and talks about READY FLOWERS regarding
Numerous Complaints, Non Delivery, Poor Quality and the ADMIRER BOUQUET of ROSES & LILIES
"It’s another typical tale of a tragic romance. Australians have been jilted by their unrequited love of online retail once again.
Online florist, Ready Flowers bungled its same-day delivery guarantee, causing uproar as Australian consumers took to online forums and social media sites to voice their bitter disappointment. The issue was further compounded when, after the brand’s Facebook Page was inundated with complaints, Ready Flowers decided to block all further posts."
