"We are glad that florist shops in North Rhine-Westphalia and Hessen will be allowed to reopen under certain conditions and would be pleased if other Federal States follow this example. In this difficult situation for all of us, Veiling Rhein-Maas is doing everything possible to organise the sales in Straelen-Herongen in a safe way. This is why we have taken various protective measures. After extensive purchases of food and drugstore items, people hopefully have a stronger need to decorate their homes with joy bringing flowers and plants again! It's great that there are already various initiatives in our industry that are boosting the sale of flowers and plants. Together with our employees, suppliers and customers we will master this challenging situation", state Günther Esser and Cees Hoekstra, Managing Directors of Veiling Rhein-Maas.
