VIRGIL ALWOOD FLORIST ANNOUNCES MERGER

July 30, 2006

Dear Valued Customer,

After more than fifty years serving the floral needs of Reynoldsburg and greater Columbus, Virgil Alwood florist merged its customer database with Flowerama florist.

The Virgil Alwood family is proud of the reputation and relationship they have worked so hard to build with their customers and are confident that this tradition will continue. With careful considerations of several high profile florists in the area the Alwood family determined Flowerama florist to be the best possible fit for the Alwood's and their customers.

With four outstanding locations, superior customer service and operations dating back to 1990 this merger will give its customers an almost seamless transition. While Virgil Alwood Florist will now appear as Flowerama we are so confident in this decision we have put our name behind it.

Allen Alwood
