Valentine's Day Is A Busy Time For Floral Shops

With Valentine's Day tomorrow, floral and gift shops are very busy.

With Valentine's Day tomorrow, floral and gift shops are very busy. So busy that many, including Flowers By Us in Grand Forks, have extended their hours. The shop will even be open on Valentine's Day, even though it is usually closed on Sundays. Employees have been busy both in the store and on the road making deliveries. They say having Valentine's Day on a Sunday has actually increased business, because people have been planning for it all week.

Danita Stromley/Flowers By Us Manager: "[It's] the busiest holiday for a two or three day period; this year it's gone all week just because it is on a Sunday."

Stromley says red roses-whether by the dozen, half dozen, or individually-are the big sellers.
