Some AI flower market stores will be designed as a flower house integrating sound and light optics with floral installations to attract visitors. Traditionally, people take flowers home directly from the markets, but the AI flower markets provide delivery service after people place an order on their mobile phone.

The AI flower markets will open with the traditional flower markets at the same time, but the online store accepts advance booking. Advertisements will be placed on subways, bus stations, airports, and LED screens, allowing people to order flowers in the AI flower markets in advance by scanning the QR code.
