For beau­ti­ful flow­ers that are al­ways in bloom.

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

With per­sonal ser­vice at its heart, it’s no sur­prise that Al­ways & For­ever Flo­ral De­sign based in Larkhall, South La­nark­shire, is one of the most pop­u­lar florists in Scot­land. The owner Henk Wes­selink is the proud holder of a Masters De­gree in Floristry and hails from Hol­land, the in­ter­na­tional home of floristry.

Hav­ing worked all over the world, Henk set­tled in Larkhall four years ago to run Al­ways & For­ever. The shop has been in busi­ness for over 10 years, and Henk’s per­sonal and cre­ative ap­proach, along with a real de­sire to pro­vide the per­fect flo­ral ar­range­ment, has made the pop­u­lar florists a real suc­cess story.

With unique ex­per­tise in wed­dings and spe­cial events, the shop ben­e­fits from be­ing close to many of South La­nark­shires’ most beau­ti­ful venues.

Henk cre­ates mod­ern hand-tied bou­quets with that ex­tra touch of style and panache, lis­ten­ing to the cus­tomer, sug­gest­ing ideas and work­ing hand in hand to ful­fil their dreams. “Lis­ten­ing to our cus­tomers and un­der­stand­ing their vi­sion is so re­ward­ing. Then the joy that our ar­range­ments bring is prob­a­bly the best part of my day,” com­mented Henk.

Mod­ern de­signs, tra­di­tional ar­range­ments and the per­sonal touch en­sure that cus­tomers are de­lighted and keep com­ing back time af­ter time. Henk puts a lot of that loy­alty down to know­ing his mar­ket as well as his flow­ers. “We love our cus­tomers’ loy­alty and their will­ing­ness to buy from a small lo­cal busi­ness, and we think they should be re­warded for that,” con­cluded Henk.

Henk and his team try to un­der­stand what the cus­tomer re­ally wants and they have re­cently started a part­ner­ship with Mii-Promo from Markadis, a straight for­ward loy­alty re­wards sys­tem. Sim­ply put Mii-Promo uses sales data to sug­gest the best way to keep the cus­tomers happy and com­ing back. It does this without cus­tomers need­ing to carry yet an­other loy­alty card. For Henk, that is the sweet smell of suc­cess for every­body.

And to cel­e­brate to the start of sum­mer Henk is giv­ing a spe­cial of­fer to all his cus­tomers.
