I ordered a bright get well arrangement from Wesley Berry Flowers called "Make A Wish" for my very ill, 92 year-old mother. She recently fractured a hip and is not doing very well. In fact, she may not be of this world much longer. I live 1,700 miles away so one of my sisters e-mailed me a picture of the flowers that were delivered.
I was absolutely stunned that the flowers that were delivered did not even remotely resemble what I ordered. I ordered an arrangement that had a lot of bright yellows and reds. The flowers that this company delivered were almost all shades of dark purple. It reminded me of something that you would send to a funeral. Yeah, they sent what I think is a funeral arrangement to an old lady who's probably in the last months or weeks of her life!
I immediately e-mailed the company and this was their initial response:
I do apologize for this, however we were put of some flowers and substituted with higher quality flowers. I am sending you a $30 store credit as our apology.

I e-mailed back explaining that I'm not about to order any more flowers from them when they are refusing to make good on the first order. I said I would accept a new delivery of something that resembled what I ordered or a full refund. Their responses:
Please accept my sincere apology for the recent issue you had with my
company. Although I am sure it is of little consequence for you to hear, I
want to personally offer you my apology. I take your situation very
seriously. My family has owned and operated Wesley Berry Flowers since 1946,

The order that was delivered was at higher value than the one you purchased since we had to make substitutions on this order. I will not be able to compensate with anything else than what we already have.

I wish I had done a little research on this company before I placed my order. It would have saved me a lot of grief. They are operating a complete scam. Do not order any flowers through Wesley Berry Flowers. I don't plan on doing so ever again.
