Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) February 13, 2013
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, women across the country are dreaming of red roses appearing on their desk or at their door tomorrow - 14th February. “Will he send me a dozen roses? Will he remember?” you can hear them ask.
Well the answer to this question may be found in the suburb you live in or the office you work in. At Roses Only we deliver love to thousands upon thousands of romantics each year. And our research has uncovered some interesting findings about where Australia’s most romantic suburbs are and which offices in our major cities receive the highest number of red rose deliveries on Valentine’s Day.
Sydney is Australia’s most romantic city with the highest volume of red roses delivered on 14th February. It seems most men also love to surprise their special someone at work, by having roses delivered to the office. The CBD is the most popular suburb for rose deliveries on Valentine’s Day, followed by Surry Hills, Northbridge, Leichhardt and Balmain.
When it comes to office deliveries, ladies working in the MLC Centre, Grosvenor Place or Governor Phillip Tower have good odds of receiving a Roses Only delivery with their name on it, with an average of 230, 170 and 130 deliveries respectively made to these buildings each Valentine’s Day.
In Melbourne, the CBD is also the top suburb, followed by Docklands, South Yarra, Mulgrave and Port Melbourne. The city’s most romantic offices are 120 Collins St (average 170 deliveries), 101 Collins Street (average 130 deliveries) and 525 Collins Street (average 90 deliveries).
Brisbane’s CBD boasts the most deliveries to 1 Eagle Street (average 120 deliveries). Followed by ANZ House (average 100 deliveries) and the Westpac Building (average 70 deliveries). The most romantic suburbs following the CBD are West End, New Farm, Toowong and Chermside.
The pattern is similar in Adelaide with the CBD again playing host to the highest volume of Valentine’s Day deliveries, followed by North Adelaide, Norwood, Unley Park and Wayville. The most romantic offices in terms of the volume of red roses delivered are the Grenfell Centre (60 average deliveries), ANZ House (average 40 deliveries) and Westpac House (average 30 deliveries).
“Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to show someone you love them. The day is also about public displays of affection, making it the perfect opportunity to send roses to the office or your loved ones workplace,” says James Stevens, Founder & CEO of Roses Only. “Men in relationships should send flowers at least three times a year to their someone special – on their anniversary, birthday and Valentine’s Day. Of course, a couple of deliveries sent outside these dates, when the gift is unexpected, makes for an almost perfect man.”
