Schenectady, NY, 2015-5-5 — /EPR Retail News/ — The youngest shoppers will have the opportunity to put together a special gift for Mom at Price Chopper’s 7th annual “Build-A-Bouquet” activity on Saturday, May 9 (the day before Mother’s Day) from 12:00 pm – 4:00 pm and on Sunday, May 10 (Mother’s Day) from 10:00 am – 2:00 pm.
“Kids enjoy the opportunity to give Mom a special gift, especially when it’s something that they can put together themselves. ‘Build-A-Bouquet’ for Mother’s Day was designed to give kids an outlet for their creativity, while celebrating the abundance of colorful and aromatic flowers that symbolize spring,” said Mona Golub, Price Chopper vice president of public relations and consumer services and a mother, herself. “It’s wonderful to watch the kids take great care, not only in selecting and wrapping the flowers but in personalizing their card.”
Children 12 and younger will be able to select three bunches of flowers, from a selection of alstromeria, poms, mini carnations, carnations, snapdragons, matsumoto, cremons, spiders, sunflowers, stock, baby’s breath, limonium, statice and asters. Once the bouquet is assembled, the flowers will be wrapped in colorful tissue, tied with ribbon and personalized with a specially-designed card for Mom. The cost to build a bouquet is $5 plus tax.
Due to popular demand, Build-A-Bouquet stations will be set up at all Price Chopper locations.
