”I don’t have to make much effort to contact my customers. An advantage of a shop that has been around for a long time. My shop is in a sales centre that attracts a lot of people. That makes that I always have traffic and people know how to find my shop. In addition, the flowers are of fantastic quality because I buy them from Van der Plas. That keeps people coming back. Fresh flowers are the best flowers.
The funny thing is that the contact with Van der Plas started the other way round. I had sold a lot of flowers to the Dutchman. I was looking for transport and thus came into contact with Gerrit, the then salesman at Van der Plas. Then the contact was made and I decided to start buying from Van der Plas. First from the truck. But now completely up-to-date: via the webshop.”
