Meet The Team
There are 6 of us working at The Village Florist. Debbie & Leanne, who are mother and daughter, and Jo & Trevor, who are husband and wife. The four of us came together and bought the shop on 22nd August 2011. The original owners set up The Village Florist over 20 years ago, the shop has had two different locations but is now situated at 18 Queens Parade, North Road in the heart of Lancing town centre.
We are enormously proud to say that we have developed the business from day one by improving the appearance of the shop front, our display inside and increasing our customer base and business generally. The choice of stock has increased considerably which has all added to a busier week for the four of us resulting in us employing two new qualified florists, Faye & Clare.
We have an excellent working relationship with many of the other traders up and down the High Street as well as an ever increasing number of our customers who we have come to regard as friends and are now on first name terms with.
With a fresh flower market only 15 minutes drive away, we are very fortunate with our location that we can obtain fresh stock 6 days a week. In addition to this our purchasing volumes enable us to have visits each week from Dutch suppliers bringing flowers straight from the auctions in Holland.
We cover a very wide delivery area from Chichester to Peacehaven along the coast and inland up to Crawley, and everywhere in between.
If we are unable to deliver personally we can use our relay system, e-Florist, to send orders further afield and overseas.
