Seems like they could do some deliveries today. The roads are clear this afternoon. But I respect them for looking out for the safety of their drivers.

Aw, bitter you actually have to stay home and spend time with your kids?

What's your excuse for posting?
Ijaz Fahted Feb 14, 11:47 a.m.
Yeah, beacuse you have to be at home, and a daycare worker to post on WRAL.

My sweetheart is well aware that the flowers are coming later. We're smart that way.

Love all the day care workers sitting at home posting..

figured there'd be a few with disparaging remarks....I say kudos to then for doing the right thing. Glad money doesn't drive EVERYONE

Anyone that cancels an order with a business this thoughtful and respectful of its employees safety deserves to spend Valentine's Day alone.

This is the kind of company that I would do business with. It is a retail business, it's not essential or life saving. Unlike emergency workers/police/firemen/nurses/doctors that have to be out on the road risking their lives when the roads are not safe. Way to go!

Good to see at least one florist looking after the safety of their drivers not to mention their vans and their product.

Personally I'd cancel the order. Would they deliver a wedding cake a day late., will they show up to plow the roads a day late…must have day care workers employed because they also close at the drop of a snow flake.

Glad there is a company out there that values it's employees more than their profits. Kudos to them!

I think this is a good move! It shows that Watkins Flowers puts employee safety above the bottom dollar! GOOD FOR THEM!
