PHUKET: Flower vendors across Phuket are relishing increased orders and sales for the ‘day for lovers’, even despite rising prices.
Pran Supasri, a flower shop owner near Vachira Hospital says, “Rose prices have not increased significantly when compared to last year’s price.”
He added that even though the price of roses has increased slightly ahead of Valentine’s Day, flower vendors are selling at the same price as last year. He says that he believes this year’s orders will be as good as last year.
“The most popular colors on sale are red and pink, with small roses costing 20 baht and large ones 100 baht each. We have also imported black and rainbow roses from the Netherlands for sale locally, which cost 500 baht each,” he explained.
“Our delivery orders start from 500 baht per bouquet, not including the delivery fee that is based on distance.
“Our target markets are students and working-aged people,” he concluded.
