Florist not flourishing?

It looks as if the new florist in Camberley’s Princess Way is closing down already.  A pity.

  1. I am sorry to read this, but frankly not surprised. The shop never looked inviting and their selection of cut flowers was limited. Anyone looking to start an independent specialist retail shop should visit The Fish Shop and see, hear and experience how to be successful. I also fear for the florist on Jenkins Hill and, dare I say it, the Little Local Deli . I try and support these new ventures, but if they’re not enticing me in……..

    • I’m inclined to agree with much of what you say. I’ve no personal experience of running a shop, but I guess that unless you’re ‘lucky’ enough to be in just the right location with products that are in particular demand, is darn hard work. The customer is always right, and can always go elsewhere. In Camberley, an awful lot of ‘customers’ do go elsewhere, too.Many residents say they avoid the town centre…

    • Of course, Longacres is in a league of its own when it comes to flowers – especially cut flowers. Deservedly so; I believe it means getting up at about 4:00am to meet container loads from Holland.
