“BUY FLOWERS FROM THE FLORIST”
Referring to flower sales over the internet, Çimen said:
“Flowers should be purchased from a florist in terms of freshness, durability and affordable prices. We receive many complaints about orders placed over the internet on special occasions. Especially in orders placed online, the product may not reach the address at the desired time. In this case, victimization occurs, but the shopkeeper delivers the product to the address at the desired time and quality.”
