Morrison's to double number of professional florists in its stores

MORRISON'S is doubling the number of fully qualified, expert florists in its stores to 300 this Autumn; to provide fresh, bespoke bouquets for its customers. The supermarket is expanding its in store florist shops, which will see a further 60 florist stations installed across the UK; to take the total to over 100. The new florist shops will provide 180 additional roles for qualified professional florists, who may be out of work following the impact that the pandemic has had on the high street.

Recent Google data has found that flowers have been one of the country's most popular online purchases during lockdown, with online searches up 277%. Morrison's is currently selling over four million flower stems every week. All Morrison's florists will offer a handmade to order bouquet service, with customers able to choose from 75 different stem varieties. Bouquets can be crafted for any occasion and to any budget.

They are prepared whilst customers do their weekly shop. Morrison's offers a 5 day freshness guarantee for all of its flowers in the home. The supermarket works closely with growers to plant their fields and has one of the quickest:- 'field to store' transit times. Stems are delivered fresh to stores each day, sourced from Flower World; a 17.5 acre flower site, wholly owned by the supermarket.


The prices of Morrison's bouquets are up to a third lower than those from well known national online florists as it has direct relationships with growers rather than working with wholesalers.  Jane Watson, Flowers Manager at Morrison's said:- "Flowers make people feel happier; with their beautiful shapes, bright colours and scents. We work with some of the best growers in the world and have some of the best stems. So we wanted to have the best florists in store to make bouquets for our customers. It's been a difficult year for the flower industry, and we hope this also provides good job prospects for florists looking for work."
