I'm a regular customer at Steins, but I always called over the phone. I went into their store for valentine flowers a couple days ago and found much more then I expected. The shop is beautiful! As soon as I walked in I could hear running water. I traced the sound to a beautiful pond filled with fish and I think I spotted at least 1 turtle. There are flowers everywhere, stuffed animals, chocolates, balloons, plants, and much, much more. There were a lot of other customers there for the holiday, but I still got fast, friendly service, and most importantly, beautiful flowers. My wife loved them! I got them Saturday and they still look just as fresh today (Tuesday). I will continue to be a regular at Steins. I highly recommend them.
I was attending my nieces Holy Communion at Saint Peter's when I realized that someone else I knew had their daughter there as well. The service was to begin at 12noon and it was 11:45am. I ran across the street to Riehs Flower Shop and asked if they could put together a small bouquet to give the little girl. The gentleman attending me created the lovliest arrangement and cut it down to the perfect size (length wise). All in 5 minutes. It was beautiful wrapped and absolutely perfect for the occasion. I was even more satisfied with the price. I didn't expect something so beautiful to be so very reasonably priced. I'm definitely a fan. I'll be returning to Riehs this week to see about a prom corsage.
I usually shop their location in NJ, Steins at Sunset Florist (which is also great and close to me), but I stopped in while in the area and found a wonderful treasure! This shop is huge! It has 2 floors to shop and everywhere you turn is something beautiful, including an indoor pond with fish and turtles to visit. And like their sister company, the employees are knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, and professional. Their flowers, plants, and arrangements are among the most beautiful I have ever seen and their gifts are great! I highly recommend this shop as well as the one in NJ; and with the 2 locations they deliver really far. I will always shop Steins for flowers!
