High profile pre-Mother's Day marketing by FTD rival 1-800-Flowers pays off

Just to add, wouldn't that have been a brilliant marketing ploy even post-Mother's Day? Ads with photos of still luxuriously blooming floral arrangements and a narrator going "The unique unpaid work of Mom won't cease to bloom after Mother's Day; neither should her flowers."

They'd capture market share ahead of NEXT Mother's Day that way!

Instead, you read how well the competition did.
