I got some sunflowers for my girlfriend's birthday through their website a couple of weeks in advance, but then a couple of days before the original delivery date I emailed them asking to have it delivered one day earlier, which they had no problem doing. They also sent me an email letting me know the flowers had been delivered, and gave my girlfriend a call to make sure she got them. Thanks!

It was a Sunday and my daughters birthday. We had sent her gifts from NY to Boston to be delivered overnight, two days prior to Sunday. To our surprise the post office did not deliver the gifts as promised. Imagine my daughter along ways from home and no gifts. I called Central Square Florist in Boston and spoke to David who was courteous, kind and very intelligent. He promised me that he would put together a surprise and make sure she would get it the same day. The gifts from Central Square arrived just hours after I spoke to him and made my daughters day. Central Square rates number 1 in my book. Outstanding service! Thank You from my entire family, you saved the day!

This place is awesome! They do the arrangements for the building where I live and they are incredible. Although they are changed every few days, the flowers always look fresh and great. Some of the arrangments are really exotic - I have no idea where the flowers come from, but it's nice to see a tropical arrangment in the dead of winter. Some of the flowers are so fresh that they look fake - it's amazing.

Central Square doesnt seem like the place to find a great smelling bouquet but surprisingly, Central Square florist has just that. Right outside the Outbound T on Mass Ave, this florist has a decent collection of flowers at rock bottom prices. The sales staff doesnt seem to be too knowledgeable about the flora in the store but with the prices, I dont complain.

As soon as I walked in the door a sales person asked if there was anything special I was looking for. Which helped alot because I wasn't quite sure. They also asked what price range I was interested in. They didn't come out with just one option, but serveral different options and styles. The price was reasonable and the staff helpful. My girlfriend really loved the bouquet. I'll go back again.

PROS: Sales people very helpful, flowers fresh, reasonable and wide selection
CONS: none

I went to their website and order flower. It was back on 2003. The flowers were not fresh (dying). Took them forever to deliver the flower. I was promised to get it delivered by no later than 3 PM but in fact, I got them at 7 PM. Besides that. it was pretty expensive too. The picture on the website was not the same as the flower that you will get. So don't get cheated by the picture.

This is a nice florist with a really pretty selection, but somewhat over priced. The flowers out front average about $12 a bunch. There are usually a wide variety of multicolored rose bouquets. The vegetable plants, marigolds, and pansies are frequently on sale for $2.50. The sales staff took a long time to acknowledge my presence in the store.

Message from Central Square Florist

Established in 1929 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. In the 1940s, Morris Gamer purchased the flower shop. His nephew and present owner of the business, Myron Levine, began working there while he attended Boston English High School in 1952. During his college years at Northeastern University, he continued to work weekends at the flower shop.



In the early 1960s, Myron purchased the shop and in 1982 his wife Sandra joined the business. Their son, David Levine (third generation), is now in charge of the day-to-day operations of the shop as his parents have recently retired. David is supported by a staff of floral designers, customer service representatives, and delivery drivers. His first exposure to the flower business was at 12-years-old when he would help out by sweeping and ringing up sales on the cash register. David, like his father, attended Northeastern University. While in college he worked with his parents and in 1986 he graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration and fully joined the family business.



Today, David's oldest daughter, Jackie (fourth generation), works in the shop while attending college. His younger daughter, Michelle, helps out in the shop periodically.
