-- Bloomex, Canada’s largest florist and Gift Basket provider has formally entered the Live Lobster (http://bloomex.ca/
144) business. Bloomex began offering Live Lobster caught fresh off the Atlantic coast to Canadian consumers last week. Bloomex owner Dimitri Lokhonia was on a production facility tour in Halifax when the idea struck him - “We have been trying to develop a gift option for men for a number of years – Fresh Live Lobster just seemed like a great idea”. The average live lobster offered is an ideal 1.5 lbs and a “Dinner for Two” (http://bloomex.ca/index.php?page=shop.product_details&...
is an extremely attractive $44.95. The Live Lobster is caught fresh daily and hand packaged and shipped via airmail for Next Day Delivery coast to coast across Canada for an additional $9.99.
Bloomex has developed their new line of Live Lobster, by the lobster. You can buy a single lobster and send it off as a gift for a forlorn Easterner living out west in the fields of Calgary or buy them 2, 4, 6, 8 or 15 lobsters at a time – all at different price points/lbs depending on just how big of a Lobster feast you are planning. From an intimate gourmet Dinner for Two as mentioned above to an all out Lobster Boil Party featuring 30 lbs (15 lobsters) for $269 – that works out to under $20 per person ($9.99/lbs) including shipping (shipping is $9.99 regardless of how big or small your Live Lobster order is). Just add butter and presto you have the setting for the ultimate gourmet feast. Imagine a dinner party for 15 featuring fresh caught Canadian Live Lobster for just $269.00. Now that’s
