I guess I should give them at least one star because Im hoping it was just a bad day. I was dealing with another "Big Florist" in the area and although I gave them a weeks notice they failed me totally. So I looked for another shop and came across Academy. It was less than 3 hours until the dinner and I was desperate. I walked in with high hopes and when I began talking with the young lady behind the counter my hopes fell off the cliff. She was dead pan, emotionless and displayed no courtesy whatsoever. I knew within two minutes that I had walked into the wrong place. It was a horrible, horrible experience. She should not be allowed to deal with the public and her place was probably in the back of the store. My guess is she was the owner’s daughter or something. No right thinking Human Resources manager would ever hire her. Ill never set foot in that place again, no matter how long I live and I suggest you do the same.
I was out of town recently and I realized in a panic that I had forgotten to send my dear friend flowers for her birthday. It was Friday at 4:30. I called Academy Florist because it was within walking distance of where I needed the flowers delivered. Despite me offering to pay double the delivery fee, the florist said it was too late in the day to help me. I explained that I was in a predicament and asked if they could make an exception to their delivery cut off time. They could not. Another florist - on Academy road - helped me out and all ended well. Im afraid I wont be giving much business to Academy Florist on Corydon in the future.
Thank you Academy Florist for always exceeding my hopes and expectations! On a recent visit, after being warmly greeted by the attentive staff, your designer listened, added helpful suggestions, and in very short order, produced a stunning fresh floral centrepiece that my daughter-in-law was thrilled to receive for her anniversary table. On another occasion, a "simple thank you bouquet" sent to a friend received rave reviews from everyone in her office. When I host a special event, Academy is my go-to florist because I know I will receive exceptional quality and excellent service.
A female who was obviously having a bad day grudgingly helped me to get a bouquet together-- many of the flowers in the cooler were obviously past their due date so she finally ended up going to the "back" to get fresh ones-- she even told me that they try to get rid of the ones in the cooler first since it was a weekend and these were the last of the flowers that have not sold throughout the week. The small bouquet for which I paid 40$ lasted only two days was underwhelming to say the least. Never going back again-- bad vibes do not make for happy flowers or lasting customers.
I had a wonderful experience at Academy Florist. I had to dash in for a last minute arrangement for a local Design Stores Grand Opening so a common arrangement was not going to do. I was estactic to find a designer arrangement at a reasonable price waiting for me. The friendly courteous service was so appreciated along with knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend my new Florists!!!!
My go to flower shop for all occasions. You can definitely tell from their bouquets and arrangements that they put real genuine care into them. Lots of friendly happy staff. Great selection. Good consultation services with quotes almost being exactly what it costs for. Larger scaled events. Great online shop with prompt concise delivery with the instructions you leave them.
I used them for my wedding in August. I had a very small order, but I was happy with it! I am not too picky so I really didnt give them much to go off of when it came to ideas of what I wanted.. But they took my vague descriptions of my decor and came provided me with a beautiful bouquet!! The boutonnières were lovely as well!
Ando holiday around here I found the first florist to send a birthday bouquet I was treated really well and the arrangements are very nice
I ordered a bouquet online to be delivered to my mom for her birthday. As soon as I placed the order I received a personalized confirmation email with some questions to clarify my special request. They were friendly, helpful and very accommodating to my request. And most importantly my mom loved the flowers!
I used Academy to deliver a bouquet to my wife when I was out of town (yes I forgot an important date) because I knew that it would be done with care and would be done on time. I was not disappointed, my wife loved the bouquet and i was out of the dog house for awhile.
I have had all kinds of good experiences with Academy Florist. I have used them personally and corporately. My wife and I used them for our wedding and they did just such a spectacular job with everything. Irene is such a gem! Thanks!
Ordered a wrist corsage and boutonniere. The corsage was definitely underwhelming and the boutonniere was so heavy it could not be attached to the jacket. The only good thing was that they were ready quickly.
Small selection of flowers, and they love to add on lots of little extra charges. A lacklustre bouquet of flowers cost 3x as much as any other place. I will never buy from here again.
I bought 3 calla lilies on Saturday. They turned brown by Monday. Phoned the florist and was offered free replacement immediately. Now THATS service!!!
Amazingly talented designers; most experienced florists in Winnipeg for sure. They can handle anything, and they make sure that you are happy.
There are a lot more fun, less insanely priced local flower shops around this area that dont charge an arm and a leg.
I was blown away by the creativity of arrangements available. Fantastic selection! Would recommend.
Happy with the very beautiful funeral arrangement. Nice staff and quick response. Thank you!
Beautiful arrangements. Used them for our wedding!
Great selection and quick walk in service
