Aussies are displaying their romantic aspect this yr

Sherpa says the Australians turned out to be a romantic bunch on the same day.

More than 10,000 Valentine's Day deliveries were made ahead of the sweetest day, with 50% of those deliveries made on the actual day.

Sherpa says they delivered seven Valentine's Day gifts a minute across Australia.

While roses were the most popular gift, and Roses Only and other florists across Australia rely on Sherpa for their supplies, there has been a tremendous increase in edible flowers, cupcakes and champagne gifts.

"Demand for Sherpa's same-day delivery model has quadrupled since the Covid-19 pandemic began as Australian consumers go online for the variety and convenience of delivery," said Duncan Brett, CEO of Sherpa.

Newcastle turned out to be the most romantic city with 300 customers sending a record number of roses last week.

Other areas with large volumes of flower deliveries included Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast, Gosford on the NSW Central Coast, and Burnley east of Melbourne CBD.

Sherpas are considered employees of the Essential Service and could deliver in locked Melbourne, with 40% of all deliveries in suburbs being made on the same day.
