“We are excited about the cupcake decorating event on May 11th. Family members can shop our store while kids, age 12 and under, decorate a cupcake for Mom, for free,” says Sue Brooks, Director of Bakery and Frozen Foods for the family-owned supermarket chain. “This proves to be a wonderful and well-attended event each year we do it. All of our stores are participating, and the decorating will begin at noon and go until 2:00 p.m.,” adds Brooks.
Sunday, May 12 is Mother’s Day and King Kullen is proud to be the destination for the freshest and most sought-after flowers from around the world and arrangements created by floral experts. King Kullen will be fully stocked with all the flowers that customers need to ensure Moms and loved ones feel appreciated on Mother’s Day this year.
King Kullen is a lot more than just groceries. Their Floral Departments carry roses in whatever quantity a customer desires. “This is our largest floral holiday. We plan on selling over a quarter of a million roses this Mother’s Day, so many roses, that if those rose stems were laid, end-to-end, it would be over 77 miles of roses - that’s the distances between our Valley Stream store to the west and Bridgehampton store to the east. We will be carrying double dozens, one-half dozens, sweetheart rose dozens, spray roses, rose vases and single stem rose bouquets, plus just about any combination imaginable of roses combined with other assorted beautiful flowers. Our bouquets are our biggest seller for Mother’s Day and we have professional floral experts at every store that hand-tie our bouquets,” says Lesa Forte, Floral Department Coordinator.
The supermarkets also carry a variety of other Mother’s Day favorites including Gerbera daisies, lilies, hydrangeas, sunflowers, tulips and peonies. Other King Kullen favorites include seasonal spring bedding plants including New Guinea impatiens. They have a wide variety of larger sized garden pots of hydrangeas, hibiscus trees, and hybrid and knockout rose bushes and hanging geraniums. “Our Phalaenopsis Orchids for indoors are increasingly gaining popularity for Mother’s Day,” says Forte, “and we will be selling a lot of upgraded blooming and tropical foliage plants in ceramic containers, tins and wicker baskets.”
