Big day for flower shops

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.— Flower shop owners say Mother's Day is the biggest weeklong holiday for the flower business.  That means people start buying flowers before the day and even days after.

One flower shop owner says she will see many shoppers Monday and Tuesday because either they forgot or maybe mom was out of town.  If you're one of those people, you may not want to place your order online

"It also take a long time for us to look fro that picture and try to find the right flowers and find a substitute, and if we can't, we have to call the customer and let them know what we can do," says Jackie Brown, Shelby's Floral & Gifts.

Brown says if you need to pick-up flowers Monday to make-up for Sunday, you have until 7pm at Shelby's Floral & Gifts in Kennewick.
