"The pharmacy is near the florist?" should be accepted. In English a florist is the term for a flower shop, regardless of the sex of the person serving you. As florist is synonymous with flower shop, the M Lurch "explanation" seems not to explain anything. I agree re accepting chemist, pharmacy or drugstore - also these are all just synonyms in English.
Actually, it's worse: right or wrong also depends on how developed the writer's English is (& presumably Romanian too). I have good first language English UK with experience teaching grammar....but have to recall poor English sentences to get passed them in Duo. But, hey ! I have learned some Romanian too. I just may not pay for D yet, until it finds a way to clean up it's language and attitudes.
