Since 1963, Ingles Markets have strived to bring the best quality and variety to their customers. This is very apparent in their well-established floral departments. They strive to be able to service their customers with their needs, from dressing up a beautiful azalea as a gift for a friend or as elaborate as creating gift baskets, beautifully wrapped bouquets and arrangements for special occasions. Certain locations also have experienced floral designers that arrange weddings on a regular basis. The floral departments at Ingles Markets have evolved over the years due in part to staying fresh with new ideas and working closely with their vendors. Working directly with the farms and local greenhouses by creating their own bouquet recipes and choosing plant material a year in advance has really put them in a category that keeps them ahead of the trends.
Ingles Markets are involved with many charitable organizations where the floral departments assist with providing fresh cut arrangements and a variety of plants in their events yearly. Breast Cancer Awareness, Miracle Hill and The Children’s League are just a few. Ingles Table is another way of connecting with the customers by offering “How To” videos for creating arrangements at home their own with product purchased in the floral departments. You can find these at Inglestable.com. Meeting the customer’s needs is the focus and to always bring something new and fresh to the table.
