Fort Worth florist Biceâ€™s Florist, Inc., has declared Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010 â€śGood Neighbor Day,â€ť the companyâ€™s annual celebration of random acts of kindness. Beginning at 7 a.m. that morning Biceâ€™s will give a dozen roses to the first 500 people, with the request they keep one rose and give the rest to other people â€“ friends or total strangers.
Online PR News – 26-August-2010 – – Fort Worth, Tex. â€“ Biceâ€™s has a special offer for Fort Worth-area people tired of heat waves and recessions â€“ free roses, with only one small catch. Lucky recipients will be asked to keep one and give the rest away to others in a series of random acts of kindness.
â€śEach year this is our most popular in-store event,â€ť Biceâ€™s florist president Keith Riewe said. â€śWe get a lot of great stories from our clients about how they have surprised friends â€“ and total strangers â€“ with free roses, and that confirms for us that this is a great thing to do. I wish we had been writing down all those stories; we would have the makings of a great book.â€ť
Riewe said good neighbors from throughout the Fort Worth area who come to Biceâ€™s location at 650 Bedford Euless Rd. in Hurst also will get some additional perks. Biceâ€™s will award gift cards valued at up to $50 at random throughout the day.
Also, each person will be an instant winner of flowers, a gift item or discount on a future purchase in the form of a Lucky Stems game piece, a popular year-around feature at Biceâ€™s. Visitors also will receive Biceâ€™s new flowers and gift catalogue.
FTDÂ® Good Neighbor DayÂ® is sponsored nationally by FTD Florists, a leading floral wire service founded 100 years ago to enable people to send flowers to others in distant locations through a national network of participating florists. Biceâ€™s is a Top 100 FTD florist, which ranks it among an elite group of florists in the United States.
Riewe says the 500 dozen roses Biceâ€™s is giving away potentially can reach as many as 6,000 people. â€śWe suspect some people donâ€™t give them all away, but we also know thousands of people benefit directly,â€ť Riewe said. â€śThatâ€™s a refreshing thought as we move into cool fall weather after a long, hot summer.â€ť
