Starting in 2010, Columbus Alive added a top florist category to its annual “Best of Columbus” reader survey.
Connells Maple Lee has won the category in each of its four years of existence.
Columbus Alive, a weekly entertainment newspaper and website serving central Ohio, presented the 2013 results in its March 28 print edition. The survey garnered 532,243 votes from 15,579 voters.
Of Connells Maple Lee’s latest selection, Columbus Alive wrote: “The gift of flowers can brighten any day, sure, but part of why our readers think Connells Maple Lee is a cut above the rest is the company’s outreach programs.”
Specifically, the article cited Connells Maple Lee Stems Hunger, which collects non-perishable foods for the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, and Bouquets for Books, which collects new children’s books for public libraries in Bexley, Grove City and Powell.
“Sounds like Connells Maple Lee deserves some Thank You flowers,” Columbus Alive wrote.
We say thank you to the readers and customers who cast their ballots for Connells Maple Lee. We’ll continue to work hard to earn your votes.
