Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
In the wake of the GFC, spending on non-essentials understandably took a downward turn. In recent years, however, retail industries have seen a steady return to form and this Valentine’s Day promises to see that trend continuing.
Last year, industry researcher IBISWorld projected that spending on Valentine’s Day would grow by 4.8%. Estimates for 2013 predict continued stable growth, with domestic tourism, jewellery, hospitality, and online flowers businesses being amongst the big winners.
One company who specialise in selling flowers online have certainly noticed this encouraging growth, particularly from mobile users.
Roses Only have seen a 100.88% increase in traffic to their mobile site during the month leading up to Valentine’s Day from visitors on mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets.
This marked growth is a strong indication that mobile sales of flowers and roses are picking up, with flower delivery in Sydney and Melbourne experiencing the strongest growth so far.
