Join the campaign to boost local florists

With over 300 florists signed up plus seven brilliant real florist ambassadors leading the way, the new Use Them or Lose Them campaign from Country Baskets, which aims to get consumers spending more at their local florist, is gathering serious steam and is set to go live at consumer level in just a few days.

Country Baskets currently have over 400,000 consumer buyers; prime customers for the UK's local florists. So they've budgeted £25,000 on the new campaign to put the two together.

How does it work?

Country Baskets are giving away 5000 x £5 vouchers to all their Green customers, who then can go to participating florists who will redeem them for goods (1 voucher per transaction). The Gold florist then brings the voucher back to their local Country Baskets store and redeems it against their next purchase. No money changes hands but the Gold florist has received a new customer that can be converted into a regular, the customer gets a discount they might not have otherwise had and Country Baskets have achieved their aim of generating more sales for their Gold florist.
