Forget Me Not, not forgotten
Debbie Nowell has a very good reason to smile.
For the first time in nine years of business Forget Me Not Florist has been named a finalist in the 2016 Matamata-Piako Business Awards.
‘‘We are just super excited, we try really hard and it’s a nice little boost in the middle of winter,’’ says Debbie, owner/operator of Forget Me Not.
‘‘It’s recognition of the hard work we put in to making our customers happy and an incentive to carry on, to know we are appreciated.’’
Debbie says aside from the beautiful flowers, it’s the people who make her business worthwhile and she happy to know that going the extra mile for her customers is appreciated.
‘‘We are sending emotion, not sending flowers. It’s about being there for people when they can’t be there. Whether it’s in love or sympathy, so that’s really import- ant for us. We try so hard to get it right and make it a good experience.
‘‘Being in a small business is hard work, a lot of time and dedication goes into it.’’
Voting opened last week and closes on Friday (Aug 12). The awards will be presented at the Matamata-Piako District Council’s Business Night Out on Thursday, September 1 at the Matamata Memorial Centre.
