The Mercury Man visits Oxfordshire

by Bethany Day on October 24, 2012

Freefields Flowers in Oxfordshire received a special visit from the Interflora Mercury Man last weekend, as a reward for offering their customers excellent levels of customer service.

The Mercury Man is the roman messenger god and has been our world-famous emblem since 1914, encapsulating fast delivery and excellent service.

He travelled to Banbury on Saturday to help out local florist Pauline and her team at Freefields Flowers, delivering and handing out flowers to passers-by.

Pauline said “We were really excited to have been selected by Interflora to have the Mercury Man with us for the day.  We ran a competition in the shop for someone to win a bouquet hand-delivered by the Mercury Man and had a fantastic response.”

Kate Mollart, Brand Manager from Interflora commented “We really appreciate how hard florists such as Pauline work, particularly during these challenging economic times, and wanted to thank and reward Pauline for being so successful.  We hope the team at Freefields Flowers enjoyed working with our Mercury Man – this was his first ever visit to Banbury.”

Pauline has been an Interflora florist for 10 years and a florist for her whole career, inheriting Freefields Flowers from her father.
