‘We don’t have enough product for our customers’: Many local flower shops put a hold on Mother’s Day orders


WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – With Mother’s Day just around the corner, several Wichitans are heading to flower shops to pick up orders.

KSN News spoke with two florists this week who both say Friday was one of the busiest days they’ve had all week. They also mentioned they had to stop taking orders because they’re low on staff and flowers.

“Everybody tries to order flowers at the same time, and we don’t have the flowers or any product to deliver for them,” said Vivian Tran, owner of Lilie’s Flower Shop.

“We’ve remained to keep our storefront closed, so that hinders a little bit because people have to order and then pre-order, and we have that little pickup table, and we do no contact,” said Jennifer Banard, owner of Tillies Flower Shop.

Other local flower shops said they may open their doors for the public on Sunday.
