Valentine’s Day Roses have Pricing Issues

Ah! It is the season of love, romance and intimacy. Saint Valentine’s is here in all its red heart shaped glory and ecstasy. But wait a minute! 

Is there any room for negativity on this day of positive bliss and good vibes? It seems there are a few hurdles especially in matters having to do with the rates of roses

Many individuals like to remain a little thrifty despite the lavish amounts they spend on their significant others on Valentine’s. But the costly red roses on Valentine’s day will only get sold to the highest bidder. 

The market is primed for this beautiful and vain commodity. Like extremely attractive women who resist the advances of their many lovers, red roses are a touch-me-not entity on the day when “I Love You” is the most common phrase. 

The tug of war between supply and demand drives up the prices. Several Latin American countries also ramp up production of the roses for the date of affection. Then the costs of production at the farms not to mention the transportation fuel and equipment cause further increases in prices. 

The rate of a dozen roses may vary from $10 at your local shop all the way to $100 from a costly florist’s venue. There are ways by which the local shops save up on the cost price. 

By not offering delivery service and keeping the stems short, they automatically slash prices. And the costs vary according to the day before and during Valentine’s

This is therefore an instance where a rose is not a rose. It is a very complex economic bargain that the buyer enters when he buys one of the scarlet thorny beauties.
