In 1969, a Londoner by the name of Clare Pollak and her husband, Fred, bought a small flower shop in Bondi Junction, Sydney. Their distinctive, beautifully-designed arrangements sold like hot cakes. And it wasn’t long before one shop had turned into many.
Fast forward 50 years. Pearsons is now one of the biggest florists in the city. Despite such success, it’s still a family enterprise - known for its warm, personal touch.
These days, Barbara and Bernard Pollak run the business, alongside Bernard’s son Avi, making it a third-generation operation. All day, every day, Pearsons’ black-and-white vans carry dozens of bouquets across the city – bringing cheer to the families, friends and colleagues of their clients. It’s difficult to imagine how Sydney would celebrate birthdays, mark anniversaries, make get well wishes and send congratulations without them.
Pearsons depend on their 12-strong fleet to make sure every delivery arrives fresh and on time. So, they’ve put their trust in the NRMA since the early days. We’ve kept them moving for nearly five decades.
