ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Mother's Day is Sunday, May 13.
Lynn Terry, Owner of Albany Floral and Gift Shop, believes you can tell the difference from store-bought flowers.
"Our flowers are coming straight from the wholesalers in boxes and are fresh, so they will last a lot longer. So that is one reason why they are probably a little more."
So even though, you might not like the price tag and may see a cheaper price at a grocery store.
Supporting local businesses results in further business for shops like Albany Floral and Gift Shop, that has been in business since 1927.
Most shops expect late orders, so the last day to order is Saturday afternoon for all Albany flower shops.
