SAN DIEGO, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ProFlowers®, the online fresh flower retailer, today announced the company has been recognized for achieving the highest ranking for customer satisfaction in the 2012 J.D. Power and Associates Online Flower Retailer Satisfaction Report(SM).
The J.D. Power and Associates report analyzed customer satisfaction with online flower retailers using six main criteria: website/online store, usefulness of information, variety of merchandise, in-stock availability of flowers, online store services and delivery, and competitiveness of pricing.
"ProFlowers is honored to be named the highest in customer satisfaction among online flower retailers by J.D. Power and Associates, and I'd like to thank our dedicated employees who strive to make every customer's experience a great one," said Chris Shimojima, CEO of Provide Commerce, Inc., one of the nation's leading e-commerce companies and the parent company of ProFlowers. "Our goal is to ensure every detail is as perfect as possible in the creation and delivery of the gifts. We are committed to providing outstanding service and quality for both our customers and their gift recipients."
ProFlowers' "Fresh from the Field" guarantee states that all flowers will last at least seven days and all plants will last at least fourteen days, or the customer receives their money back. ProFlowers' flowers are shipped fresh from the growers to the recipient's doorstep. By avoiding extended stays in warehouses, trucks and florists' coolers, the company is able to guarantee the freshest flowers available. If for any reason a customer is not satisfied with the freshness of the flowers they ordered, ProFlowers will replace the bouquet or refund the customer's money. More than 40 million bouquets have been delivered to date by ProFlowers.
