I am so dissapointed with 5th Avenue Florist TVTE Gateshead today. I have used 5th Avenue for the last 12 years and always been delighted. I wanted to order two Boquests of flowers one for Lobley Hill literally 5 mins away from TVTE and one to Rowlands Gill. I was informed 5 GBP charge for delivery to Lobley Hill and 8 GBP delivery to Rowlands Gill. I have never been charged delivery in all the years i have used them. I was so taken back by this new information i said i would just leave it. I live and work in Saudi Arabia and made a Point of only ringing 5th Avenue.
I have been buying flowers for my home for 12+ years and wouldnt go anywhere else! The arrangements are beautiful and the flowers have been exceptionally long lasting. I have used the phone service when away on business and the handtied bouquet was superb and delivered on time and with care. The staff will make you up a smaller arrangement if the ones ready are not to your taste and are pleasant and helpful.
