General Info:
Company History Our story begins with the vision of Richard P. Morrissey, his wife Dolores A. Morrissey and his parents Frieda and Vincent Morrissey. Together they founded the company in 1955 in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Rich Mar Florist first opened its doors that year in the basement of a townhouse on Gordon Street, but that was only the beginning of the story. In the years to come Rich Mar Florist would expand to our most remembered and most popular location at 4th & Tilghman Streets in Allentown. During the late 1970's Richard's Son Richard J. Morrissey entered the business and became the head designer and manager of the 4th & Tilghman Street store. The 70's was a good time for Rich Mar Florist: our expansion reached all over the area from The Berkshire Mall, Gilbertsville, Village West, Broad Street in Bethlehem and Center-City Easton. The wave of expansion continued into the 1980's and would help shape the current face of Rich Mar Florist as it is known today. In 1981, Richard J. married Frances M. Martin and she too joined the business to work alongside her husband. In 1987 Rich Mar converted an old TV repair shop into the beautiful location it is today at 2407 Easton Avenue in Bethlehem. The following year, we moved a few blocks down to 17th & Tilghman in Allentown the old Shane's building. Over time, these two locations became our busiest and during the 90's would become our only, flagship locations. In 1989 we opened our Design Center in Allentown, where we take all of the phone orders and make the beautiful arrangements we deliver to our customers everyday. The vision of Richard and Vincent is alive and well with their family. In 2003, Richard J.'s son Jonathan entered the business upon his college graduation, marking the 4th generation of Morrissey's to enter into and operate Rich Mar Florist. Rich Mar has always been a family business with the intent of giving back to the community that has made us who we are. We have grown from our basement to the Internet and plan to keep our family vision alive and well for another 50 years.

Do Not Use!

I received flowers as a gift and, fortunately, the people who sent the flowers also sent me a picture of the flowers that were advertised. What I received was a clump of flowers stuck in a dollar store vase. The advertisement showed a beautiful arrangement with 4-5 times the amount of flowers in a beautiful vase. In addition, no flower food was provided. My friends then requested a replacement be sent. When it arrived Rich Mar wanted the old bouquet back and the replacement bouquet was even smaller than before, droopy and still no flower food! The vase looked more similar to the one advertised, but it was certainly far less spectacular in person. No apologies were ever made. When I called to complain they insisted I'd received it as advertised, but then he admitted he had never seen the arrangement I received or the advertised picture. I emailed him the pictures, which obviously showed a huge difference in both size and quality. When Rich Mar received the pictures, they acknowledged nothing, just suggested we contact FTD for a refund since they hadn't charged my friend's credit card. When my friends contacted FTD they said they would have flowers resent from another florist and stop dealing with Rich Mar. Thank goodness!

This place is a complete rip-o...

This place is a complete rip-off. I am a very conscious shopper, and hate when business's attempt to swindle people. Rich Mar Florist is a business who only cares about dollar signs. They attempt to cheat you right in your face!

I went into Rich Mar Florist to get a dozen red roses for my wife. I was undecided if I should have them delivered, or give them myself. I asked the young girl at the counter what my options were. She said I could have them boxed, or in a vase. To get them in a vase at the store, it would $39 + tax. Not bad right?

I then asked her how much it would be to have that same vase with 12 red roses delivered, and she told me it would be $55 + a $9 delivery fee + tax. I said what in the hell? So they charge me $16 more, to simply say I want them delivered, and on top of it, charge a $9 delivery fee?

The girl at the counter understood how angry I was, and she said that she doesn't know why they made that kind of price. She was the only thing pleasant about my experience at Rich Mar. She was kind, and courteous, but I will never, ever set foot in that store again, and will advise others against it.

I would understand if the delivery fee was a bit higher, but to try and rip an extra $16 dollars out of me by simply marking up the price on the SAME item, is ridiculous!

Rich Mar florist only cares about ripping people off.

The prices listed in store are our cash and carry specials. We offer lower prices for pick-up. Our delivery service is considered a premium service and does entail higher fees for that. I am sorry the clerk did not explain that.
