Pugh's Flowers Local Same Day & Express Flower Delivery Ever feel like your world has been turned upside down? The past 3 weeks have really felt that way to many of us in the Memphis area. Just a few weeks ago, our 4 floral design centers were open to the public for in-store shopping. Now they are temporarily closed to the public, while we do our part to help protect the health of our employees and Memphis area families. At this point, we are still able to accept orders via phone and through our website. Our delivery staff can still provide local same day delivery. We also offer a great no touch delivery option as well. Meaning, customers who prefer that we leave the arrangement on the doorstep can be accommodated. It has been interesting to see that many customers have actually opted for the no touch service. In the event a customer does opt for no touch delivery, we do make an concerted effort to notify them by phone when the delivery has been accomplished. We have spoken with quite a few customers over the past few weeks. They really seem to long for the day when they could come in and shop at one of our beautiful flower shops. We offer a wide array of occasion themed gifts that have always been very popular. Many enjoyed the opportunity to shop, while they waited for one of our expert designers to custom design a gorgeous fresh flower arrangement for them. We want you to know this.
