8 Things Impala Flora Wants You To Know.

  1. We Are More Than a Company, We Are a Family.

Impala Flora was established in the early 1980’s as a family business providing customers with quality flowers at a reasonable price. These values have continued with us through the generations of family members who own and manage the business. We are situated in Northcliff and take pride in stocking a diverse range of fresh cut flowers, pot plants and decor. Our friendly staff members have been with us for many years and have become part of our family too; they are the best at everything flowers and thrive on customer service. Our desire now is to make each customer feel as welcome and much a part of our family as possible.

  1. Market Days.

To make sure we work with the ‘cream of the crop’ flora, our purchasing staff head out at 5:30 in the morning to the flower market every TUESDAY,THURSDAY, and FRIDAY, situated near Johannesburg city centre. Arriving early allows them the opportunity to preview the flowers and check for quality before they are auctioned. The auction is a tricky process but with years of experience in purchasing our buyers ensure the lowest price for the finest quality. Once we have our bountiful load, our reliable staff dispatches the flowers to our premises in Northcliff. When they get to the shop the flowers are cautiously unpacked, cleaned, separated, mixed and displayed beautifully on the shop floor. So, if it’s the freshest, longest lasting flowers you want, pop in at around lunch time on TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS and FRIDAYS.

 

  1. Plant Days.

Just as we go the distance with our flowers, we do the same with our plants. Our staff head out to the plant farm every WEDNESDAY morning for the purchase of both indoor and outdoor plants, and inspect the plants we intend to buy to ensure were receiving the finest quality, at which point our driver returns the plants which are then made immediately available for purchase. So, if its potted plants you’re looking for, WEDNESDAY afternoons or THURSDAY mornings are probably your best bet.

 

  1. Online Store.

Watch this space, changes are coming… Big changes.

  1. Covid-19

There is already so much uncertainty in the world regarding the global pandemic that the last thing we want is for you to feel uncertain or uncomfortable in our store. This is why we’ve gone to great lengths to make sure you are safe and protected, for instance, we have over 14 different sanitizing stations strategically placed throughout store so that you are never more than a few meters from hand sanitizer. We also fog our store and products with a disinfectant fogger 3 times per week to keep any products that you might handle clean and virus free.

  1. Party Section + Balloon Bar

There is an entire section upstairs at Impala Flora that not many people have explored, its devoted entirely to party decor, toys and our balloon bar… The balloon bar has tripled in size over the last year and has 3 fully functioning filling stations and a huge variety of latex, foil and bubble balloons for every age and occasion. As for the party decor, we have everything from numbered candles to party-packs, plates, cups and sparklers. Balloons can be ordered via telephone for a later date, or you can purchase them in store and wait while they’re prepared.

Stumped when it comes to thinking about the perfect birthday gift for a loved one or family member? You can’t go wrong with a versatile hamper! Here are our top tips for putting the perfect hamper together. Making sure that the birthday boy or girl feels ultra-special and appreciated has never been simpler.

  • Get Creative 

While you can choose to create a themed hamper – for example, a bath time hamper filled with bath essentials like lotions, scrubs and bubble bath, most people will appreciate a hamper that is a little more varied. Include all sorts of products for pampering, along with a selection of delicious edible gifts, like chocolate or yummy biscuits.

  • Choose the Base Wisely

Putting a hamper together for a new mommy? Instead of using a traditional basket to carry all of the items, why not put them in something more useful like a baby bath, a potty or a laundry basket? If the classic look is what you’re after, be sure to choose a sturdy basket – hampers can get very heavy very quickly!

  • Decorate 

You can make your hamper look amazing by decorating it with flowers or wrapping it in see-through plastic and tying off with a lovely ribbon or bow. Remember, half of the appeal is in the presentation!

  • Quality is Better than Quantity 

Only buy items that you know are of good quality. While a massive hamper may look impressive, if the items inside aren’t useful, it defeats the whole object of the gift.

Save yourself time and money by allowing us at Impala Flora to take care of your birthday hamper needs. Choose from a wide selection of favourites, with the option of customising your very own. Contact us now to learn more.
