Ready for FTD delivery
Story and Photos by Cynthia Sheridan

For Shoreline residents receiving an *FTD floral delivery this holiday season, there’s a good chance that it was arranged by Kayla Bradley, floral manager of Shoreline Safeway on 15th NE and NE 175 in North City. 

Since August of this year Kayla has been assembling FTD online orders which are then delivered through FTD (or sometimes through Doordash). 

Kayla is also responsible for arrangements sold over the counter in North City Safeway as well as ordering flowers from the wholesale flower market, putting together gift baskets and maintaining the retail flower department.

The delivery process is carried out by Kegan Rivers of Jet City Services, who contracts with FTD to pick up the flower displays at Shoreline Safeway.

Karla and Kegan have been challenged by a very busy covid Christmas, averaging 70 orders per day in the latter part of December.


*FTD, Florists' Transworld Delivery, is a floral wire service, retailer and wholesaler based in Downers Grove, Illinois. It was founded in 1910.
