Amid the coronavirus outbreak, many businesses have found themselves in unfortunate hardship. This trickles through to lots of different industries – even something that totally slipped our mind, flowers!
The pretty little plants really brighten up anyone’s day, but with so little places to go to, they’ve been sitting in warehouses across town.
Well, hopefully not for too much longer. At least for one business, anyway!
Wholesaler Mr Fresh has announced it will give away 2,000 bunches of flowers to the people of Melbourne over the coming days. The man behind the business, Paul Pavlou said the move was all about spreading positivity and hope to those who have been affected by these unprecedented times.
