Ever-increasing demand and short supply lead to shocking flower prices

By on 15th October 2021 0 48 Views

Owing to the festivities, flower prices soared in Coimbatore on Thursday. Due to frequent rains in rural areas of the district, the flower supply took a hit.

Vendors said that the prices of almost all the flowers doubled up. The day also saw a rise in garland prices.

UVS Selvakumar, president of Kovai Trade Flowers Association told Times Of India, ” While demand has gone up, supply wasn’t up to the expected quantity. Farmers supplied less due to frequent showers in the district in the last few days”.

The festivities also witnessed a rise in the prices of fruits, puffed rice, and other puja items. Customers could do nothing but lament the price rise.

RG street, the city’s flower market area, was flooded with crowds. Though police were deployed, social distancing norms and mandatory masks went for a toss.
