Last week we reported on a news item from the Chicago Tribune that raised concerns about the financial stability of FTD due to a recent regulatory filing by the company warning that it may go out of business or shrink its operations if it cannot find a buyer or raise money by June 1.
In that article, I stated that there is no reason to be alarmed by the news after a conversation I had with a trusted source at FTD clarified what was originally reported in the Tribune. That statement was my opinion and I tried to make it as clear and simple as I could.
However, since that article was published, I have received numerous calls from concerned florists and the number one question I’m asked is if they are going to get paid from FTD for Mother’s Day and beyond.
My answer…NO WAY would I know that, but I can certainly understand if people are feeling nervous or uncertain. If you do have any concerns about getting paid for the orders you fill for Mother’s Day and beyond, I strongly encourage you to call your local FTD representative or consider exploring your other options.
You still have time and the choice is up to you. I’m always here to talk anytime if you have any questions or concerns. Please comment below or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Have a great week!
