Flower retailing 2010
actual food, you know the thing. Those films never feature flower shops, but if they did they would look like our local Marks and Sparks.
Evidently the retailing giant has decided we should all buy our flowers in sealed packages. If it works for hosiery.....
"Our new fresh flower packaging seals the flowers in their own protective atmosphere until you get them home....bloomin' marvellous!"
Bloomin' marvellous? shoot the copywriter now.
I don't understand, I thought flower buying was supposed to be a sensory experience, whether you choose a florist, supermarket or garage forecourt, or have i been doing it wrong? Will my customers demand their tussie-mussies in hermetically sealed packets? Don't even dare.
I did enjoy whipping out my camera and snapping the stand in situ, i felt like Donal Macintyre (pre Dancing on Ice) or that man who claimed Hot Dogs were vegetarian as they don't actually contain anything that can be called Meat. The food technologist was brilliant, I like a man in a lab coat.
Thoughts please....on the flowers not my fetish for lab coats.
