A bit of a flashback as I started this blog in April 2oo9. As with many businesses, 24hrscityflorist.com was not immune to the fallout of the current global financial crisis. I am glad we took the lull period of 2008 (between the months of Mar to Aug) to inject some new offerings to our customers and we manage to better of equal our end-of-the year sales compared to the previous years. January, traditionally a very busy month for sending hampers, saw significant drawbacks in the quantum of purchases. It was a month we could not afford to lay back and hope for the economic storm to passover. A good month nevertheless but certainly a month we could have done much better if it wasnt for the situation we are in.
