Paying for New London-mandated trash bags will hurt this floristTuesday, July 17, 2018
We all have to recycle, it really is a must to help our environment and landfills. New London should do what Waterford did, buy the larger recycling bins and supply them to us. Waterford recouped the cost in the first year. I know money is tight, but as a small business owner and taxpayer our money is tight also. The cost of these bags will most likely add $40 to $50 each week to my cost.Our family business has been very fortunate in the support the New London people and the people of surrounding towns have given us since 1910, making us one of the area’s oldest family-operated businesses. My business and all the others will have to pass on this cost increase to our clients.George FisherFisher FloristNew London ... https://www.theday.com/article/20180710/OP02/180719970

Eventually Hessong came home, and Sheets continued to run her machine, even showing Dale the necessary steps in the process.“She cared about people,” daughter Lori Arment said. “She cared about people’s feelings and their well being.”“That’s one of the highlights of her life to be able to help in that way at that time,” daughter Cathy Hiatt said.Helping others, faith and family were the pillars of Sheets’ life.

MELBOURNE, Australia, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- One industry that has been severely affected by prolonged and snap lockdowns is Australia's florists. Local Melbourne flower shops, such as Amazing Graze Flowers, have been forced to discard blooms they could have otherwise sold.Continue ReadingFlower Delivery in MelbourneWhile other industries have also been affected, the florist industry, in particular, is a slave to the nature of its product. Once flowers have been cut, they have a short shelf-life where they either need to be sold or discarded. Lockdowns have put Amazing Graze Flowers and many florists into a less-than-desirable situation as they were forced to get rid of stock ordered in anticipation of flower delivery in Melbourne.The halt of events and weddings also had repercussions for local florists, reducing one of their most profitable revenue streams for close to a year. Now that gatherings are permitted, there are those who are making big orders again. However, local florists say that many have decreased their budget for flowers, opting to have a scaled-back version of the event they'd once imagined.On the other... https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/melbourne-florists-feel-the-force-of-the-pandemic-301243018.html
