Thousand Oaks, CA (PressExposure) June 24, 2009 -- Flowers by Barbara in Thousand Oaks, CA is pleased to introduce its completely redesigned Web site. The new site offers beautiful new photographs of fresh flowers and floral arrangements for all occasions. The site's improved navigation also helps visitors find flowers by color, price and occasion. Visitors to the Web site can order arrangements online or place orders by phone.
"Having an online retail store is exceptionally important," says Kim Sunwoo, owner of Flowers by Barbara. "Our customers want to do business online and we need to deliver an outstanding retail experience."
"The importance of buying local can't be understated," says Sunwoo, "But local flower sites find it difficult to compete with the many order-taking sites." According to Sunwoo, people don't realize that most online "flower shops" aren't flower shops at all, but just sites that collect orders and money. "We want our customers know that when they order from our online site, they're dealing directly with us."
Sunwoo says that the new Web site is more than just a convenient way to shop.. "Customers prefer to do business on the Web. They can shop when they have time, without worrying about traffic or wasting gasoline. With our new Web site, our customers save money by avoiding delivery charges and service fees. Service and value really distinguish a local florist from an online order-gathering site. Anyone can take a customer's money, but the local florist is most interested in developing a long-term customer relationship."
