Allen’s Flower Market Selected as Best Long Beach Florist by Beachcomber Readers

AFM7We are honored to have been selected by the readers of the Beachcomber as the best Long Beach Florist for 2016 as a Best of Long Beach Gold Winner.

The newspaper told us that we received an impressive number of votes during the July voting period, so we are thrilled that our customers think that much of us to vote us as the winner in this category.AFM6

The results were just recently shared with Beachcomber readers during the middle of September, so we believe that this will be a way to attract even more customers to our Long Beach flower shop and our website to check out what we offer in terms of value, variety, quality and service.

Every day, we strive to do that much better for our customers by giving them more to choose from at the best price possible.

Plus, we continue to search for the best floral farm partners and gift partners, including supporting local businesses like we do for our online bakery products.

We also keep adding new floral designs and products to our Long Beach florist location and our website to provide you with the best gift and décor ideas for your celebrations, occasions, and design enjoyment.AFM4

In addition, we also are continuing to expand our event and wedding flower services so we can help more people create memorable days and events that are framed with the freshest flowers and the most unique floral designs.AFM7

Thank you to our customers, vendors, and partners as well as our staff for giving us the enjoyment we have as a local Long Beach business. We look forward to serving all of you for years to come.
