Flower shops are among the non-essential businesses that will be allowed to reopen this Friday in the city of Los Angeles. This comes at a perfect time, as many will look to purchase flowers for their Mother's Day celebrations this Sunday (May 10).
According to the Los Angeles Times, flower shops all across Los Angeles County will reopen this Friday (05/08). They will be required to operate with updated safety protocols which includes: curbside pickup and wearing face masks.
LA County officials made the announcement this week (Wednesday), allowing several retailers to open their doors after closing due to Coronavirus. Clothing stores, book stores sporting good stores and car dealerships got the green light to welcome back dearly missed customers. All the aforementioned businesses are considered "low-risk" establishments.
The LA Times adds that Mother's Day is a pivotal event for flower shops. In LA, the most renowned flower trade/business is the Flower District in Downtown. The Flower District encompasses nearly 6 blocks, and is the home of hundreds of flower vendors.
