Running a florist business in hard times

Well, the share market has been up and down this week, as has the dollar. We can see fewer people are buying flowers this week and who can blame them? For some of us, its time to batten the hatches and show some restraint on spending.

But don’t worry too much – history shows that, while the florist industry is impacted by downturns in the economy, the news isn’t totally bad. Flowers tend to be one of the few ‘little luxuries’ that people allow themselves.

So, now is definitely the time to make sure the business isn’t wasting any money, but don’t panic and assume you will be shutting shop. You may have to cut some financial corners, but most businesses should be able to continue.

And eventually, as with all cycles, things will get better again.
