Trader Joe's in Chesterfield, on Clarkson Road near Baxter Road, was giving out a free dozen red roses to shoppers over the weekend—and may still be.
All I know is they had bouquets in water hanging around the check-out lines, and after groceries were bagged up and paid for, handed off a bouquet to shoppers.
It may have been timing, it may have been because I brought in re-usable grocery bags.
My guess includes that there were some beautiful flowers that weren't bought up by Valentine's Day, and the good will Trader Joe's builds with handing out a dozen red roses to its customers is absolutely priceless.
In fact, I remember in the parking lot on my way in, seeing several women with bouquets as they returned to their cars, but would never imagine they hadn't paid for them.
