Local florists preparing for Valentine’s Day rush

Posted: Updated:

CORPUS CHRISTI - Valentine’s Day is just two days away!

We all know what happens when the special occasion slips your mind, so employees at the Blossom Shop Florist are hoping to keep many husbands out of the dog house come Wednesday.

Florists there are working around to clock to make more than 500 deliveries before Cupid’s Day.

“We've got about half of that for Monday and Tuesday, but by the time it gets to Wednesday, it'll be double that amount,” A.C. Gilmore said.

The business has been owned by the Gilmore family for nearly 60 years, and while trends come and go, Gilmore said it’s still the classics that keep customers coming back year after year.

“It's still roses. We try to buy different and more exciting vases, and that's always good, but it's still roses, candy and teddy bears,” Gilmore said.

Customized Valentine’s Day orders will be taken until the doors close on Wednesday.
