From a generation of florists with a total of nearly 60 years of experience in the business, Alan Prince (Sole Proprietor of Flowers of Worcester), opened his first flower shop at the tender age of 17 in Dudley in the West Midlands. Then, after gaining a wealth of experience in the business, it was in his late 20’s that Alan eventually started Flowers of Worcester which has now been successfully serving the Worcestershire and surrounding community for over 17 years.
“The early years weren’t easy”, says Alan. “I remember starting out with very little except a loan from my father to buy a van and a burning desire to make a success of my business however, these were probably the most important years as they taught me so much about the business and what customers really wanted – that is, fresh, quality, long-lasting flowers at an affordable price.”
Over a period of time, Mr Prince went on to open a total of twelve successful floral retail outlets and has since sold them on to focus on his large Worcester unit. Today, with a total of 28 years of experience in the industry under his belt, Alan Prince is proud to be the sole proprietor of probably Worcester’s largest supplier of fresh cut flowers. Flowers are delivered directly from Holland three times a week and if stored, are kept in a climatically controlled storage facility to ensure only the best blooms ever reach the shop.
“We pride ourselves on the reputation we have gained for supplying totally fresh cut flowers that last and last”, says Alan, “and it’s this that keeps our customers coming back time after time”.
In addition to serving the general public, Flowers of Worcester continue to be proud suppliers to Worcester Cathedral , Worcester College of Technology, local restaurants and public houses. We are also proud to supply for The Worcester Theatre Presentations and University of Worcester graduation ceremonies. As well as catering for home florists, Flowers of Worcester have even supplied to football celebrities and other well known names in the entertainment industry.
As for the future, Flowers of Worcester intend to carry on the family tradition of supplying fresh, long-lasting flowers at an affordable price to everyone. Now, with our web site, we hope to reach a wider audience who can benefit from our delivery service, qualified florists and outstanding selection of bespoke arrangements.
“Whether the flowers are for a wedding, anniversary, birthday, funeral or just for someone special, we continue our promise of assuring you of our very best attention at all times.
