Cashier was the worst and perfect example of what not to do. She was unfriendly, agitated, and I felt as though I was an inconvenience. Her credit card reader was not working on the register, so she insisted I had to pay with cash or check. Since I had neither, she said, ""I just don't understand why people are so dependent on credit cards."" How ridiculous and inappropriate! It turns out the other register (next to her) was able to process credit cards. Needless to say, there was no ""thank you"" or ""sorry for the inconvenience."" Apparently, she doesn't understand that customers are what makes a business operate.
I ordered roses there for my wedding, and was very satisfied with the quality of all the different types of flowers they had there. Prices were very reasonable. I payed 20 $ for 25 roses! Just make sure you see a sample of the flower you are ordering, and the color. :)

I went to a florists to get pricing for the flowers for my wedding and was shocked ($85 for a bouquet with 6 flowers in it!!!), so I decided to check out the local wholesale flower places in San Antonio. I think, by far, Travis is the most popular, but I was EXTREMELY disappointed when I went there. It was like pure chaos! There ways junk every where, no order to the layout, and the back of the store looked like someone's messy garage!!! I wouldn't be surprised to hear that they've had claims of junk falling on people or customers stumbling in the cluttered aisles. As for the flowers, they had almost no selection and the few varieties they did have were wilted, small, or just generally unhealthy looking. I walked out without buying a thing and then zipped right around the corner to Janal.
Janal was clean, organized and looked like a business (not a yard sale). The staff was professional, friendly and helpful! And the flowers?...PERFECT! Each bud we looked at was pristine and looked like it had just been plucked! They have 2 fresh flower areas, and their variety is impressive! They may be a little bit more expensive, but at least I'm getting EXACTLY what I wanted, and I know they will be fresh on my special day.
If you're looking for the cheapest, Travis might be it. But if you're looking for the best, go around the corner to Janal!
