Many Florists Consider Valentine's Day Their Black Friday

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash.-- Valentine's Day is obviously a busy day for florists. In fact, many of them consider it their Black Friday.

It was a very busy morning at the Bella Fiore Flower Shop in Yakima.

They tell us Valentine's Day is one of their two busiest days.

They say they've shipped at least 300 orders of flowers this year.

They also received nearly half their orders right on Valentines Day, so it can be a stressful time.

"We have, you know, numerous walk-ins throughout the day all looking for a last minute gift, flowers or what have you," says Bella Fiore Owner Donnie Tongate.

Many flower shops also diversify with chocolates and stuffed animals for the Valentine's Day holiday.

The shop says Mother's Day is their second busiest day of the year.
