Gloucester has been revealed as the least romantic city in the country, according to new research unveiled today from Morrisons, with almost one in five claiming to hate Valentine’s Day.
Despite being loved up, a quarter of those in couples admit to upsetting their other halves after forgetting Valentine’s Day, whilst one in five has fallen out with their partner on the day, not exactly the best activity on the most romantic day of the year.
Not to be deterred, Morrisons is determined to inject some love in the air this Valentine’s, so has sent in some Cupids to hand out red roses at the store in Metz Way and Heron Way from 11am to 2pm this Friday.
Customers at the store will be able to pick up a host of Valentine’s Day inspired deals like 18 luxury red roses at just £10 a pop, to boxes of Cadbury’s Milk Tray for only £5.50 and fresh British sirloin steaks at just £4 for a 2 pack, Aberystwyth will certainly be celebrating in style, especially when they’ve washed it all down with a bargain bottle of bubbles, Canti Prosecco is just £4.99 a bottle.
Meanwhile, for local singletons looking for love, Morrisons wine and spirits aisle has been revealed as a hot spot for flirtation, with 43 per cent admitting to exchanging come hither glances whilst browsing.
Gloucester Store Managers Steve Bird and Mark Watkinson, from Morrisons, said: “As soon as we heard that Gloucester needed a boost in the romance stakes we thought that handing out red roses at our stores would be a great way to get the city in the mood.
“We’ve also got a host of romantic Valentine’s Day offers, including a meal deal for two for just £9. That means there’s no excuse for Gloucester when it comes to pulling out all the stops.”
