Sweet Times Ahead for Chocolate & Flower Shops Ahead of Valentine's Day
Make no mistake about it, this is big business for them. Nationally, the holiday rakes in billions of dollars between the candy, cards, and flowers.
So there's plenty of opportunity to cash in plus the fact the special day falls on a weekend only makes it even better.
Local florists recommend folks buying local, even with online shopping, since the money stays in the community. Also, if you have flowers delivered make sure they aren't exposed to the cold for too long. It can kill them quickly.
