power to Reconcile
Online Floral Company Offers a Special Bouquet for April 2nd Reconciliation Day
CARLE PLACE, N.Y., April 1, 2008 // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- For over 30 years, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM(R) has been helping friends, relatives and romantics express their deepest sentiments of love, longing, gratitude and sympathy through fresh flowers and thoughtful gifts. In honor of Reconciliation Day on April 2, the world's leading florist is now coming to the aid of the feuding and the estranged by offering a special bouquet intended to reconnect and repair strained relationships.
To promote reconciliation among fighting friends and lost loved ones, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is giving all customers looking to make amends a 15 percent discount on the purchase of the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Garden Pathway bouquet from March 31 through April 4. Using flowers as a modern day "olive branch," the vibrant floral arrangement comprised of fresh pink roses, sunflowers, lilies and daisy poms is a cheerful burst of color, perfect for those seeking forgiveness and attempting resolution.
In celebration of Reconciliation Day, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is paying homage to former syndicated advice columnist Ann Landers who began popularizing the concept in 1989. Citing the healing powers of forgiveness, Landers urged her readers and beyond to bury the hatchet and reconnect with former friends and arguing relatives. Today, Reconciliation Day serves as a reminder for people to take an active approach in fixing a broken relationship and 1-800-FLOWERS.COM is pleased to continue Landers simple idea of reconciliation by giving customers a unique floral option specially designed to say "I'm Sorry."
"The philosophy behind Reconciliation Day matches the goal of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM to connect people and reinforce relationships through the delivery of thoughtful and surprising gifts," said Jim McCann, CEO and founder of 1-800-FLOWERS.COM. "We hope that our Garden Pathway bouquet will inspire people to use the magic of flowers to reach out and make amends with estranged friends and family."
For those needing a last-minute fix to any lingering conflict, the 1-800-FLOWERS.COM Garden Pathway bouquet, honoring Reconciliation Day, is available for next-day and same-day delivery.
